O Me of Little Faith

I didn’t plan to, but I ended up live-tweeting the inauguration. Thought I’d post the feed here because I didn’t really plan anything else for today, blog-wise. Anything I have to say would be no different from most other people — historic, inspiring, etc.

So instead you get this:

It’s a nice sigh of relief to finish a book. But I bet the president’s last hours in office are exponentially better. Bush: feelin’ good.

The youngest daughter is my Ellie’s age. Can’t help comparing… those girls’ lives are certainly about to change.

NPR commentators on Michelle’s outfit: Mustard…Buttery…Chartreuse. How about, um, yellow?

Don’t they know not to cheer during the prayer?

A giant bow is attempting to eat Aretha’s head! Where’s the secret service?

Sigh. Applause while wearing gloves is just not as effective as bare skin clapping.

“bitter swill”? That’s a weird phrase.

What? No shoutout to that hero pilot dude? I thought for sure he’d become the new Joe the Plumber.

Had to be hard for W, sitting there while his administration was ripped apart, eloquently but forcefully.

Oh, good. The poetry. I hope it rhymes. I’d give anything for a Dr. Seuss-like inauguration poem.

I salute you, new President Obama / in this beautiful Washington diorama / You’re President now / It’s a tough job, and how!

boom box…lettuce…marital…grievance…those aren’t very poetic words.

Wow. What a voice Lowery has. And THIS prayer rhymes a little. More of him praying. Less poetry next time.

His two minutes is up, but I don’t mind.

yella = be “mella” / “red man” = “get ahead, man” Seriously? Whoa.
Tue, Jan 20, 2009 11:38 AM

I’m glad Warren didn’t try to pull off the yella/red man stuff in his prayer. That would have been awkward.

How long until the crazy Obama-haters start saying he’s not officially President b/c they messed up the swearing-in part?
Tue, Jan 20, 2009 11:44 AM

@shaunking Totally agree with you. Both prayers were good, both were needed, both were symbolic.
Tue, Jan 20, 2009 11:45 AM

It would have been cool if Obama’s aids found some guy with a picnic basket and asked the new Pres to bless it and feed the crowd.
