Video: Chris Matthews pretty tired of "jackasses" goofing on him for getting a thrill over Obama

Via the Examiner, what’s the best part? The palpable bitterness in his tone or the fact that he’s taking his frustration out on the most mild-mannered creature in the media universe, a C-SPAN anchor? As you watch him solemnly lament the fact that a man might be mocked for Loving America Too Much, remember that not only does he work for a network that sneers openly at “teabaggers” and their silly tricorned ideas about saving the country before it implodes fiscally, he once dedicated a full hour to scaremongering about grassroots conservatives being some sort of proto-militia. You have to endure that while he has to endure occasional “leg tingles” jokes. And meanwhile, the rap sheet for MSNBC’s darlings in OWS gets longer and longer and longer. We all love America in different ways, I guess.

Make sure to watch to the end for him idly wondering about the “orientation” of people who accuse him of feeling tingly when he listens to O. That’s the first clip; the second clip, from today’s “Hardball,” is — well, it’s just the greatest political interview ever.
