I listened in to the inaugural today. Wow, I guess freedom is the new buzzword. It's much cooler to kill Iraqis to bring them the blessings of liberty than to protect us from non-existent WMDs. And it seems to be easier to export than cars or steel or beef.
Thing thing that really bugged me though was all the over references to George Bush's God. While I am not going to rag on anyone for their private religious beliefs, I get worried when a political leader leans so heavily on the almighty for justifying his agenda. Between kicking things off with a prayer and wrapping them up with hymns, I was pretty put off. And lets not dwell on the horrifying rendition of John Ashcroft's "Let the Eagle Fly".
At least, as Jon Stewart put it, the W presidency is now half over.
