I am technically on vacation this week, so I’m sure all those poor suckers I’ve left behind are going to be furious that I posted this video while they were asleep, but, whatever: if you were not amazed and astounded by what Michelle Obama did in her speech tonight in Denver, I would prefer that you go read another site.
Anyway, as is customary in these parts, let me direct you to our September issue’s cover story on Michelle, which you can find here. But before you do, watch the speech again. Whatever happens in this election—and really, who the hell knows how things are going to turn out—just watch it again (or for the first time) and marvel at where, even given all the day-to-day bullshit, our country is at this moment. Let tomorrow be a time for those on the right to cavil about how she only mentioned the troops once or I didn’t hear anyone supplicating themselves at the feet of white power; let’s just take this moment to enjoy.
