Obamessiah Suck-Up of the Day

Chris Matthews is plainly so in love with Obama that I may have to retire this NOfP feature. This exchange is from the February 11th edition of "Hardball":
MARK MCKINNON, FORMER JOHN MCCAIN ADVISER: But I'll tell ya he's discovering one thing that President Bush did early on and that, that's this is a hard job Chris. It's a really hard job.

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Yeah but he's not saying that.

MCKINNON: Well-

KAREN FINNEY, DNC COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR: He's saying, "It's the job. I know this is what I signed up for."

MATTHEWS: He doesn't look like he's having a hard time.

MCKINNON: Yeah. Well he is. In fact I think he's being very candid about it.

FINNEY: No, well I think he's working hard.

MATTHEWS: Yeah, he's Fred Astaire out there. He is light-hearted, I mean he's light, he still moves around with incredible alacrity.

I saw video of the President dancing at his inauguration. Fred Astaire was not the first person who came to mind.

Chris Matthews will have to watch reruns of these in Purgatory until he gets it.

I don't care if Matthews ever acknowledges that he has a man crush. My issue is when MSNBC "gets it."

I think the problem is not MSNBC Getting It.

I think the problem is them being Bent Over And Liking It.
