Some interesting news and views about the Baracktastic Husseineriffic Obamapalooza tomorrow:
- Katty Kay says, c’mon, America: leave the royalism to the pros, in “The Coronation of King Obama.”
- Via Feminist Law Professors, Patricia Williams says that the mass enthusiasm about Obama’s inauguration is due to giddiness that the reign of Mr. Worst President Ever is almost over, and cautions Obama and the rest of us not to let Emperor C+ Augustus off the hook so easily in “Drowning Our Sorrows, Lifting a Glass.”
- TalkLeft posted a link to the menu for tomorrow’s traditional luncheon, and all of the recipes. Yummy! (But…canned cherries? Really?)
- Rock-solid evidence that Joe Biden knows he’s got the booby prize. (Please grow up, Biden family. This is just embarrassing, and no one believes you.)
I’m not teaching tomorrow, so I’ll have it parked in front of the set for the inauguration ceremony and the big speech. I’ve watched every inauguration since Ronald Reagan’s second in 1985, with the exception of George W. Bush’s second inauguration in 2005. It’s good to want to turn on the teevee again, isn’t it?
As of Tuesday afternoon–can everyone just get back to work already? I mean, it’s not like the dudes in Washington don’t have a lot on their plates, aside from phesant and duck with the sour cherry chutney, right?
