» Seems you cannot have a blog without doing an Obama day post. I think it’s a condition of my International Bloggers Union membership. I’d better keep a log of the proceedings.
All I have to say so far is "Holy hooptie that’s a lot of people."
Also, the announcer sounds like a Vegas fight announcer. I keep expecting him to say: "Get ready to ruuuuumbbbblllle!"
Seriously, that’s a lot of people. The folks on the other side of the river, I dare say would be better off watching it on TV. They got crap seats.
Bush looks really relieved to be retired. Obama looks impatient.
Holy crap. There’s a crazy-ass preacher spouting some religion now. That country has about as much separation of church and state as Iran.
I think Obama needs to pee.
This is the most hilarious reading of The Lords Prayer ever. They should have gotten Shatner.
Aretha Franklin! She’s still alive? I though she died last year. They re-animated Aretha Franklin for this? Now that’s power. She’s wearing truly the most ridiculous hat I’ve ever seen. It’s like a KGB version of Minnie Mouse’s bow. That’s no way to treat a zombie. Making them wear silly hats.
Now they’re going to swear in Biden. Sworn in. Quick and sweet.
More music. Sad music by John Williams. Obama has to crane his neck to watch Yo-Yo Ma.
So far no one has attempted to assassinate Obama. At least, not on camera.
The music just got happier. Jaunty even. Itzhak Perlman and Yo-Yo are having a throw-down string-shredding duel. Now the music is taking a heroic, epic quality. Ends oddly wistful.
It’s Obama’s turn. Oooh, he stumbles slightly. Apparently it was the Chief Justice’s fault. Obama’s probably going to have him killed after the show. Done and done. I suspect he’s about to make a speech. Yep, he’s making one. And he’s making crazy promises about using science to solve all of America’s problems. Well, why not? No one believes these speeches anyway. Wow, he just talked smack to the terrorists. He just called atheists "non-believers." Not very PC.
Finally. That was a long 18 minutes. Still no one has attempted to assassinate Obama. And that’s still a lot of people.
And now a poet? WTF? There’s more? I’m turning this off now. As I assume many people are. Let me know if somebody shoots Obama.
