The Inauguration (I)

Tuesday, January 20, 2009
I want to watch Obama's address a 2nd time and give it a good read before I comment on it in a systematic way. Until I have the opportunity to do so, I'd just like to give a few initial impressions :

1) It was nice to hear such a forceful repudiation of conservatism and such a positive case for liberalism. The words didn't appear, but they were there if you were listening.

2) Atheists and Agnostics are people too!

3) Goodbye to a very long 8 years

4) And the obvious "ZOMG we elected a black President!!!"

  • i was really upset for a bit by the alienation of being an atheist. why oh why he picked that moron to speak is more than i can tackle.

    but i'm so happy that he's here and the other one is gone. we toasted the kids tonight on new leadership, one with transparency, if nothing else.

    and i'm sending warm thoughts your way, both of you.
