President Oprahbama and Vice-President Bidumb

I have less than 24 hours to get used to the idea.

Apparently, security at the $170 million party is tighter than Kim Kardashian's Spanx. (Had I been blogging 20 years ago, I would have said "tighter than Charo's girdle.")

I can't tell you how relieved I am to hear that great gobs of cash are being spent on keeping the chosen one alive. The idea of President Bidumb is just too much to handle. (With all this Lincoln imagery being tossed about, I'm surprised Joe Bidumb didn't send Barack tickets to the Ford Theater as a "thank you.")

I've never been one to complain about the high cost of inaugural parties but I am one to complain about the hypocrisy of people who complained about Bush's price tag yet remain eerily silent when the B.O. gang freely spends tax payer money during an economic crisis. I'm just saying is all.

Yes, I'll be glued to the tube tomorrow morning. But, unlike many of the Oprahbama supporters, I've been glued to the tube for every inauguration since I can remember. For me, history didn't just start on November 4.

The only inauguration I've ever watched was Clinton's. Then Maya Angelou started to read a 300 million page piece of hers and I clocked out. Never watched one since and never will, unless I run out of sleeping pills.
