We’re not sure how much time Chris Matthews has been spending with the Obamas at home for him to claim that the president is the perfect father. At least he had the sense to stop at “American.”

[Obama’s] done everything right. He’s raised his family right. He’s fought his way all the way to the top of the Harvard Law Review, in a blind test becomes head of the Review, the top editor there. Everything he’s done is clean as a whistle. He’s never not only broken any law, he’s never done anything wrong. He’s the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American.

Matthews certain does get rolling now and then, and we imagine he dreams of a future in which Obama’s perfection isn’t limited by silly human constructs such as national boundaries. The perfect human being? Or is he something more than that? Stay tuned.



Yes, it actually happened.
