More amazing political commentary... truly worth your time and inspiring.

***warning: Pro-Obama slant***
Yet another hero has arisen from the Youtube generation. We've gotten past the cat videos, past the Flash-pan flame of Australian Partiers, and moved onto the real stuff. This guy, Derek Ashong, is the 21st century american dream, and I will strive to be like him.

His response is incredible:

But even better, Derek later has his say on Youtube, bringing a whole new sublime level to the conversation.

Wow. Things are definitely happening. A sense of hope; non-partisan hope, genuine hope, intellectual hope, for the first time in this bittersweet american tango.

long live the internet generation.
