Ladies, gentlemen, and others . . . .
. . . we give you the forty-fourth President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama.
Ye gods is that man a good speaker.
I hauled my sorry self out of bed way before my usual hour just to watch the inauguration live. That’s how much I love our new President. (Heck, if I’d still been living in Indiana, I would have strongly considered driving to D.C. for the day — though hearing the weather report this morning made me kind of glad it was out of the question.) I have a couple of thoughts about the inauguration ceremony, but as I also have a dentist appointment this morning, for which I should get out the door, I’ll save them until later.
But yeah. Happy day.
