World News Trust: So What Do I Do Now? (Mary Lyon)

Im not sure how to behave anymore.

Mary Lyon, From The Left -- World News Trust

Jan. 21, 2009 -- This is a heckuva hangover. More than just the sun dawned on me on the morning after Obama Day. I realized as I woke up following the Inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States that Im not sure how to behave anymore.

For eight years Ive felt like a hostage. This might as well have been a lesser version of Gitmo from where I stood. Its been sheer torture watching America taking its cue from the George W. Bush way of operating and literally devolving.

Ive spent eight years gritting my teeth when a view of the White House flashed across my TV. I could never look at that view without thinking how that house had been stolen out from Al Gore and all the rest of us. Id think about the occupant within and find it impossible even to refer to him as President. I just couldnt. Still cant, if you really wanna know. He just was never The President, to me. Didnt win fair and square the first time. The results the second time are sufficiently questionable in my mind that I couldnt warm up to him then, either. And considering the ham-handed behavior of the bullies and goons surrounding him at all times, there was literally nothing to convince me otherwise.

For that entire period, I simply didnt have a President. And Ive gotten used to that.

2. Thanks, Tace!
At this hour, evidently that idiot airhead john roberts fucked up the Oath of Office yesterday significantly that they held a re-do today. Good LORD.

I dunno, Mr. President. I feel the fists clenching up again...

4. My Wife And I Had A Good Chat About That
We figured it was a Freudian slip on Roberts' part. Sure seems symbolic somehow.
