I wasn’t as blown away by Michelle Obama’s speech last night as many were. Maybe it was all the hype, maybe it was hearing all the talking points before. She did a solid job. Got a little Eva Peronish, but hit all the central campaign themes and really seemed to connect with the audience.Â
The AWESOME moment came at the end. Barack comes in via satellite and says hi from the home of some voters. Malia and Sasha get on stage and it’s all scripted sappy. There’s a delay in the feed, and Barack fumbles for a minute and says “hi from St. Louis” before correcting to “here in Kansas City.” He gives a shoutout to Michelle, introduces the SelectedÂ Voters and rides out the applause.Â
Sasha has the microphone. She’s like, 6. She’s on stage at the DNC.Â
“Daddy, what city are you in?”
You can’t see her face, but I’m an older brother. I could draw the look blind.
