Barack the Magic Negro Watch: Day 1

Well, he certainly is a cool customer, I have to give him that. It's not easy to inspire hope while warning of a shitstorm, but that's what he managed to do. Inspire with words of service and duty. We're going to have to work our way out of the hole that the GWB administration and the forces of time have left us in - but that work is worthy, and uplifting.

His energy was flagging by the fourth Inaugural Ball. If I'd started my day being given a briefing on how I might launch a nuclear strike, I'd have looked a damn sight punchier than he did, I can tell you that for nothing.

My word for the Obama presidency theme: Armorglass. Lots of it.

Oh yeah, that limo is a frakking beast.

I feel about the Obama presidency remarkably as I do about Battlestar Galactica right now. The situation is ugly, but I still desperately want it to be next Sunday already so I can tune in and participate in the drama.
