I felt the urge to say "America, Fuck Yeah!" and actually mean it non-ironically.

Yes, I heard that.

Heh. My aunt and uncle's citizenship application isn't completed yet. I wonder what they're up to right now.

Damn right! I feel so American I could happily bomb a third world country, and you don't get much more American than that!

USA! USA! USA!

Why yes, yes we do, thanks ever so.

Lovely new President and a lovely new Vice President who does not make me wonder, every time I see him, whether or not he has a shrine to Adolf Hitler hidden in his house.

Oh, you know people thought that when they looked at Cheyney. Scary, scary dude. How nice to have a President and Vice President who don't scare the shit out of me. How nice to have elected officials who are not so stiff, so ramrod-up-the-arse unbending that they can take a moment during the Inauguration to help the President's daughter with her digital camera.

I'm loving this.

Ah yes, the ending of the reign of Bush and Cheney. Oh, joyous day.

Though I do wonder what comedians are going to use as fodder for political jokes from now on. Those two were a wonder when it came to providing material for mockery.

This is very true. Jon Stewart has been mourning the loss of Bush-as-comedy-fodder since November. Every time Bush did another classic WTF thing Stewart would look at the camera and say with real feeling "I'm going to miss him."

Australia had a bit of that when Rudd was voted in. He ended up proving comedy fodder, but it just isn't the same...

President Obama can be funny but he's not irretrievably stupid and that's where comedy gold is mined.

I'm feeling sorry for Jon Stewart but I feel sorrier for Stephen Colbert, who made a career of being a Bush acolyte. Colbert took one little swipe at President Obama on his show and got booed. It's going to be a big change for him even if he is in reality a major Obama supporter.

I think they have high hopes for Dr. Jill Biden. Now I feel sorry for her.

Yeah, it'll be ...interesting to see what the Fake News shows do with themselves now.

I now I've seen a lot of comments on the Bidens - both of them - being gaff-prone, so it seems the comedians are holding out for them.

Yes, though immediately afterwards I began to regret it. I suppose I should go to bed early tonight.

I won't have a choice in the matter; I'm so tired I really shouldn't have driven to class today!
