I know, I know, the worst photoshopped picture EVER but hey, I tried. This picture is pretty much what Barack Obama's speech felt like last night. He pretty much got into the arses of the Republican party with a right hook reminiscent of the one Muhammed Ali put on George Foreman in "The Rumble in the Jungle." I don't think folks thought Obama had it in him.

Barack had an intelligent rebuttal to each and every question (no matter how stupid) that the Republicans have raised about himself and the Democratic party over the last few months. And he did all this without even breaking a sweat or showing any real sign of pisstivity. He was as cool as a fan, straightforward, and even called out names. Was this Malcolm X or Barack Obama?

All week, the pundits have been talking about where's the red meat in this convention? Why aren't the speakers ripping John McSame and the Republican party....blah blah blah. Now they know why, Barack was keeping that job all to himself. My favorite line of the night:

"John McCain likes to say that he'll follow bin Laden to the Gates of Hell - but he won't even go to the cave where he lives."

Can we say Classic!! I bet even bin Laden was in his cave laughing manically at that one.

Click below to watch the brilliant speech that Barack orated last night as well as a list the LA Times put together with this weeks best one liners.
