It is funny to ogle the blind anti bipartisan Repugnant Neocons as they flail incessantly over trivial matters and miss the significant ones altogether. Then again it is a tradition for them to act in this manner.

How odd this is coming from those who shout "down with Political Correctness". The remark was an off hand joke of a type all of us make, all in all, I found the Leno thing a refreshing departure from the sinisiter hidden government of President Cheney and Stooge-in-Chief Bush. Leno, unlike the usual politcal reporters, seemed to have a real comman-man focus to his questions, and Obama's answers seemed absent the dodgy crap.

I think the thing that bugs Republicans the most is that we finally have a president that is willing to talk directly to the people, as if they were actually adults. This is such a radical departure from Bush's platitudionous drivel delivered in eight-year-old-speak, it is frightening for them, as they may have to actually hear the truth.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I like the Rudepublicans complaints that Obama shouldn't go on the show and work on the Economy.

How many vacations did Bush take to get us into this mess?
