Computer screen worth watching

Apropos of nothing in particular about lesbian parenting, and everything in general about the world I hope my kids will grow up into, Michelle Obama’s speech from Monday:

and this herstoric speech, from the Contender, last night:

both courtesy The New York Times.

The great benefit of the Times version is that it has a running transcript next to it.

Watched both with the kids on the lap this morning. They applauded whenever the crowd did, which was a lot. Little guy for the fun of it. I think his older sister, too.

When she asked who they were, I said, “Really smart women who may be President one day. Like you.”

  1. ooo..i like that answer. it’s pretty nifty to see such a world where a woman and a black man can both be serious contenders for the white house. makes me hopeful for the future where our children will grow.

  2. hmm…. wonder if you can youtube rachel maddow’s mad commentary. with a little less makeup and a bit more bravado, if you can imagine that. WOWEEE

  3. OMG, dude! I think, would be the appropriate response.

    “Hi Virgo! Thank you for being a fan of my work in the — media machine!” I heard her say it. Watched it in living video.
