Whitt's End: 1.23.09

*No matter if he ultimately sucks or not, you'll never forget where you were the day 1.4 million Americans converged on D.C. to watch Obama stroll up Pennsylvania Ave. I'm as jaded as they come, but that produced a chill down my spine and a tear in my eye.

*Speaking of creepy, didja see Dick Cheney with his scowl and his cane and his wheelchair. I coulda sworn it was Ol' Man Potter from It's A Wonderful Life.

*Just to freak people out and get the FoxNewsies all excited, I think President Obama should've finished his oath, turned the crowd and started rattling off some high-pitched Arabic before smiling and saying "Gotcha!"

*If you missed my weekly Observer column, it's right here. If you want to hear me on 105.3 The Fan this weekend, I'll be on Saturday 1-4 and Sunday 9:30-2. If you're a Ticket P1 and you want to play some more Murder the Messenger, feel free to leave a comment.
