As Twitchy reported, some of the lapdog talking heads were at throwing briefs on stage level in their junior high school gushing over Bill Clinton’s address to the DNC last night. Rick Klein wasn’t the only one. Suzanne Malveaux breathlessly tweeted lines from Clinton’s speech and then gushed about a bromantic “passing of the torch.” You know, more than a decade later.
Obama surprises audience and appears on stage with Clinton. Clinton bows to Obama, and they embrace. The passing of the torch. #DNC2012

The usual lapdog suspects were over the top as well. Chris Matthews was all tingling, natch. Only, even more creepily than usual.

Somewhere, Chris Matthews is wondering when he will get to hump Clinton's leg on his show.

"I always figured that if Bill Clinton landed on Mars. He would know how to do it with them. He would know how to reproduce” – Chis Matthews

I couldn't hear Clinton's speech. Tried to watch it on MSNBC and hard to hear it over the sound of Chris Matthews leg tingling.

No one explains things more plainly or radiates more charisma than a fired-up Bill Clinton. MSNBC pundits are falling over themselves.

Tour de force!
Even CBS’s White House correspondent, Mark Knoller, noticed. And rightly called it out as over the top, while addressing the key point of Clinton’s address.
Striking how much Pres Clinton clearly loved being back in the national political spotlight.

These Twitter users agree and also call out the media for their drooling sycophancy.

Talking heads gushing over Clinton? Now there's a man-bites-dog story.
— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) September 6, 2012
It has. RT @markknoller: No question Bill Clinton is a masterful politician, but gushing over his speech hits over the top proportions.

Ugh. Members of the media need drool buckets and we need hurl buckets.
