I was impressed with George Bush Sr.’s regal bearing, his purple scarf and
great-coat, trapper’s hat with ear flaps and walking stick. What a fashion
plate. That guy came dressed to restore the family’s good name and breeding.
I loved Aretha’s bump and grind rendering of My Country tis of Thee shedding
as she did the diphthong and exposing the old motherland for what it is.
F-cked. Kate says Louis 14 wrote that melody. Jay Leno thought her big grey
bow looked like a Lexus hood ornament. Too bad they didn’t have a better
poet.

Obama was having a fit of the giggles just as he went up to take the oaf (clumsy) of
office and seemed taken aback upon hearing Judge Roberts say his full name
(almost like it wasn’t his) Who is this guy?

    Yes, the matching purple scarves of the Bush seniors before they begin to disintegrate… Barbara Bush gave us best line of the day

    “I’m alright, I’ll just take this rail here..”

    During the address, I began to worry that the marine band would start to quietly play “Hail To the Chief” crescendoing in an attempt to get Obama to “wrap it up” Oscar style.

    Elizabeth Alexander the poet was a guest on Colbert 2 nights ago. She was terrific.
