Obama Oval Office address: Not so much blah blah blah as glug glug glug
Something must have been wrong with my TV during President Obama's first Oval Office Address to the nation about the oil spill. I could hear him but I couldn't see him very well. Something black and viscous and eerily iridescent was spreading across the screen from bottom to top, obscuring the president. Big, huge ugly bubbles of toxic glop. And you know how when you stare at something long enough, it seems to reverse direction? After awhile, it no longer seemed that the bubbles were rising, but rather that Obama was sinking into the very oil spill that threatens to engulf his administration if he can't get ahead of the crisis and start offering real leadership instead of PR and reassuring platitudes. I could almost hear the oil go glug glug glug as he sank deeper and deeper.
