Congratulations to National Review writer Charles C.W. Cooke for grabbing the MSNBC election night shot of the year.

Asked about how he feels about capturing the end of Matthews’ ridiculous leg tingle, Cooke told The Mirror, “Did I do that? I just saw that photograph on NRO and thought it was hilarious. Apparently, Twitter did too. I’m fascinated by Matthews. He’s completely off his trolley, but I can’t help but love him for his florid language and his infectious enthusiasm. In some regards, he’s the complete opposite of me. He finds certain politicians and turns them into messiahs; I hate pretty much everybody in public life. Still, If I met him in a bar, I imagine I’d be there until five o’clock in the morning and we’d end up being great friends until we both died of liver failure.”
