Obama's speech:
Tough Times.
Our Ancestors Lived Through Worse.
Utterly sloppy equation of communism with fascism - McCarthy would be proud.
Land Of Hope And Glory.
Think Big.
Yes We Can.

Alexander's poem:
Lame to the nth degree.
Instantly forgettable.

Rick Warren:
Weird little goatee beard may go down at Saddleback church, but did you miss the "20th January: Shave" memo?
And what did Sasha Obama do to warrant that creepy sibilant vehemence on her name? Spill her drink on you backstage?

Moment of beauty:

Anthony McGill on clarinet. I'd have given him all three slots above too.
