Obama, the narcissist.

According to Andrew Malcolm:

Exactly 10 years and one day after victoriously claiming the Massachusetts governor's office, for which he took no salary, Romney in 703 words graciously admitted his loss. He said the word "America" five times, the word "pray" three times and the words "Thank you" 21 times.

The Real Good Talker, who's never seen anything he couldn't throw a speech at, took 2,163 words to claim victory in what is traditionally a moment to call for unity and healing after a divisive campaign.

The victorious Chicagoan, who promised before the last election to end Washington's partisan bitterness, strangely uttered the word "fight" five times and "thank you" but seven times. He spoke the word "unify" zero times, "unity" zero times, "heal" zero times and "pray" zero times.

He did, however, manage to mention himself 27 times.

And, now, that the Lightbringer has been affirmed, he will deign to play another round of golf.

We lost a fine man in Romney. I hope he sticks with us in the next four years--we'll need him.
