Editorial in the Times

"The cheek of every American must tingle with shame as he reads the silly, flat and dishwatery utterances of the man who has to be pointed out to intelligent foreigners as the President of the United States."
Chicago Times editorial - in response to Lincoln's Gettysburg Address (1863)

In my convalescence, I've watched President Bush (and others) speak on C-Span. Then I watch the news channels (Fox, CNN, MSNBC).

One of these things is not like the others.
