The messiah-elect's Inauguration (and Woodstock Concert) are just days away. 1.5 million people are expected to attend these outdoor "festivities" amidst unprecedented security (and reportedly over a dozen strategically placed porta-potties). As starry-eyed worshippers of The One are packing for this roadtrip, I would suggest to them they include their longjohns and electric socks. It may be a little chilly. The bitter winds of change, Obama style, are racing toward all of us like a devastating Nor'easter gale.
Remember when Hurricane Gustav was bearing down on the gulf coast back in August? The libs at the Daily (Wac)Kos were beside themselves with joy at the prospect of a horrible storm punishing those nasty Republicans during their evil convention. The NYT asked if the timing was Karmic Payback.
Well we here at Chattering Teeth headquarters refuse to reciprocate and lower ourselves to their level. We hold no ill will towards these folks by cheering on colder temperatures. In fact, we are worried for the health and well-being of Washington's homeless population, what with Obama's roadies kicking them out of the area.
"District of Columbia and federal authorities are telling homeless people that they'll soon have to vacate the large chunk of property that will be secured before President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration Tuesday."
Wow. Obama appears to be modeling his administration after his beloved communist Chinese. He went out of his way to praise China for all of their infrastructure investment in the lead-up to the Olympics. Now, he is following their lead in sending the Migrants and Homeless Packing.
We can assume Obama's voters haven't educated themselves since election day and will be fully unprepared if dangerously low temps are in the forecast. Maybe his sheeple expect roadies to pass out wool sweaters upon their entry to the hallowed grounds. After all, he was elected to take care of all their needs. In fact...
If his followers get cold and hungry, all The One needs to do is have one of his disciples pass a basket containing 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish (a hoody and a 40-ouncer) amongst his minions.
Many have blogged about all of the Obama paraphenalia and souvenirs for sale in commemoration of this histeric event. Everything from dinner plates with The One's likeness, to coffee mugs, T-shirts, bumper stickers, etc. The over-commercialization and merchandising of Obama's inauguration is sad. All these folks are missing out on the true meaning of this event, that is, to quietly celebrate his birth (and skin pigmentation).
Is Inauguration Day weather a good prediction of the incoming administration's performance? You tell me.
Franklin D. Roosevelt: Torrential rains flooded his open car.
John F. Kennedy: An 8-inch snowfall
Ronald Reagan: Warm and sunny
Barack Obama:??? BITTER and a Chance of snow
