Inauguration Chuckles...

George W. and the temporarily wheelchair-boudn Dick Cheney were jeered as their walk-off procession took place. Why people? It's meant to be a celebration. Obama in, Bush out.

"On Monday, Vice President Dick Cheney pulled a muscle in his back, leaving him in a wheelchair for the inauguration."

...or perhaps he staged the damn thing so that he wouldn't have to take the walk of shame. Hee hee.

Why oh why did Yahoo! find it necessary to report that the Obama's may have taken to briefly using African time at some point during the event. Okay, I'm reading to much into it but 5 minutes, seriously. I can't help but feel some unconscious innuendo here...oh whatever!

"Culminating four days of celebration, the nation's 56th inauguration day began for Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden with a traditional morning worship service at St. John's Episcopal Church, across Lafayette Park from the White House. Bells pealed from the historic church's tower as Obama and his wife, Michelle, arrived five minutes behind schedule."

The entire article if you find interest in getting a brief summing as well as a couple of good quotes from that historical speech.
