OMG, you've gotta see this. This is about as bad as some of the bad high school speech rounds I judged back in the day - the slow and smarmy tone seasoned by a certain amount of cluelessness, all smothered in a layer of obvious coaching, but not enough, there's never enough coaching for this kid.

He makes GWB sound like MLK.... OK, that's going overboard.

Who do you all think is a worse public speaker, McCain or Bush II?

I suffered an apoplectic fit every time he whined: "That's not 'change we can believe in.'"

He sounded like that one guy at every community meeting that cries on and on about the ineffectiveness of the government and the very group he's a part of without giving anything resembling a constructive solution. If he wants town hall meetings, let him have them. Obama may not have the illusion of candor and ease with which McCain has been attributed, but Obama displays a more resolute and passionate manner.
