nice one, barney. and how hilarious is the whole stadium chanting 'barney! barney! barney!'
i'm watching this on a slight dvr delay with Roomie and have to admit these 'voices of the people' are probably the best thing ever. i mean, the little latina woman who got an entire stadium of people to yell 'si, se puede'? awesome! and the pam lady who switched parties? loved how droll she was. other highlights: al gore and eisenhower's granddaughter.
(roomie has expressed love for dicky durbin. i've always thought of him as a smart little turtle. but i, too, must admit that durbin is a favorite of mine.)
my hopes for this speech: make it hard and make it aggressive and about policy and differentiation. go on the attack! punch them in the political groin!
and who called the voiceover for the obama video? i did! david strathairn! yes. these are the important things that roomie and i ponder while on the couch. if we had our own cable show, this is the quality of discourse you'd hear.
my heart just leapt a little when he accepted the nomination.
ok, he just 'addressed' HRC as an inspiration to his daughters and ours. enough to clear the bitterness? hm.
is he going after mccain? will he do a good a job as kerry in delineating himself from mccain? 'mccain doesn't get it.' is it strong enough?
'mccain won't even follow bin laden to the cave where he lives.' um, is that a snap?
the stuff about tactics and strategy worked for me. if the media doesn't get it, they're disingenuous and ass-hatty.
'it's not about me; it's about you.' nice and and easy target for the mccain camp.
'it is what is unseen' that keeps people coming to these shores - faith, people. faith in american promise.
nicely done. no political groin punch but now i feel bad for wanting one. see what you do to me, obama? you make me regret my violence!
