Obama Speechifying, Summarized

Will Wilkinson liveblogged the inauguration proceedings, and his running summaries of Obama's speech had me laughing my a$$ off. My favorite parts:

12:14: A new foundation for growth. Restore SCIENCE. Harness the sun and the tides and hamsters. Some question the scale of our ambitions. They simply forget that we can DO ANYTHING. All your objections no longer apply, so don’t try to object cynics.


12:18: Basically, all dichotomies are false. Freedom AND security. Free markets AND big government. America is everyone’s friend. Facebook us Kenya!
