It's Moments Like These You Cherish

(This isn't really about politics....)

I just love this picture from Obama's health-care speech last night. What were these guys talking about?

I like to think that Al Franken just made a really obscene joke about Harry Reid's wife. It's the romantic in me, I suppose.

Obama's Big School Speech

You know - the speech that enraged right-thinking parents around the country with the prospect of a socialist outlook being foisted by the President on their helpless children.

Well, doesn't fairness demand that the Republicans be allowed to broadcast a rebuttal?

Obama: "Every single one of you has something to offer."

Republican response: "Every single one of you has something to offer. Except you, Billy. You got nuthin'."

Obama: "And no matter what you want to do with your life - I guarantee that you'll need an education to do it."

Republican response: "Education is for suckers. Look where I am - and I didn't need no stinkin' education."

Obama: "Young people like Jazmin Perez, from Roma, Texas. Jazmin didn’t speak English when she first started school. Hardly anyone in her hometown went to college, and neither of her parents had gone either. But she worked hard, earned good grades, got a scholarship to Brown University, and is now in graduate school, studying public health, on her way to being Dr. Jazmin Perez."

Republican response: "Jazmin Perez is not from Roma, Texas. I have here a copy of her actual Kenyan birth certificate."

Now that's a speech I would enjoy listening to.
