    Clinton was a fucking bastard who vandalized the White House before Bush entered.


    And Bush isn't going to pardon shit. He doesn't give a fuck.

    Most of those rumors were greatly exaggerated.

    Yeah, the vast majority of that was never proven.

    Currently ending on HBO in HD : Barack Obama hosts the Oscars/Grammy's with a new flavor of Hopium.

    It'll be on again tonight at 1130. Apparently its being offered free to most cable companies (HBO not wanting to Bogart it). The estimated crowd size was 400,000 and DC police had to turn people away. The sight of the Lincoln Memorial in HD, with Obama right in front it and a crowd covering the entire Mall is worth the time alone.

    These things are always a waste of money, however, they can be damned good for morale.

    Thing is this: There is a huge number of people SHOWING UP REGARDLESS, so you may as well keep them happy so they don't riot or something.

    You can make a damn good argument that 10-20 million here will be worth more than putting that into the economy in terms of increasing confidence (one thing that really helped FDR was that he made the country optimistic with his Fireside chats)

    It's fun watching Krauthammer try to say that Obama's election justifies everything Bush (read: Krauthammer) ever said. He's just hilariously intellectually dishonest.

    OK. those legos. That is amazingly cool.

    I managed to switchmy days off so that I would be able to watch the innauguration.

    Had to pick up a morning shift on thursday, but it's going to be worth it.

    Completely and totally worth it.

    Also they are wasting quite a bit of $

    If Obama actually sticks to the constitution I will change my mind about him, however.

    Considering the fact that he's a constitutional law professor, I'd say the odds are pretty good that he's got some respect for it. Odds are also pretty good that he knows more about it than 99% of the people on this forum.

    Personally I don't give a fuck if he sticks to the constitution or not, as long as he does a good job I'm glad. I'm content with the decisions he has made so far.

    And now we see how you, and perhaps you alone, think that Bush will be remembered better by history than by those of us who lived through him.
    He won't be.

    I once got a letter from Clinton's dog after I visited the White House.

    I think that just means they wrote a letter to the white house which wasn't a death threat.

    junk mail. Bah.

    once I get the extra money to do so, I'm totally framing the thing and sticking it up on my wall.

    If I haven't lost it or crushed it before then.

    Yeah, i'm sappy. But dammit, I soooo wish I was still living with my parents this year. I would be camped out at Lincoln's feet.

    I remember in high school we got a photo of Bush in the mail with instructions "PRESIDENTIAL PHOTO - DO NOT BEND" written all over the envelope.

    I thought, who the hell does this guy think he is? The Virgin Mary? Is his picture an icon now?
