Chris Matthews Still Feels 'Thrill Up His Leg' When Obama Speaks (VIDEO)

On 'Hardball With Chris Matthews (Weekdays, 5PM ET on MSNBC) Tuesday, Matthews played a speech Obama made as a candidate for president. After hearing Obama's words, Matthews revisited a quote he famously made during the 2008 campaign, one that's often used as evidence that the media was in the bag for Obama during that election.

"I get the same thrill -- up my leg, all over me, every time I hear those words," Matthews gushed. "I'm sorry, ladies and gentleman, that's me."

Then, later in the segment, guest Jim Kessler made the mistake of referring to Matthews' famous thrill as a "tingle."

"It wasn't a tingle up my leg, that's what right-wing fascists say," Matthews said, sternly rebuking Kessler. "I got a thrill up my leg. You're reading the right-wing blogs."
