Giddy and objective
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, February 13, 2008

Good grief:
I have to tell you, you know, it's part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama's speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event. He speaks about America in a way that has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with the feeling we have about our country. And that is an objective assessment.
That's Chris Matthews' "analysis" of the Obama speech last night. As they say in Texas hold'em, Matthews is "all in."

Gross. Even Chris Matthews gets a boner from listening to Barrack’s boilerplate.

He should get a woman (or a man....whatever floats his boat)

In 1984 when Gary Hart started running on a fresh face and "new ideas", he was challenged with "Where’s the beef?" and it hurt Hart that he didn’t have good answers.

In 2008 I don’t think Democrats care. They just want to feel good.

Obama isn’t a candidate; he’s a drug.

My, my, my, yet another one that has been hypnotized by Obama. When the truths finally come out about Obama all is followers will be very disappointed.

I hope they took a commercial break for Matthews to clean up.

That feeling Matthews had up his leg was Obama reaching for his wallet. Ours are all going to be a lot lighter.

I caught MSNBC this morning and they had Matthews on for group therapy with Joe and Mika and Mike Barnicle and Pat Buchanan. I didn’t hear any reference to his Obamagasm from the night before. But when Matthews entered everyone was chuckling.

Anyway, Pat Buchanan was dumbstruck that the Clitons seem not to be dropping a bomb on Obama, hitting him with all they got. I wonder about that too. Hillary’s normally extra-arrogant campaign aide Howard Wolfson was on somewhere (Fox, maybe) and he appeared uncharacteristically sheepish and scared.

Then Drudge is carrying a link to Ben Smith at Politico who reports that Obama’s campaign manager is saying it’s over, that Hillary cannot win, by the numbers.

Maybe the Obama campaign has shown the Clintons something through the backchannel that amounts to political nuclear deterrence. Something that would cost the Clintons their brand (though it’s hard to imagine what that could be; maybe a video of Bill having sex with a racehorse?).

And from a strategic point of view it would certainly be wise of Obama’s camp to have something like that. Maybe that explains why Bill had to go out last month and do his own wet work. Perhaps there was a warning out there that if so much as a nasty rumor about Obama appeared on the blog horizon, a video would be on YouTube (or something else) before any explanation could reach Obama’s campaign. The assumption being that the Clintons were behind it, which would be a pretty safe assumption.

Who knows. It would be funny if American politics suddenly came down to a MAD balance of terror, and there was an outbreak of "civility."

Oh, that? Old news. Besides, you can do anything with photoshop. And what kind of bigot are you, anyway? It was (if it happened at all, which I dispute) consensual sex between two adult critters. And we need to get on with the people’s business at this critical juncture, not play ’gotcha’ and engage in The Politics of Personal Destruction. Who finances your blog, anyway? Shame on you. Your attempted ’swiftboating’ of the family of a respected political leader is despicable.

Why do I suspect that Matthews privately calls that frisson that runs up his leg

Emotive voters - confirmed by several of my family/friends who are consumed with Obamamania. McCain ought to hope for Clinton...
