A breath of fresh air

When was the last time a US President stood before Congress and talked with such captivating eloquence, reason and idealism grounded in reality for 52 minutes? How effortlessly, elegantly and modestly the words flowed. This could well have been a State of the Union address.

It truly felt like tinkling music to my ears. It was like listening to a perfectly rendered version of Mozart's "Linz" after 8 years of constantly listening to a badly mangled Marilyn Manson album while being incarcerated in a dark box. It was like going to the world's most luxurious and pristine spa and cleansing your system with nectar after 8 years of living in the gutter and eating lard. The English language was finally resurrected yesterday in Congress.

Now let's just hope he can walk the talk.

Come on now, what's wrong with a Marilyn Manson album?

That's why I said "badly mangled" ;)

It seems Matt Welch wasn't as enamoured by the speech as you were.
