VANITY: Did anyone else notice the music before and after Obama's signing ceremony?

Posted on 02/17/2009 12:29:29 PM PST by cc2k

Right before they started, and right after he signed the bill.

The music was the pieces that Monty Python's Flying Circus used for their theme.

I was waiting for the giant animated foot to smash down on the stage.

I thought it might have been the guys at FOX playing games, but I switched to CSPAN, and it was the music playing where the ceremony was being held.

Yep. Its real title is The Liberty Bell March by John Phillip Sousa.

Any episode of Sponge-Bob Squarepants has more intellectually stimulating conversation than ANY Presidential Speech an/or Press Conference and/or interview with any "Congress-critter" and/or any statement by any "Administration Spokesperson" and/or any analysis by any "pundit".

It's quite sad, actually.

that unaccomplished negro is an illegal resident of the White House....

I do not call him my president. I presently do not have a president and won't for at least 3 years and 10 months at minimum. Unfortunately, we do have an unaccomplished negro as you say(I tend to agree) who occupies the office.

We need to reclaim our status in 2010 and begin the process of recovery....

I've been referring to him as Present Obama since he was elected. Partly because the press immediately started calling him "President" Obama.

Here's Present Obama's Official Seal


"President" with no ID

You could probably add Barney, Teletubbies, and Beavis and Butthead to that.

Yup, I watched a Tivoed rerun of Alfred Hitchcock. It was not nearly as scary as the current administration.

Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. If I went around claiming to be king just because some watery bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away! Oh, now we see the violence inherent in the system. Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I’m being repressed!

Classic movie. Too bad the ending sucked.

It’s probably symbolic for the large foot coming down on people who don’t agree with Obama. I wouldn’t mistake this as just a matter of chance.
