For those about to govern, we salute you

With a tip of a non-Che beret to AC/DC, my sentiments towards the Obama Administration here at the inception is the following;

For those about to govern [imperito],
we salute you [te salutant]

I pray for Obama’s success. Because if he fails, we fail. And if we fail, Islamofascists may be doing the saluting and they aren’t down with AC/DC. Their salute is more in tune with the Maximus Meridius crowd, morituri te salutant.

One thing I thought was unusual about the inaugural address. It was the part when Obama promised to end government programs that don’t work. I involuntarily guffawed when I heard it. Later I wondered, in such a short and important speech, why risk using what can be described as insincere boilerplate. The ultimate compliment I have for the new Obama team, is that I think they are too sharp to drop a line like that without being ready to back it up.

Thank you for reading this blog post.  You have committed the political equivalent of watching a junkie shoot up in an empty warehouse.
