I have a dream- Thunderstorms in Denver starting now.

BTW, I can’t decide, will he come out to “Like A Prayer” sporting a stigmata, or trident and olive leaves?

[quote comment=”102161″]This is pretty good confirmation of the First Law of H411: “Put ‘Obama’ in a story title and comments will degrade into partisan douchebaggery in four comments or less.”[/quote]

See you somewhere else!

I’ll be watching the speech, but I am not paying for it.

If he wins, I’ll be paying an extra thousand bucks a month in taxes (maybe a lot more).
