mr. obama finally goes to washington

its interesting watching the president these days
finally free of the burdens of having to be reelected
he can really speak truth (and power) to power.

and yet despite the second half of this speech being the first volley
into gun control reform
he never says the word gun.

maybe thats how youve gotta do it.
gently.

maybe thats how you boil a frog:
slowly.

these next four years are going to be interesting.
