Creepy Moment of the Primary Coverage: Tweety Gets a Tingle
Edited on Wed Feb-13-08 05:09 AM by JCMach1
Ewwww... Did anyone else catch the moment when Chris Matthews (aka Tweety) on MSNBC talked about how Obama's speech gave him a tingle that ran up his leg. EEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! :puke:

Please note, this is not an insult of Obama's speech but my singular distaste for the thought of Tweety having a TINGLE.

Anyone else nearly vomit at the thought of this???

...During MSNBC's live coverage of Tuesday's presidential primary elections, after the speeches of Barack Obama and John McCain had aired, Chris Matthews expressed his latest over the top admiration for Obama's speaking skills as the MSNBC anchor admitted that Obama's speech created a "thrill" in his leg: "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." Minutes later, Brian Williams poked fun at Matthews' confession: "Let's talk about that feeling Chris gets up his leg when Obama talks ...

All I can say is :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke:

(although, on second thought, it does bring to mind the disturbing moment during "Liberty Weekend", the Republican-coopted celebration of the Statue of Liberty's anniversary, when, after some kind of rousing display of something I've long forgotten, Peter Jennings said to his viewers: "I'm limp!")

Too much media information.

2. Between the 'tingle' and the regular spittle-spraying, I think Tweets should probably be tested
for Mad Cow Disease.


:rofl:

6. What was even better was the look on Keith's face when he said it.
He showed what a "trooper" he is by not bursting out in laughter.

Anybody got a screen capture?

9. hmmm why doesn't he get chills up the spine, or on the arms, like normal folks?
Matthews - lets just give him a new show... "the ick factor".

13. Wait, let me be generous here. I'm actually proud of Tweety for saying this.
It shows he can move on after Fred, then Rudy, crushed him so.

16. THis is pretty funny, but behind the laughter, I think that Obama taps into the Matthews demographic
- people like Tweety who admire style over substance (IOW, a big chunk of the Bush voters) will consider voting for BHO in the GE. FWIW, I think this demographic put JFK over the top in 1960.

Also, before you starting yelling, I do NOT think that Obama lacks substance, especially when compared to McCain, whose main selling points seem to be that he's really old and wants to continue wars until the country's broke.

Just MNSHO

17. Why not just discuss the homoerotics of Obama's coverage?
Watch VERY carefully the words that male commentators use when speaking of Obama.

It's no mistake Obama does better among men!
