10 Things Confirmed Tonite

  1. Barack Obama has perfect pitch.
  2. John McCain is very wrong. And out of touch. And completely fucking crazy...if he thinks he's going to win.
  3. I could so go gay for Rachel Maddow. I'm not exactly sure what that means other than painful surgery in my immediate future.
  4. Tweety showed multiple signs of being human.
  5. As much as I hate to admit it, Pat Buchanan did too.
  6. Michelles Obama and Bernard are so smart. Unbelievably hot-smart.
  7. They're easy on the eyes too.
  8. Keith Olberman is a great American.
  9. Charles Babington is most certainly not.*
  10. Jesse Jackson is again relevant to media types for the first time this decade.
*How this fool allegedly unbiased reporter can give a more vicious and patently false review of Sen. Obama's speech is beyond me. The only possible explanation is that somebody had just explained to him what those Rocky Mountain oysters were he ate earlier in the evening.

**Update: The McCain campaign's defense needs more work than my beloved New England Patriots:
"Tonight, Americans witnessed a misleading speech that was so fundamentally at odds with the meager record of Barack Obama," spokesman Tucker Bounds said. "When the temple comes down, the fireworks end, and the words are over, the facts remain: Senator Obama still has no record of bipartisanship, still opposes offshore drilling, still voted to raise taxes on those making just $42,000 per year, and still voted against funds for American troops in harm's way. The fact remains: Barack Obama is still not ready to be President."
Weak. Very, very Weak.
