An inauguration for all

America-hating Americans unite in a new-found love of country as conservatards, hate-radio hosts squirm in panty-wringing denial.

A surprise for the right: Obama's election has caused a patriotic spirit to sweep America.

It just doesn't square with the right wing narrative. They painted Barack Obama as an unpatriotic, "terrorist sympathizing" candidate whose values are foreign to the American way of life. How could it be that his ascendance to the presidency should be the occasion for the new patriotic spirit sweeping America?

Well, for starters, Bush came into office to serve as president of his party, not the country. Secondly, he was an utter dick. C, so were his handlers. Fourth, because fuck you, rethugs.
