Inaugural speech written by a 27 year old in Starbucks?!

So said the guardian uk. Here's the brain trust.

Guess the Prez is delegating tasks. And caffeine give you mad skillz!

(PS: blogger Stephanie checked out the above claim ... totally bogus; See her comment below. The guy in this pic is probably the shlub selling "Obama Body Oil" on Pennsylvania Avenue. Serious, Don Miller wrote it on twitter; all manner of kitsch was for sale.

Well let's not bring down the mood. My favorite line from the speech:
“We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.”

Written by a twit in Starbucks. Can't believe I fell for that. ...

On another note, Paste Magazine brings you, the ObamiconMe Poster generator! Generate your own Obama style poster. Here are a few.

The UK dude should dig a bit deeper before he sends his articles to his editor. I just a few minutes ago heard Doris Kearns Goodwin (who gave her opinion and help to Obama with this speech before he delivered it) that HE (Obama) wrote it.

I've never been prouder to be an American than I am today.
