Dudes! NEVER, EVER, EVER trip over your words during the Presidential Oath of Office!

The American Peeps are apparently as forgiving of human error as my parents. Perhaps I like us more than I think!!!

LiveBlogging from the Presidential Inaugurasian

January 19th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Hello from Washington, D.C.– our nation’s chilly, beautiful capital!

I’m here this week to celebrate at stuffy panels, earnest documentary screenings, overstuffed, decadent balls, and colossal public events–all in preparation for the moment that Barack Obama says that beautiful Oath of office and closes the door on America’s eight-year Era of Shame.

I’m not the only one excited about the festivities here. Guess who arrived on my flight?

Mr. Bean goes to Washington

It feels like it really began yesterday afternoon, but the streets are buzzing with energy. People are simply going bananas, in a good way! They’re breaking out into “Yes We Can!” chants on the street. They’re partying until 5am! They’re watching CNN EVERYWHERE.

I can barely handle the hullabaloo (this may because I am nursing a monster hangover from showing my “energy” until 7am last night), so instead of shouting my joy out on the street, I’m just kicking it old school with my real friends at the hotel:

Just hangin’–DISGRASIAN girls roll large!

Time to put on my mittens and brave the cold with the newly-formed hordes! It feels like hundreds of thousands of people arrived this morning. Talk to you all soon!


P.S. Want more updates? Check our Twitter for tweets while I run around town!

Thanks, Erika!

Next Stop: Inaugurasian Daysian

“Those damn liberals!”

South Korea has elected Lee “The Bulldozer” Myung-bak as their new president, and he’s a former Hyundai CEO with a sketchy-possibly-criminal past and a boldly conservative economic plan for the future.

AP reports:
South Koreans apparently wanted change so badly that they were willing to overlook accusations of ethical lapses that dogged Lee throughout his campaign.

Just days before the election, parliament approved an independent counsel investigation into allegations that Lee manipulated stock. The investigation is to be completed before the Feb. 25 inauguration, and Lee has said he will step down if found at fault.

“After all, the people chose the economy over morality,” the Maeil Business Newspaper wrote in an editorial for its Thursday editions.

Oh geez, South Korea. Take it from us, ‘cuz we speak from experience. Not a great idea.
