    Thought I'd toss this out there - am I the only one who is seeing parallels between McCain's acceptance speech and Kennedy's inaugural address?

    Text of McCain's speech
    Text of Kennedy's inaugural address

    Speeches, like most things, use many borrowed concepts from people formerly in our position and from role-models. I don't think these are so striking that I'd declare "plagiarism!" but I think this is just a case of a similar thought process and the convenience of such an influence (Kennedy's speech) coming together.

    And damn. I thought this was going to be like a techno remix of a McCain speech...kind of like Bill O'Reilly.
