A Change is Gonna Come

Starting with respect for language and words.

Obama's Use of Complete Sentences Stirs Controversy 

Comic Andy Borowitz should be working for The Onion. I particularly like the last sentence, but I'll only throw you this little taster of the article:
Millions of Americans who watched Mr. Obama's appearance on CBS' "Sixty Minutes" on Sunday witnessed the president-elect's unorthodox verbal tick, which had Mr. Obama employing grammatically correct sentences virtually every time he opened his mouth.

But Mr. Obama's decision to use complete sentences in his public pronouncements carries with it certain risks, since after the last eight years many Americans may find his odd speaking style jarring.

Be sure to check out some of the other articles, such as "Bush in Race Against Time to Wreck Country ." Hilarious.

This definitely reminds me of 'Idiocracy'.
