MSNBC’s resident queen Chris Matthews continues his shameless drooling obsession with the heterosexual Barack Obama. On MSNBC’s Today Show this morning, anchorwoman Ann Curry asked Matthews “where does Ted Kennedy fit in with the Kennedy brothers?” A simple enough question.

The ever fawning Matthews responded that Ted Kennedy, who died of brain cancer, “turned that torch over last year to Barack Obama. Barack’s now the last [Kennedy] brother.”

Never mind that Barack Obama had nothing to do with Curry’s question. Obama might need to take out a restraining order on Matthews, who once famously said he feels a “tingling sensation” down his leg whenever he thinks about Obama.
