Answer? Why "b" of course.
Once again, MSNBC's co-anchors, Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, showed why they were kicked off the election campaign reporting shtick last year. They are so openly biased that their only proper place is in opinion-oriented forums. Now that the election is over, they are back off their leashes.
Last night was just another in a long string of anecdotes involving these two pundits. After the speech by President Obama (who makes Matthews feel orgasmic sensations run up and down his leg-by his own admission), Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal gave the Republican response. As Jindal walked to the microphone, one of our two "professional" commentators (believed to be Matthews) was heard to mutter over the good old open mike, "Oh God!"
This is the same guy who in the 2006 elections, was heard to exclaim, "Yea!" when another Democratic election victory came over the wires.
Isn't MSNBC, in spite of its open bias, embarrassed when these two reporters act like cheerleaders and bleacher bums when reporting political events in venues where the public expects straight reporting?
