ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Obama-gasm by The "Objective" MSM

I've mentioned previous Obama-gasms, but this one by Chris Matthews last night is just hilarious. From Newsbusters:

[...]
KEITH OLBERMANN: John McCain speaking after his three victories in the Potomac primaries tonight, from Alexandria, Virginia, to the tunes of Johnny B. Goode, instrumental only. And in a statement which I hope transcends political orientation and party affiliation and all that, I would think, Chris, as we start to analyze what we have heard here, the rule has to be, if you can, always speak before Barack Obama, not after Barack Obama.

CHRIS MATTHEWS: 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.

OLBERMANN: Steady.

Chris, that tingling feeling in your leg is just a sign that you going to need Obama kneepads.

No doubt Chris will assure us that his coverage of Obama in The General will be completely and totally objective. In fact, after describing the tingly feeling that Obama gives him, Chris made the case that the feelings that Obama's rhetoric causes is an "objective assessment:"
MATTHEWS: 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. John McCain is a hero. I thought it was very appropriate that Barack Obama extended that fact-

OLBERMANN: And very savvy.
We are soooo screwed. The MSM is going to push and shove the entire Obama fantasy down our throats.

"We are soooo screwed."

No fooling. Invest in ethanol; after the elections, Americans will be drinking it like the Russians drank vodka. To numb the pain.
