About that invocation...


...Perhaps a bit much?

I hate to be a wet blanket, but asking the crowd to pray that they can follow Obama and create the Kingdom of God on earth seems excessive. So does putting an explicitly Christian gloss on the proceedings.

Also, as an aside, the retrospective-video thing currently underway at Grant Park looks an awful lot like what I remember from Deval Patrick's victory celebration in '06. Somehow, it doesn't seem to work as well on TV. 

Again, sorry to be crusty on a very exciting night. But the protracted pageantry is dulling my considerable enthusiasm.
