Rhetoric

On Auntie Beeb (BBC Radio 4) this morning, there were some sniffy comments about how Obama’s speech did not rise to the soaring level of Lincoln or Churchill.  For me, the whole thing left me in tears of joy and relief that our 8-year national nightmare might be over.  For them, here is a quote from that ever-prescient ex-Brit, John Lennon:

I'm sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, shortsighted, narrow-minded hypocrites
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth

I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth
