I’m beginning to think the MSNBCers have some kind of secret bet who can fawn the hardest over Obama on live TV.

Via NRO:

Not to be outdone by Chris Matthews, who said the president’s speech was downright Lincolnian, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell posited that, no, Obama’s address was actually more reminiscent of Martin Luther King, Jr. “I thought that the tone of this speech, aside from the policy prescriptions, was much more eloquent than I expected, frankly,” Mitchell said, “and in the mood of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the day that we’re celebrating and of that legacy.”
