Random, Post-Inaugural Thoughts

Bushes Obamas Some random musings on the day after....

That sea of humanity that crowded the national Mall yesterday left behind a sea of garbage. They want Obama to change the world, but they won't help by picking up their own trash?

Rahm Emmanuel was caught on camera blowing raspberries and making a "nah, nah, nah" gesture at someone yesterday. Gosh, I'm so glad to know a mature, dignified man like him is our new president's closest adviser. 

Supporters of Bush Derangement Syndrome were out in droves yesterday as they booed Bush, Cheney, and even their wives. (Profanity in comments at link.) Someone evidently forgot to teach them that we are supposed to respect the office even if we don't respect the person holding that office. As much as I disliked Clinton, I can't imagine being that rude. It was just more evidence that we're becoming a nation of crass, tasteless boors. 

I don't usually pay much attention to fashion, but I really liked Michelle Obama's dresses: the yellow one she wore for the Inauguration, and especially the white one she wore to the balls. She, the president, and their daughters are a beautiful family. 

I loved the black woman interviewed by one reporter yesterday who said, "My son will not have to be a basketball player or a rap singer.... Now, he can be president."   

What random musings have you been having?

The boo-ers (boors) saddened me.

Gina Dalfonzo

I'm saddened by the story of the lady who thought her son was destined to go into rap or basketball before the election of a black president. I understand the need for role models, but how could she possibly believe that her son's future depended on the ethnicity of the person in the White House? What a dangerous, morale-destroying way of thinking.
