Anyone talking about the inauguration?
Self

Today at work, I did not hear one person discuss the inauguration of Obama Monday. Not one person. I work in MA and nave numerous liberal co-workers. Anone have similar experiences?

The day after the election, no one talked about the outcome either. Just walked around eerily silent.

A friend and I grumbled at one another in disgust. Does that count?

Same here. Not a word, even from the libs and black folk. Even they know we are on the road to disaster.

"Today at work..."

There's your answer right there.
You aren't going to find a lot of moochers, deadbeats, and parasites at "work".
Hence, no talk about the African communist's inauguration.

They're used to a fair amount of snow in K-Zoo.

Some laughs about the First Wookie at the feed trough and Odinga picking his nose.

Other than that we had other things like guns, ammo and reloading componenet to talk about

I was traveling yesterday so I listened on the radio. Bounced from MSNBC to CNN to FOX News.

I laughed the whole trip!

MSNBC made it sound like the second coming of Christ.

CNN was more on the lines of “Everyone loves a parade! Look! Pretty Balloons!”

Fox was, “Satan has landed. And he’s in DC.”

Just too funny! I did get a kick out of what seemed to be a somewhat intoxicated Ben Stein getting a little inappropriate about Obama’s kids. They cut away fairly quickly and he was nowhere to be heard later.

It was a typical MSM Joke. The three idiot networks doing what they are paid to do. Be left, be right, and CNN....? Ummm.... This wasn’t the Macy’s Day Parade. I don’t think CNN got the memo. All in all, made a long trip very entertaining!

Too bad I missed it.

I was having a bad day at work and asked that they change the channel. Oh, I get that this is a historical occasion, but I was irritated by the non-stop marching band noise. Played at full volume.

This was given as an excuse for the poor attendance by one of the organizers....”Also, Monday was a holiday and the campus was closed, as opposed to four years ago, when students were allowed to skip class to watch the Inauguration.”

Shaking my head. Idiots.

You’re lucky. My coworkers just couldn’t rave enough about how absolutely adorable and darling Michelle looked with her new hairdo.

The UPS guy and I both discussed how neither one of us watched a single minute of the event or the coverage of it.

The inauguration happened to fall on National Clean Your Cat's Litter Box Day, so attendance was naturally down.

I only heard people discussing Michelle’s dress’. Nothing at all about Obama himself. I don’t remember ever not hearing the President discussed in 24 years.
