you say goodbye, i say hello
It's official! Yesterday, President-elect Barack Obama revealed his brand spanking new presidential portrait—apparently the first to be taken with a digital camera. Talk about a regime change!
By the way, I thought I'd share my favorite line from a recent Gail Collins column, in which it was noted that during President Bush's final press conference this week, our fearless leader couldn't refrain from using one of his favorite malapropisms ("misunderestimate"): "We are about to enter a world in which our commander in chief speaks in full sentences, and I do not know what we’re going to do to divert ourselves on slow days."
Well, I'm sure I can think of a few things (live puppy cam comes to mind), but it's true that an era of political comedy is about to ride off into the sunset. Unless, of course, you live in New York, in which case you can catch W. on Broadway for the next few months. By the way, if you're really wanting to get into the spirit of the inauguration next Tuesday, New York beauty salons are offering "Say Goodbye to Bush" bikini waxing specials! Woo hoo! &infin
