Perhaps the best line from Barack Obama’s Hardball appearance yesterday came after (the notoriously Obamaphilic) Chris Matthews asked the candidate a very Chris Matthews-esque question:
“At any time in this campaign, did you have a chuckle that you just couldn’t get rid of, something weird that happened, it was so crazy that you just went to bed laughing about it?”
“Well, I think that that happens once a day,” Obama deadpanned. “…But then I stopped watching cable news.”
Hand-that-feeds-you, consider yourself bit! Thrilled leg, consider yourself pulled!
Watch the video here; the line comes about seven-and-a-half minutes into the segment.
