Two-Minute Nostalgia Sublime

Morgan Freeman addresses the nation as President Beck in Deep Impact:

When this movie came out 10 years ago, I wondered how long it might be before we actually had a black president. Last night, while I watched Obama hand McCain his ass up, down, sideways, and backwards, I recalled that bit of progress promised by pop culture and got a face-cracking grin as I considered that real life may be just about to catch up.

I probably wouldn't have had quite the same reaction if I'd been looking at Alan Keyes, but there you go.
