Matthews: Obama Speech Caused 'Thrill Going Up My Leg'
Newsbusters ^

Posted on 02/13/2008 10:00:28 AM PST by Boatlawyer

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 ... That seems to be the headline of this half hour."

It was funny — and wierd. A thrill up his leg. Matthews is like a teenage girl talking about a “dreamy” teacher. There is no pause between thinking and speaking for Matthews.

Would not be complete without reference to Scarborough’s riff on Matthews comment about Clinton Campaign Manager’s possible “feeling running DOWN his leg.”

"Chris Matthews Gets a Feeling Up his Legs"

Was he using a male blow up doll filled with hot water?

I bet that feeling up Crissy’s leg was Olbermensch taking a leak on it...

Maybe Obama is the anti-christ calling his own. Thou wilt know them from their tingling in the legs and they will seem as uncontrolled teenage girls.

Chris Matthews probably got more feeling going down his leg as he giggled...

It’s going to be hard for Chrissy to live this one down. He’s going to have to post a photo of Helen Thomas on the set to keep his excitment to a minimum.

Are fools like Mathews accountable to anyone any more? Isn’t there a “boss” somewhere to chastise him for sounding like a street pervert in a trench-coat when he talks like this?

**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**

This may seem funny, but to me it is alarming.

How many other people get a “thrill” sensation when they listen to Barak Hussein Obama?

Reminds me of Hitler, sad to say. The people of that time were very thrilled to listen to the German orator.

Jeez-Oh-Pete. Sorry. It was probably the fact that this was my first topic post in the 8 years I’ve been a member coupled with the fact that the link where I got the title from was not allowed to be used... anyway, won’t happen again... at least not for probably eight years, if history is any indicator.

I saw it too. They also made a comments that no candidate wants to follow Obama in a speech, meaning they would look insignificant in comparison a cheep shot at McCain who just finished a speech.

The sensation Chris Matthews felt was the usual sh!^ that came out of his mouth which landed in his lap and ran down his leg. Matthews is an idiot.

When we’re excited by a sensory stimulus our body secretes a chemical into the central and peripheral nervous system similar to norepinephrine (NE) and dopamine (DA) called phenylethylamine, or PEA for short. Butterflies in the stomach, tingling hands, feet and inner thighs (at least, we women can attest to the tingling thigh sensation)-it’s all PEA release that causes it.

The sensation I get is in the stomach and I refer to it as nausea.

Brian hosted Saturday Night Live in November and I was shocked at how well he did.

No; what I feel is a bit higher, and it isn’t a “thrill.”

I googled Helen Thomas to try to find an appropriate picture for Matthews, not overused but just right. Somehow while searching Helen Thomas and sexy this came up on the first page:

Now tell me that Florida made the right choice by going with Martinez.

Matthews probably is upset that he can’t get between Obama’s legs and thrill him. Democrats seem to thrive upon condoning these actions in contrast with Republican’s attitudes.
