Inauguration Looks

Dan Quayle looked bloated

Jimmy Carter looked ready to go and build a house

Barbara Bush looked fit enough to complete the Bataan Death March…in one day.

Bill Clinton looked furious.

Dick Cheney looked like the love child of Mr. Burns and Dr. Strangelove

Michelle Obama looked like a Faberge egg in green gloves, a fabulous Faberge egg…

Joe Lewis looked dignified.

Rick Warren looked…well, all I could see was his homophobia, so I couldn’t tell you how he looked.

Aretha Franklin looked like she thought the size of the bow on her hat should be as expansive as her…voice (don’t be tacky, people).

Yo-Yo Ma looked like he was having a blast. Itzhak Perlman looked distracted.

Barack looked startled when neither he nor the chief justice could get the oath right

Malia looked pleased, “Good speech,” she told her father when he returned to his seat.

Elizabeth Alexander looked terrified but fabulous in red. One wonders why the inaugural poem could not have been a haiku—now that would have taken skill.

Reverend Joseph Lowery looked wonderful.

  1. Congratulations to President Obama and the people of the US of A.

    As a foreigner who wants good things to happen in any and all parts of the world, I wish Americans will work more in harmony with their president. How successful Obama can be as American president will depend on how well his fellow-Americans can rein in their demands for their expectations to be satisfied.

    Keep the hopes alive.

  2. Yo-Yo Ma looked joyful, didn’t he? Made me happy. Okay, the whole darn thing made me happy, but that totally added to it. 🙂
