Obama in Germany
Ich liebe dich!
Look at the size of that crowd!
Barack Obama's speech in Germany today was as close to perfection as a speech can get.
Imagine a crowd of more than 200,000 Germans, waving American flags and listening raptly to an American political hopeful.
Oh, it's good to feel liked again.
Oh, I'm so pleased that Obama has the sense to know that someone has to clean up the global messes that fucking imbecile George W. Bush and his ham-handed administration have made.
Oh, it was good to see a smiling Angela Merkel standing next to Obama instead of a cringing Angela Merkel trying to get that oafish Bush to stop massaging her shoulders.
Yeah, I have done my share of doubting Obama's bona fides and fretting about his electability, but if this is how he plans to represent us on the global front, I am impressed.
If this is how he comports himself on the global stage, I am impressed.
