    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

    Probably the most striking:

    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.
