Holy crap

Randi Rhodes just likened Barack Obama’s Iowa victory speech to those speeches Al Gore is now known for.

Holy crap. Obama’s speech was practically information-free, and she likens it to those laser-like, content-rich speeches of Al Gore. And she says Obama speaking gives her the same prickly feeling as Gore speaking.

Obama knows where her happy buttons are, and she has no training in resistance. Obama’s speech makes me feel ‘nothing’, which is what people ought to feel when spoken to in that way. It’s as if your spouse told you ‘I see love before me as a shining beacon’ instead of ‘I love you’. Al Gore’s speeches of the last few years, by contrast, I have liked very much, and they are beyond admirable. They are of a different type, not just a different degree.
