speech reactions

I'm sure I'm not alone today in reading and watching various pundits and TV personalities' reactions to President Obama's inaugural speech yesterday. I've hesitated from posting about my own reaction, simply because I don't think I can offer anything as eloquent as what's out there already, and I'm not sure that I could find the words to do justice to the feelings of respect, pride and optimism that continue to course through me 24+ hours later.

I can however, show you a video that gives a pretty close approximation as to what I looked like during the speech, and at random times off and on throughout the day yesterday. If you haven't caught it yet, check out Stephen Colbert giving his speech evaluation.

I swear that those comedy central men absolutely slay me.
