Ok, I know this is trivial, but since we're going to have to spend the next 4-8 years hearing people gush about Obama's eloquence and overall speechy goodness, can his writers at least teach him the meaning of the word "enormity"?

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
