W’s Invisible Farewell

When W gave his farewell speech a few days ago I was out and about doing other things, so I did not see it live. As I started catching up on my Google Reader backlog after my mom left, I figured I’d find it embedded on dozens of different feeds I read. In fact, now that I’ve caught up, I know there were a number that quoted the transcript, in part or in full, there were a few that commented on it (most in passing, noting how nobody cared or just a few stray thoughts about it), but nobody embedded the video, not even on the right wing blogs I read. I’m sure there are other places that did embed it, just not any of the places I monitor. And that surprised me a bit, although I guess it is an indication of just how much people are anxious to just get on with things and stop thinking about the past.

Of course, just a couple of seconds on Google found it, so here it is:

Hmmm. After watching it, it probably got just about the right amount of attention. It is pretty unmemorable.
