    Get your Yub Nub on……

    The other day I was discussing all of the celebration going on because of the upcoming Inauguration and how it weirds me out just a bit. I mean I have never seen this before, not when Clinton was elected in ’92 which I guess was the last time there was a comparable amount of youthful joy. I’m as happy as the next guy but I just don’t want to set myself up for a fall when Obama fumbles the ball on something that I feel is important. My buddy Rob pointed out to me that maybe people are actually celebrating the departure of Bush more than the ascension of Obama. This made me realize that the celebrating is not so much about Obama as it is that the Deathstar has exploded and Darth Cheney is in a tailspin into the outer edges of the Cosmos. Yub Nub indeed my good friends.
