So far, I've managed to avoid the hype by avoiding network tv and cable news. I've also done my best to not visit the political and news sites that I would normally peruse in order to not stimulate my gag reflex. One tidbit that I have picked up was that it's believed by some morons that this will be the largest gathering of humanity ever. There are seriously idiots out there who believe that more people will show up at the inauguration than have ever gathered in one place before. I swear my mind's eye is bleeding just thinking about these idiots. It turns out (according to a Time magazine article I read) that the biggest inauguration crowd ever seen was 1 million people for LBJ back around 30 years ago. According to the US census, there were 200 million people living in the US back then. As of 2008, it's estimated that there are just over 300 million here now. So in order to match LBJ's figure, the Obamaniacs would have to amass a crowd of 1.5 million. I figure that's wholly within the realm of possibility and would be at least a minor accomplishment. I almost wish I was a pot dealer or henna tattoo'er living in washington dc. This must be a once in a lifetime week to make mad cash.
I'll admit (Ha) that I didn't think too highly of Obama during the election cycle, but I'm willing to give it a whirl. It's not really in my nature but I'm going to try my best to be patient and give the guy the benefit of the doubt. This would definitely be a much easier task if there weren't all of these crazed Obama cultists roaming around and frothing at the mouth. It's hard not to want to hate the guy when there are so many people who swear he can walk on water. I only hope that Jesus hasn't scheduled his second coming for today or tomorrow. He might be disappointed that so many spazzcases have already found their savior.
Anyway, like I was saying, I'm going to try to cut Obama some slack. Maybe he will manage to be larger than life and a perfect human being. As such, I've decided to give him a pass on the first three things he does to piss me off. That's right. I've instituted a political 3 strikes policy. You might think that's still sort of harsh, but it's a huge step forward for me. Normally, I'd advocating his
