Oh no! uʍop ǝpısdn sı ƃuıɥʇʎɹǝʌǝ

Dictator-for-life Bush out of office? Invincible Darth Cheney in a wheelchair? A non-Caucasian as the most powerful person in the world? How long have I been asleep?

Let me point you to a particularly prescient article from The Onion of eight years ago entitled Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Over. It contains gems such as this:

Bush also promised to bring an end to the severe war drought that plagued the nation under Clinton, assuring citizens that the U.S. will engage in at least one Gulf War-level armed conflict in the next four years

And this:

House Majority Leader Dennis Hastert (R-IL) told reporters. "Under Bush, we can all look forward to military aggression, deregulation of dangerous, greedy industries, and the defunding of vital domestic social-service programs upon which millions depend.

And with only a few minor opposite substitutions (like 'war' for 'peace' and 'black' for 'white') this article would probably describe Obama's inauguration perfectly.

Since Obama's election, I vowed to stay out of politics until his inauguration–just to give myself a rest after the stress of McCain/Palin's then impending victory. But he's in, and I'm back. Stay tuned.

Only the best from suoıʇɔǝlǝs lɐɹnʇɐu s,uıʍɹɐp.
