Four Score and Five Interruptions ago… *VIDEO


This post is so good, so wonderful, so American that I had to offer it up to you in part for your enjoyment until such time as you venture over to The Other McCain to read the rest for your own dear self.  First, watch the video:

Now read the excerpt:

Four score and five interruptions ago our zany uncle brought forth on this continent a new indignation, conceived in contempt for liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created to serve the state.

Now we are engaged in a soft civil war, testing whether that indignation, or any indignation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great debate-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a blog post for he who here gave 90 minutes of his life that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should blog this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave man, living not dead, who struggled here, has consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what he did here. 

Now go boldly forth and enjoy the rest by clicking ===> here
