MSNBC’s ‘President of the World’

And no, it’s not the one that probably popped into your head first. The thrill up Chris Matthews’ leg has developed a wandering eye:

With a script and a dramatic voice over befitting a trailer for the latest superhero movie out of Hollywood, one of the first promos for Chris Matthews’ documentary on Bill Clinton has begun airing on MSNBC. The ad begins with an announcer teasing viewers, “His presidency was over, his mission just beginning” and then goes on to tell the story of a post-presidential Clinton achieving universal adulation complete with shots of adoring crowds and accolades from the likes of Tony Blair and of course Matthews, who shrieks like a fan boy: “You’re like a one man Peace Corps!”

Even the Academy Award winning actor Kevin Spacey shows up, narrating a scene he was once witness to: “And they were yelling ‘Peacemaker! Peacemaker!'”

Wasn’t President Obama supposed to be “all of the above”? How quickly they lose faith.

MSNBC’s going for the world record for fawning currently co-held by the producers of Bambi and Diane Sawyer’s coverage of Obama’s inauguration.
