Apollo 4 on column of fire

Obama's speech

Workmanlike. Kind of like Abe Lincoln sandwiched between Bill Clinton and E plabnista. One doesn’t expect much of victory speeches, however; they are basically glorified champagne toasts.
Apollo 4 on column of fire

Bojo calls it for Friedman

Brad Friedman wins, Greg Palast loses.

People who follow the vote-stealing topic may understand what I mean. Friedman represents ‘Yes, there is a whole lot of vote-stealing going on; it makes things harder, so go out there and vote!’ Palast represents ‘They are going to steal another one!!!!!! To have any chance at all you must take five paces forwards, fall back three small steps, shimmy for five seconds, shoulder roll to your right, do a break dance, then somersault backwards to dunk your ballot in the ballot box, or it won’t be counted!!!!!!!!!

Shorter version: Friedman = ‘Go vote!’, Palast = ‘Your vote won’t be counted!’ And the latter sounds like he’s having fun when he says it, but maybe that’s just his style.
