Amusing insight into how people’s minds work differently:
The most telling (and inspiring) moment of Obama’s speech was when he pointed out how far we have come in the last 100 years. I am sick and tired of being told this is the way we’ve “always” done things here. America is too fucking young to have “always” done anything. We’ve been changing since people first set foot on our WEST coast, and it’s an amazing, wonderful moment to finally have a president who not only remembers it, but wants us to remember it, too.
Of COURSE we can.
… I think the real news story, not likely to be mentioned, is that Amy Poehler pretty much kicks ass for doing that skit while THAT pregnant. I know I don’t watch much TV, but I think this is possibly the most active I have seen a visibly pregnant woman on television, ever. It’s nice to see that standards are changing and that it is, apparently, now okay to acknowledge that pregnancy is not the equivalent of a 9 month bed sentance.
Also, Palin’s part was pretty lame. That’s the best they could come up with?
is my hero.
look at that, it’s a man with courage.
