Do-over!

Re-administration of the oath of office

I know reporters are supposed to be unbiased, but I love the line 

“After flubbing his one role on Inauguration Day — administering the oath of office to Obama — Roberts traveled to the White House to re-administer the oath.”

At least they’re sure now

Inauguration fever

Although I am in Paris, I had a wonderful inauguration evening.  I watched it in a crowded Canadian bar full of American students.  It was the quietest I’ve ever heard a crowded bar.

The oath upset me, I already don’t like Justice Roberts, why couldn’t he get it right?  This is one GOOD thing he might do in his career and he flubbed it.

I thought the speech was good, but not as moving as some of his others.

Here’s my post-mortem

Did Obama really sport a bullet-resistant suit? (that was the article I got to following links from other websites, I have no idea if it’s true or not)

The speech Obama gave Sunday at the Lincoln Memorial was also a good one…

My favorite moment (which was actually after the fact):

The first couple’s first dance to Beyonce’s cover of “At Last” (which was really quite good).  I know it’s more of a love song, but I like the double meaning and how happy they look dancing. 

All in all, as exciting as it would have been to be in Washington, I wouldn’t’ve gone down to the Mall, it was waaaay too cold and crowded.  I mean, traffic jams at 5 am?  There’s a much better view from the TV…

Ding dong the witch is dead

Cheney moves boxes?  Somehow I think THIS is more likely the sort of thing that hurt his back…

I wish I could be there…

but then again maybe not….  Do you see the 5:21 am time stamp?
