Obama’s speech

Cenk Uygur is playing parts of Obama’s speech last night, which he and Wes Clark, Jr., and presumably many other people find inspiring. To me it really does come across as ‘twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!’ And I mean that sincerely. However, it is rare to get a better speech than that in a similar circumstance.

There is one point where the speech was actually ‘bad’: when he suggested that in no other land could his Kenyan father and Kansan mother hook up. This is disgusting American chauvinism. He’d better lose that if he is going to change the world for the better.
