Scoring the speeches

In a word:

Obama: Wow
Jindal: Ow

I don't suppose anyone could have rebutted Obama's speech and sounded inspirational but watching Jindal was just painful. I see the GOP's future and it looks like a wasteland from here.

And what a relief to have a president I can listen to again without wanting to commit acts of violence to my teevee screen. It's so refreshing to have a leader who speaks like a mature adult. I'd almost forgotten how that feels. I like it.

That was the culmination of a month-long struggle between the Geriatric Obstructionist Putzes and Obama. They looked WHIPPED last night, and the public agrees.

Can we quit calling the corporate talking heads "mainstream media" now? How much farther from the actual mainstream of American life could they possibly be?

The GOPers looked like they had died and were zombifying before my eyes last night. I kept imagining a collective cartoon bubble around their heads saying "Oh Shit. We're screwed." every time the applause started.

Yeah. Every last one of them is like your weird, racist, embarrassing uncle or cousin who only shows up for free meals at family occasions and makes everybody want to leave early. Or the loud drunk at the end of the bar that has no place else to go, so the bartender lets him rave on about commies and "f*gg*ts" until he leaves with one.

I think the general public might really be over them for good, if Obama & Co. don't f**k up. Gawd help us if they do: The storm-troopers are already gathered in the woods of West Virginia in their tin-foil armor, ready to march on Warshenden DEE-cee and link up with their media counterparts.

Please, Gawd, leave us the f**k ALONE for the next sixteen years! We PROMISE we won't go to church and bother you! Swear to, well, we promise.

Still, I have this feeling like I had after the fall of the Berlin Wall, like, the war is over, we won! That terrible mushroom cloud that hung over all of our heads for forty years is gone! Now we can have a peace dividend, and better yet, peace! Like, the house fell on the witch. The Repukelickin's are m-e-l-t-i-i-i-n-g. We can turn all the money and influence, power and talent, energy and good intentions toward better things, and make a better world. Only this time, we won't give them time to come up with a new boogieman to sabotage our golden age.

Ah, you know, it's just a feeling...

I'm big believer in the power of visualization Cosa. I think I'll imagine that to be true.
