That thrill isn't gone for Hardball host Chris Matthews when it comes to President Obama. Our weekly look at the loudest screech from the mainstream media features Matthews, flustered by current criticism of Obama, calling the president the perfect man. He said on his show:
"This guy's done everything right. He's raised his family right. He's fought his way all the way to the top of the Harvard Law Review, in a blind test becomes head of the Review, the top editor there. Everything he's done is clean as a whistle. He's never not only broken any law, he's never done anything wrong. He's the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American. And all they do is trash the guy!"
Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: "Matthews' level of infatuation with Obama makes him too easy to ridicule, so I'll just point out the all too obvious: He's become a parody of himself and an embarrassment to self-respecting journalists."
Rating: Five out of five screams.
