What about all the pickpockets?

(Not from the audience, but from all the crooked congresscritters wandering around?)

Remember, they’ve mortgaged the next three generations, and they’re not done yet.

I’d recommend a large spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide if you feel the need to use one of those liberal porta potties!

They shouldn’t need much paper as this crowd only uses one sheet per visit. Place will smell like a hog farm.

If ‘millions’ of people can go to Washington for the inauguration, then the economy isn’t doing all that badly. Just my NSHO.

Well, it IS Washington D.C. So one should get the immunization record up to date. Also bring latex gloves, soap, deodorant, mouth wash, paper towels, and a portable water purifier.

We're being told the bridges from Virginia to Maryland and DC are being closed to automobile traffic so you have to use the subway, or walk.

They expect 5 million subway riders. The system's maximum capacity is 1 million per day.

So, roughly, they expect ten times as many people to attend as the system can handle.

Bring your own food too!

Good advice,Everyone knows a great many of Obamas supporters tend to stand around with their thumb up their butt.

Nah... then he’d be accused of depressing the electorate so he could promote his Socialist agenda.. blah blah blah

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

All I've got to say is that I hope all the refuse can be picked up and gone by the 24th.
Postponing my trip one week was bad enough...

...or the Internet

In winter, from my upstairs balcony, I can see the Capitol - with binoculars. So if giant clouds of smoke start billowing up or sirens blare endlessly or the scent of pepper spray and port-a-jons wafts through the air, I'll hop on FR and see what's up.

Otherwise, I'm staying in my PJs all day and reading Atlas Shrugged.
