All about “us”, or all about “me”?

The NYTimes Caucus blog compares the Obama Tuscon speech and Sarah Palin’s “blood libel speech” (previously).   The Guardian’s Datablog examines the text of each.  The New Yorker points out a very humble and personal difference between Obama’s words as written and words as spoken.  The usual suspects were not moved, choosing to grind axes, criticize t-shirts, refocus sympathy away from the victims, and lament applause.   If you want to see the Tuscon memorial service in its entirety for yourself, try C-SPAN, while Palin’s is on Vimeo.
