Politics, popular culture, pastries
You are not wrong. That was an amazing and important speech. Brian cried. (Don't tell him I told you that.)
This is a parochial response, but I hope one of the long term effects of the speech is that pundits shut up. I read somebody yesterday, forget whom, who argued that this was one of the first times in decades that a politician effectively resisted the media's ability to lower the debate. Obama's a better writer than most of the journalists covering him, so they sorta have to shut up, because they can't match him rhetorically. I read it as a giant fuck you to the Chris Matthews sort of dialogue, and hopefully it humbled those jerks just a little. Let's see if that sticks.
