Chief Justice John Roberts and Barack Obama stumbled their way through the oath, Aretha sang beautifully but not in a way that any of us could sing along, and Elizabeth Alexander read the most boring poem ever – but seriously folks, it’s been a wild ride for Americans and their new Commander-in-Chief. Come hell or high water, President Obama promises hope for all Americans, and he won’t take “I can’t” for an answer.
Not so seriously is a look back on the days leading up to this new chapter in all our lives.
What the hell is that on the mic? Is that…celery?
Damn that Biden and his tunas on rye.
I thought it was just media hype, but you really are out of focus.
Seriously, ma’am, you sent me to the wrong airport.
Well that’s great that my luggage is in Washington.
Maybe you can call them and tell them to inaugurate
our first black quilted leather rollaway suitcase as president!
Never let ‘em see you wet.
Joe, we’re pointing at the next reporter with a question, not the chocolate fountain.
Focus, you goofy bastard!
Like most residents of D.C. before two million out-of-towners arrived,
the Obamas got the hell out of there while the gettin’ was good.
The entire town of Canton, Georgia traveled to D.C. for the inauguration and gathered
on what they thought was an 18th century piece of playground equipment.
Bush: You want a piece of this? Huh!
Obama: (laughing) Dude, please.
Two generals arrive for the inauguration and in eager anticipation
of the repeal of “Don’t ask, Don’t tell.”
Inaugural attendants treated visitors from local nursing homes very well.
Local and federal authorities scramble to figure out a way to block
the first assassination attempt on Obama by a giant.
See Barack? I’m black. You’re sienna. Our first sienna president.
Yes Virginia, there really is a way to get two million different people
in one place for one purpose without everyone hurting each other.
