Okay, I guess I'm done waiting for the MSM to comment on the 44th presidential inauguration, so a few words from your basic nobody.
Actually, two words: it stunk.
First, the blatant cruelty–to say nothing of tackiness— of the "worshipers."
As outgoing President George W. Bush—you remember him, he saved your butt from terrorists, saved babies from being slaughtered not just in the womb, but after they were born, yeah, that guy—made his appearance, the beautiful people booed, jeered, and cursed him. Class act, you lefties.
And let's not forget the so-called "benediction" by The Reverend Joseph Lowery.
A "benediction" is a prayer. This was no prayer. It was the words of a man using the name of the Lord to spew hatred. And bigotry. And intolerance. And racism.
When was the last time you heard an Asian referred to as a "yellow?" Or a Native American as a "red man?"
From The Reverend Joseph Lowery:
"...we ask you to help us work for that day when
black will not be asked to get in back,
when brown can stick around,
when yellow will be mellow
when the red man can get ahead, man,
and when white will embrace what is right.”
Please do not tell me that this crap is "okay" because the speaker was (a) a one-time civil rights worker, or (b) because he's a "man of the cloth" or (c) because his skin is dark. That doesn't wash.
But then again, is The Reverend Joseph Lowery to blame?
Perhaps the new President, whose "worshipers" flayed John McCain for not properly "vetting" Sarah Palin prior to choosing her as his running mate (I mean, after all, her daughter had the nerve not to have an abortion after her pre-marital pregnancy!) should have "vetted" his chosen one's choice of words in his so-called "prayer."
Of course, perhaps he did...and found the insults just fine and dandy. I mean, hey, his audience evidently did. The fools shouted "amen" after being ordered to by The Reverend Joseph Lowery.
Holy Week is upon us, Lent has been a bear, and, a baby. - I trust you have been having a blessed and holy Lent. I seem to remember last year as not needing a lot of additional disciplines, as they came pre-pac...
