It’s finally here. The big day. An African American President, and I don’t even have to watch Keifer Sutherland act.
If I were delivering the invocation at today’s ceremony, I would remind people to stop putting their baggage on the new Prez’s shoulders. He doesn’t need to be a symbol of how far you’ve come as a nation. He doesn’t need to reconcile this nation’s historic racial turmoil. He doesn’t need to fulfill anybody’s dreams but his own. The job will be hard enough.
So suck it, Bono.
