My President Is Black

I figured that since I acted like the election didn't happen, I ought to at least post a little something about the inauguration.

Did I think it would happen? Did I expect to see an African-American President? Not this soon. In fact, I didn't really see it as a real possibility until my friends and I were actually on our way to the polls. But I guess I'm not the best judge of racial standings. So yes, yes. Black President. Hoo-rah. I guess I should be happy that the door is open for black people to become President, but I can't really think of any black people I'd trust.

I try not to get too political on this blog, but it's not news that my views are very conservative. I don't agree with much of anything Obama promised to do. I'm one of those crazy conservatives that labels Obama as a socialist.

But enough about that, this was supposed to be about the inauguration. I didn't see it, but I sure enough heard about it. The one thing that stuck out to me, in all the reports and blogs is the booing of President Bush. Was that really a surprise? Sure it's incredibly rude and obnoxious. Sure it's immature and disrespectful. Sure, it's never happened before. But what do you expect when you have that many black people in the same place? Chaos! Add a black President and you should be happy nobody died! Reminds me of a funny Chris Rock bit.
