Interesting Inauguration Day

I spent the Inauguration at my parent's house. My mother had Fox News on (of course. There is no other news network to watch.) She kept trying to bait me into an argument, and I refused and just kept knitting my hat. The whole thing made her agitated, but she just kept watching because "It's her president too" and she's "not going to talk about him the way people talked about Bush" while she made disparaging comments and observations about him, the crowd, etc.

Anyway, Fox News had some interesting things to say. Like how Obama's speech was full of "fear-mongering that got him elected". They gushed about how wonderful and graceful and amazing the Bush's are. They also said because John Roberts screwed up the swearing-in, and it's documented in the Constitution what he is supposed to say, maybe Obama isn't officially president.


Anyway, did you catch The Daily Show last night? Did you catch the "Moment of Zen"? I couldn't find a clip of it, but this pretty well sums it up:

The Year is One.

I watched the whole thing on C-Span, so that I didn't have to listen to any reporters/commentators/etc. It was much more enjoyable that way. Then Lynne came home and we snarked at the bands. :)

Did you see that Obama re-took the oath of office? Egads
