Long Inauguration Day

Long Inauguration Day

Wednesday, January 21st 3:30am Dear Diary, Just got home last night after a very long day. I can’t believe I’ve been awake for almost 24 hours, but at least everything went pretty well. It’s safe to say that everyone loved me. I’ve got this country eating out of my hand. And fortunately, I’m nothing like George Bush, so I don’t have to worry about screwing it up all the time. Of course, I can’t count on everyone else to be quite as perfect. I can’t believe that Chief Justice John Roberts screwed up the presidential oath like that. I have to wonder if he did it on purpose …. He would want to make me look bad, being a Bush sympathizer and all… And people actually thought it was me who messed up? Come on… with all my schooling in constitutional law? I would be the last person to mess that one up. And I gave him a chance to fix it by pausing and letting him restate the oath. But he still got the “faithfully” part wrong. Unbelievable. AND he put “So help me god” at the end. That sort of interjection of religion into the constitution is NOT supposed to happen. At least on his part. It’s up to me if I want to put it in there, which I was fine with. but he’s a different story. As a justice, he should just quote what’s in the constitution. But I guess that’s a Bush-appointed justice for you…. Anyway, I should definitely get to bed… I’ve got such a busy day ahead of me tomorrow, I’ve at least got to get a couple hours of sleep…. Yours, Barack
