Chris Matthews: Jackasses, Stop Asking About Obama Speech from National Cable and Telecommunications Association on FORA.tv
Yes. Chris Matthews is sick of people making fun of him for declaring on national television that he got a "thrill up his leg" after listening to President Obama.
Fishbowl DC notes that Matthews unleashed on CSPAN’s Steve Scully, after asking about the "thrill up his leg" comment during a media panel at a convention in Boston.
"Is the thrill still there?" asked Scully.
Matthews wasn't thrilled with the question.
"I hope that you feel satisfied that you've used the most obvious question that is raised by every horse's ass right-winger I ever bump into," Matthews responded, after defending the comment.
Matthews said that he made the comment because he has "traditional values" and loves his country. "I do have physical reactions when people are talking about my country," he added, noting that a news anchor like Tom Brokaw wouldn't have said it.
"Perhaps I shouldn't have said so because I've given a lot of jackasses the chance to talk about it," Matthews continued.
"And usually they say 'tingle' which says something about their orientation, but that's alright," he added. Later he interjected, "Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course. I have to throw that in."
