Well, I’ve just watched Barack Obama’s inauguration. That was quite an inspiring moment. Great speech, nice pageantry without being over the top.
I’m pleased I watched it live. People talk about remembering Kennedy’s assassination or whatever. This is one I’ll remember.
Oh my god – I’m just listening to Frank McKenna, former Canadian ambassador doing commentary on CTV, pointing out that in Governor General Michaella Jean, Canada has a woman of colour and former refugee as head of state. I think he was trying to say something about two progressive countries working together, but honestly Frank — NOT THE TIME. Not even remotely comparable, either. I am so freaking embarassed.
