*shivers as 75,000 people chant "Yes We Can"

*"He had a childhood like any other" Is that so? I don't remember living in Indonesia.

*I already saw most of this pre-film I've already seen on "Obama Revealed" on CNN International. Most of this I've already read in "Dreams of My Father".

*all ready a bit of tears and his only just said "I accept your nomination".

*dude, the whole 'they want you to pull you up by your bootstraps even if you don't have any boots' line was killer

*fantastic soundbites are just rolling in

*whenever he says "you" he's looking right at me! He means me! He's calling me a patriot! He thinks that this election is about me!

*I dislike it when he whistles his s's

*I like when his voice gets all trembly.

*COUNTRY?!?!?!?! panderer

And the loser is ...

I was listening to my Bugle podcast and John Oliver said how strange it was to watch the Olympics in America. Ivo found this to be true as well, but that was because of all of the advertisements. For John Oliver, the strangeness is because all of the medals the Americans win. This week, I found it crazy uncomfortable to watch the interviews with the Swiss atheletes who have lost. It's so depressing. They're on the verge of tears and trying their best to speak High German in the emotionally-charged environment (let's face it, most Swiss atheletes are Romand).
