I got chills, they’re multiplyin’.
And I’m losin’ control.
‘Cause the power you’re supplyin’,
it’s electrifyin’!

You’re the One That I Want

ABC’s Robin Roberts conducted the interview yesterday in which President Obama said he was coming out in favor of same sex marriage.

Here’s the latest example of an “objective” journalist coming dangerously close to infringing on Chris Matthews’ copyright:

“Boy do you know how to make a splash!” George Stephanopoulos joked with Robin Roberts as Thursday’s “Good Morning America” began.

It was rather an understatement; Roberts had just returned from what was undoubtedly the biggest moment of her career, after she was chosen personally by the White House to interview President Obama for his announcement that he now supports same-sex marriage. It’s not every day, after all, that political reporters are sending out minute-by-minute updates about the movements of morning news anchors.

Back at the “GMA” desk, Roberts reflected on the interview.

“I’m getting chills again,” she said. “When you’re sitting in that room and you hear him say those historic words, it was not lost on anyone that was in the room.”

That sounds a little familiar.

One upside to Obama’s run for re-election: If enough of these “reporters” get the chills maybe they won’t have to freak out about global warming anymore:

Here’s an artist’s rendering of Roberts during the Obama interview, where the chills were so intense that they caused her hope-induced tears of joy to freeze before hitting the ground.
