It’s a new day

The helicopter
flies Dubya far away
and the crowd goes wild

I thought about live-blogging Obama's speech and all of the pomp and the talking heads. But the emotion was too much for me. I selfishly didn't want anything to divert my attention. And I didn't want to seem like I was making fun… with the exception of Aretha's hat, of course. (She totally rocked it, by the way, didn't she? Who can pull off a hat like that? Aretha, bitches.)

I also would like to say how ridonkulously fitting that Dick Cheney finally made the full transformation to evil Mr. Potter from It's a Wonderful Life.

The wee-er one was given free reign this morning, while my hand flew to my mouth over and over, as I tried in vain to keep it together.

V8 everywhere, blue playdoh on the beige carpet, naked, wild.

"Oklobama!" she yelled. "Hook 'em Horns!"

And in this house, there is nothing held in more esteem than "hook 'em horns."

At least not until today.

  1. I, too, am excited about seeing what President Obama will do to help our great country. Today is a proud day to be an American. Best of luck to the new president.
    But I must ask, where will the Bush HATERS peddle their poison now??
    Hook ’em Horns!


  2. Bush Sr. rocked a cool hat too.
    I only got to see the speech but it was pretty awesome. Can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow!


  3. How funny that you observed the exact same thing about Cheney that I did. I was watching the inauguration with all my co-workers, and I turned to them all and said, “When did Cheney turn into Mr. Potter from It’s A Wonderful Life??!”
    Sadly, most of my co-workers are young, and they didn’t get the reference. Stupid Generation Y.
