Obama on His Inauguration: 'Bully!'

So far I’ve seen the Lincoln train ride, and the Lincoln Memorial speech, and I hear there's a Lincoln lunch menu. Before he’s even inaugurated Obama’s going to run out of Lincoln images, unless he wants to visit the Ford Theater, or maybe attend some cockfights.

Next we understand he’s going to do FDR, who is just as valuable a role model in light of Obama’s plans for saving the economy. Maybe FDR’s even more valuable a model than Lincoln, since we don’t have slavery any more and aren’t heading towards Civil War.

If Obama does do the Lincoln-FDR switch for his inaugural speech, we’re still trying to confirm if Obama’s going to be fitted out with FDR leg braces. We’re told this all depends on whether or not he decides to request dictatorial powers. (Americans would be much less likely to deny dictatorship to a handicapped person, fearing a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act). If he does the braces, Biden offered to carry Obama from a wheelchair to the podium himself. But this offer was rejected in view of Biden’s lower back situation, so Michelle will do it.

We did find that Obama’s photo op at FDR’s gravesite last week in Hyde Park was changed at the last minute. It seems Michelle found out Obama was intending to be photographed curled atop the grave the way Franklin’s “little dog Fala” reputedly used to do for weeks after her master was interred. The First Lady Elect put her foot down, but agreed to let Biden try it. We are told the Vice President Elect fell asleep in that position and was inadvertently left behind when the motorcade drove away.
