+1 on both counts.
To Russell's "be fair" --- I'm also coming to the conclusion that
Obama's intelligence and eloquence are over-hyped. Consider this
which he said at a Memorial Day ceremony at Las Cruces, NM:
"On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of
fallen heroes -- and I see
many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism
is particularly strong."
Now he's clearly not even in the same rhetorical league as the
gibbering fucktard that's been in the White House the last 8 years,
but really. Sees-dead-people?
And yes, that's actually a quote, I heard the sound bite. If
anything, the gaffe sounds worse than it reads.
