Wow, what. a. day. I so love my country. Here’s what went down:
Former President Bill Clinton is still being a little bitch to Former President Jimmy Carter. Former President George H.W. Bush wore his very special, piss-off-PETA hat. And Former First Lady Barbara Bush dressed up like George Washington to entertain the Obama children.
Ya see it? Huh?
The crowd booed when Bush 43 stepped out. Okay, that’s really an understatement. The raucous, coked-with-hope libtards hopetards patriots demoralized Bush 43 with taunts when he stepped out.
Barack Obama became President of the United States of America at noon.
At 12:01 the bitchin’ new Whitehouse.gov went online.
In typical conservative fashion, Chief Justice John Roberts Scrote-for-Brains screwed up the presidential oath and then acted like it was Obama’s fault.
It’s probably red meat for wingnuts whose spirits were crushed after the Obama birth certificate thing failed. How long before we hear, he never became President because he didn’t say the oath right.
Reverend Lowery gave the benediction which merits being quoted for posterity:
Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around — (laughter) — when yellow will be mellow — (laughter) — when the red man can get ahead, man — (laughter) — and when white will embrace what is right.
Let all those who do justice and love mercy say amen.”
Fast forward…Bush departs. And what are fellow Americans singing? Na, Na, Na, Na. Na, Na, Na, Na. Hey, Hey, Hey. Goodbye. For Real. It’s 4 minutes and 55 seconds into the video clip.
