I don’t know you, but I was tearing up last night during the speech!

I don’t know about any of you, but I was tearing up last night during the speech; I don’t know if I’ve ever been more proud to be an American. Of course, I wasn’t watching the DNC – I was streaming “Tommy Boy” via Netflix!!! 😉

But MAN! That speech that Chris Farley as Tommy Callahan, Jr. gives at the end of the movie… whew! You know, the dénouement: Tommy and Richard have saved the company and everyone is now back from Chicago, the scene is a loading dock at the Callahan Auto plant and Frank Rittenhauer introduces Tommy as the “new C.E.O.” of the company. Tommy, a bit nervous, reminisces a bit and then says:

Anyway, I just want you to know that as long as I’m around, I’m gonna bust my butt to make sure that every last one of you always has a job, right here at ‘Callahan’.

Tears… Proud American moment…

Ah, if only Obamney or Rombama could make me feel that way!
