Rebels Win! Empire Defeated! Vader Pissed Off About Wasting His Endorsement!

Well, not really that last one. If Cheney really gave a rat's patootie about McCain, he would have either endorsed him much earlier and more publicly, or shut the **** up.

Anyway, I don't want to be petty, not after that glorious speech. Just three moments I want to share with you:

  1. When McCain mentioned Obama, his crowd booed. When Obama mentioned McCain, his crowd applauded. Listlessly, true, but they were polite.
  2. McCain was interrupted by jingoist chants of "USA! USA!". Obama's crowd -- even before he started hammering the phrase in his speech -- kept affirming "Yes we can!"
  3. Jesse Jackson, in the crowd at Grant Park, with tears running down his face. From that hotel balcony in Memphis 1968...to this.
