A smidgen of optimism

Okay, I’ll admit it: I am feeling a smidgen of optimism today. But that's as much as I'll allow because, after all, this isn't my first time at the rodeo. Nonetheless, I keep finding myself tearing up during the pre-inaugural festivities because OMFG!!!1!!11! the error era of Dubya and the Dickster is almost over.

Now, if the TeeVee airheads would just stop solemnly intoning about how our inauguration is such a wonderful object lesson for the rest of the world regarding the orderly transfer of power. I just hope the viewers in England, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, et al have a sense of humor about that. After all, they are much more orderly -- and certainly much more efficient and pragmatic -- than we are.
