Say Amen. search isn’t working too well at http://whitehouse.gov Speech text: http://tinyurl.com/9wlgax This may be the greatest speech ever given about the United States. “We are willing to extend a hand if you will unclench your fist.” What is this form of homiletics called? “This, then that…” “the lines of tribe will soon dissolve…” whoa. “We reject as false the distinction between our safety and our ideals.” Another great one-liner. “the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply.” Well put. Hope it’s even partly true. World’s greatest orator flubs the oath. O well. It’s cool. Roberts didn’t look like a teleprompter, I guess.

Not sure if that beats blogging it, but it sure was easier.
And I’m still glowing, three hours later.
