Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s Hardball can get a little too excited over President Obama sometimes.  Tonight’s State of the Union was obviously one of those times.

“…I was trying to think about who he was tonight. And, it’s interesting he is post-racial, by all appearances. You know I forgot he was black tonight for an hour. You know he’s gone a long way to become a leader of this country, and passed so much history in just a year a year or two. It’s something we don’t even think about. I was watching, I say, wait a minute, he’s an African-American guy in front of a bunch of other white people. And here he is President of the United States, and we’ve completely forgotten that tonight.”

Hey Harry – got an extra dunce cap for Chris?
