This from National Review Online’ s Jim Geraghty:
‘There comes a time when we heed a certain call.’
There was not a ton to object to, and indeed a lot to like, in Obama’s speech in Berlin. Although I think I preferred it the first time I heard it, when it was sung by all those celebrities and rock stars back in the mid-80s.
Oh, wait, that was “We Are The World.”
Geraghty goes on to issue a pop quiz to readers: “Pick out the “We Are The World” lyrics vs. Obama speech lines.”
Take the quiz here. It’s actually harder than you’d think…Megan Garber is an assistant editor at the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard University. She was formerly a CJR staff writer.
