Re: Barack Obama’s speech last night, Hardball’s Chris Matthews had this to gush:
I have to tell you, you know, 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. No, seriously. It’s a dramatic event. He speaks about America in a way that has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with the feeling we have about our country. And that is an objective assessment.
How soon will it be before he faints?
And in all seriousness, the better quote from yesterday re: Obamamania comes from John Derbyshire, who asked:
What are we electing here, a faith healer?
Amy Proctor made a pretty convincing case a few days ago that yes, indeed, in the eyes of the O-faithful, they are electing a “faith healer” of sorts.
Bonus coverage: What is Barack Obama’s idea of a “patriotic” corporation? Bryan at Hot Air explains.
Related reading: There’s an emerging discussion in the leftosphere about whether Senator Obama is ‘sufficiently bloodthirsty’ enough to take on America’s enemies abroad. And the WSJ asserts that Obama’s votes on wiretaps tells us quite a bit about the Senator’s national security creds – or, more to the point, lack thereof.
