Old news, but I keep thinking about it, so I thought I'd mention it: George Lakoff provided some remarks (http://www.kpfa.org/archive/id/58260) on Barack Obama's Q&A with the Republicans (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvwEjxDtwWs), which I linked to a while ago (http://alexandra-thorn.dreamwidth.org/7208.html). If you get a chance to listen, I'd be curious as to what your thoughts are on Lakoff's interpretation of Obama's rhetoric (and its failures).

Edit: Lakoff is introduced right about at the 7 minute mark of the Letters to Washington mp3.
