Lordy, talk about a man in love with his own voice.
Keith Olbermann reported Mr. Obama wouldn’t be using a teleprompter tonight.
Word of the night:
1. Often or habitually roaming; wandering.
2. Extended over an irregular area; sprawling: a large rambling country
3. Lengthy and digressive: a rambling speech.
John McCain is the worst speaker ever, though he is getting better (he had nowhere to go but up). But he gets the
quote of the night:
“… I will fight every moment of every day in this campaign to make
sure Americans are not deceived by an eloquent but empty call for change that
promises no more than a holiday from history and a return to the false promises
and failed policies of a tired philosophy that trusts in government more than
people. … ..”
McCain’s speech was geared towards the general election. He still has to figure out how to backtrack from the 100 years in Iraq nonsense. No one is going to buy that one.
But it was Obama’s night and he didn’t miss a trick after a huge win in Wisconsin, which also
showed Obama eating into Clinton’s core voters. Then he knocked Clinton off
the air, ignoring proper ettiquette, with the cable networks covering his rambling,
incessitant, never ending, long winded, laundry list, expenditure packed, pandering
pontification until it finally, at long last, after minutes and minutes and
minutes of going on and on and on, ended. To the winner goes the tv coverage.
He earned it. I just wish he hadn’t punished those of us watching it with such
a stinker (though I confess to muting him half way through).
Bottom line: Clinton’s job just got tougher.
