Just mesmerized by Obama’s tour de force eulogy in South Carolina. Words can’t really do it justice, which you know if you were watching the live speech and Twitter simultaneously.

I don’t know if it was the history-making of this week — gay marriage and health care for all — or the history-remaking of this week — the lowering of Confederate flags — that made us primed for such a speech. But from the tragedy in South Carolina came his most resounding speech, his most uninhibited confrontation of race in America, and his most uninhibited self-expression on the public stage.

You can — and should — watch the whole thing here.
