    It's a heckuva bit of whiplash, and I'm wondering if Jed's suspicion that the President read Coates' NYTimes article is in fact spot-on.  

    Whatever the reason, I hope the President who shows up today trumps the one who quasi-endorsed Ray Kelly, because this was one hell of a speech.  Normally when politicians take on powderkeg issues (well, normally they avoid them completely) they paper over them with a few platitudes - god, country, family, the end.  He went directly into the issues and addressed them, and it was pretty fantastic.
