Today’s the day I’ve been waiting eight years for, but more importantly, this is the day this nation’s been waiting forever for. Barack Obama becomes President of the United States today. At such a monumental moment in history, join us as we make awkward comments and occasional attempts at humor.
Like the man says, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for. But to hell with waiting. Let’s begin.
That’s right. Your worst fears have come to fruition. Sodblog will be Liveblogging the Inauguration of our first non-crusty old white guy President. We’re going to take this solemn, sacred, high-faluttin’ event and take it down to our level. Basically, we’re going to try our darnedest to find something funny in all of the pomp and circumstance.
So, if you’re CNN-ed out after the last couple of days of wall-to-wall coverage and need something to wash the Soledad O’Brien scent out of your clothes, come right here to Sodblog and follow along as we make sure that nothing, even such an awesome event as Obama being sworn-in as our 44th President, is sacred.
In case you hadn’t heard yet, there’s this peaceful transition of power happening tomorrow where Chimpy McFlightSuit turns over the White House keys to the new guy, Hopey McChangeAlot. In other news, a hilarious writing technique is to change the names of people you’re referring to to [Insert Personality Trait]y Mc[Insert Second Personality Trait] when you can’t think of that person’s real name.
Anyway, what the hell point was I trying to make? Oh yeah. Tomorrow, we are going to liveblog the ever loving shit out of the inauguration of your new hippie communist socialist terrorist president, Mr. Barack Obama.
Be here at approximately 11:30 EST as we make a mockery of one of the oldest traditions of our democracy – one President succeeding another and neither punching the other in the face. Along the way, we will make snarky little asides on the day’s proceedings and just generally be asses about the whole damn thing. It’ll either be the greatest event that ever happens to you in your natural born life, or an embarrassment to both you and to our loved ones. Those are literally the only two options.
As for the actual inauguration itself, I can’t say exactly how it is going to go, but I am prepared to state it will look something like this.
So don’t forget your Ecstasy and prepare to trip your balls off. It’s the Age of Obama, bitches!
