[Obama-ized] We're here in the City Weekly offices today, working. No yee-haw Pioneer Day holiday for us.
I was late getting in today. I'd like to say it was because I got stuck in Days of '47 Parade traffic, or was mesmerized by all those shiny while simultaneously kinda creepy floats.
I got caught up watching Barack Obama's speech to residents of Berlin. The candidate, on the campaign stump in Iraq and now in Europe, was masterful.
I wondered much earlier in the campaign season if Americans were so taken with Obama because, George W. Bush--with his horribly failed policies and his idiotic public persona--had set the bar so dismally low. Not any more. Read the Obama speech. It's meaningful.
