No Class

This week's inauguration of President Barack Obama was an opportunity to once again show the world that a peaceful transition of power is still possible, and that, in the United States of America, it is still the norm. The inauguration was also an opportunity for liberals to once again show the country what a lack of class looks like. Neither opportunity was wasted.

When a portion of the inaugural crowd chanted "Na-na-na-nah, hey, hey, hey, goodbye" in reference to President Bush's leaving office, they showed that not only can they not lose an election with grace (remember "Bush stole the election!" and "Not my President!"?), but that they are also utterly incapable of winning an election with any level of propriety.

Now, just so that no one gets the mistaken impression that rude, disrespectful, and tasteless behavior is a quality reserved only for the common liberal, one of the great liberal leaders of our time, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, has expressed her thoughts on the Obama inauguration. From the San Francisco Chronicle we have this:

"Pelosi said one of her favorite moments from Inauguration Day was when Marine One lifted off the Capitol grounds, signifying former President George W. Bush's exit from Washington. 'It felt like a 10-pound anvil was lifted off my head,' she said."
Absolutely no class!

These graceless people who rewrite the Constitution, embrace abortion, encourage our enemies in a time of war, cheat in elections...

I could not agree with you more.

On top of the lack of class of the common person and politician, the clergy were pretty tacky as well. Rick Warren offered up something I would not classify as much of a prayer and Rev. Lowry made an offensive mockery of the benediction.

Yes, it was quite a moment for our country.

Do anvils only weigh 10 lbs? I always thought they weighed 50 or 100 or 200 lbs. That Nancy Pelosi had it good!

Christina,

Rick Warren offered a prayer-like substance, perfectly in keeping with a religious-like substance of a new president.
