Dear Charlie Gibson - No, I am NOT wondering what is going through Al Gore's head because I am confident it is utter nonsense as usual.
11:18 AM - Thank God someone is giving the senior Bushes a hand. Is it just me or were they left to flounder? And, BTW - that someone is Bill Clinton...WTF...
11:19 - Jimmy and Roz are up. No comment.
Now the senior Bushes...bless them...Babs looks good, so does George H.W., actually.
Here come the Clintons. And of course the crowd goes wild. If you look closely, you'll see the special detail assigned to clean up the trail of slime they leave behind them...
Gah. I need a beer. Charlie Gibson is rambling on about the moving trucks at the White House.
11:25 - The Obama girls look beautiful. They seem very excited, God bless them.
Aretha - WTF is on your head?
Oh, God SHUT UP Diane. "My Country tis of Thee will be sung in a new way for African-Americans". Why? Was it not their country before? I hate the MSM. EDIT: apprently she was paraphrasing MLK. Guess that makes it okay. (rolls eyes).
11:28 - I love Laura Bush "Hey everybody. How are you all?" Adorable!
The adoring masses are chanting for the One. Thought I heard "no more Bush" but the cameras cut away (shockingly). Those Obama supporters - all class.
11:31 - Michelle Obama looks good. Very classy, but no more so than any other political wife.
Charlie is now spouting some bullshit about the Declaration of Independence "As I said on election night...all men are created equal...and now this is a giant step forward". What an asswipe...no time to go into detail on the douchebaggery of this statement...I beleive it is "self-evident"
11:38 - The President looks GREAT - confident and relaxed. Love you Dubya!
11:39 - Here comes that fucking clown Biden. He's probably ready to wet his pants, he just cannot believe he actually made it.
And here's the One - looking appropriately solemn, I must say. You know, I might actually cheer the historic significance of this moment if that weren't the only thing it was about.
I might have to mute Charlie Gibson. Or kick him in the ass, either one.
Well, I gotta go do some laundry. Might be back.
11:49 - Pastor Rick Warren - meh. Peaceful transition, African-American president, blah blah blah, MLK, asking for blessings on Obie, Biden, etc...
That was cute...girl in the crowd just realized she was on the jumbotron...cute reaction...I love people!
Had to pause for a minute to say the Lord's prayer with Pastor Rick. That part I liked.
Muting Aretha. Smoke break.
So there you go. America is a big girl now.
Joking aside, that was cute. He looks good, Michelle looked good.
Oh, here's the speech.
Humbled, mindful, grateful...mm hmm...thanks G.W., good, he should. That man went through hell for this country.
Whoa...he mentioned the war...and failure to make hard choices re:the economy (dear congress...)...
We have chosen hope over fear...um, is that just political B.S. or does it meeeaaan something?
I've always believed that all are free to pursue the opportunities of this country...and I do mean ALL.
Pleasures of riches and fame...hellloooo Hollywood...this means you, dummies...
This is a nice speech. I guess I'm not moved because I didn't vote for him, nor do I believe him to be capable of delivering...but the kool-aid drinkers seem pretty into it, based on crowd reactions.
Me! Me! I question the scale of your ambitions! And, no, my memory is not short.
Okay, here comes the socialist stuff. Gotta run...Wee Jack just woke up, obviously he senses a great disturbance in the force.
Back...okay, enough with the father stuff...what about your mom???
He is a good speaker, I will give him that. And good looking too. Yea, I said it.
12:39 - OMG, I swear Michelle Obama just checked her palm for the words to the National Anthem...
Michelle Malkin blogs the inauguration.
