Woke up early and saw everyone fawning about the HBO party and Tom, “your un-American” Hanks. I’m almost getting diabetic listening to it.
6:34 a.m. Spike Lee has come on and once the founding fathers were mentioned Lee started attacking them. For those of you who voted for Barak Obama for the hope of absolution, forget it.
6:38 a.m. At least answering Lee has stopped the sugar. Scarborough makes a great point that kids going to school in say 1st grade will remember Obama as their first president and will not think anything of having a Black President. The importance of this can’t be overstated.
6:40 a.m. The pretense that Obama didn’t run as a black candidate is very funny. His only qualification was that he was a black candidate, but in fairness the media was the one who pushed the “history”.
6:42 a.m. The sight of Pat Buchanan and Spike Lee sitting three chairs from each other and discussing the founding of the county and MLK is something. The shot of it I think would make Charles Johnson’s head explode like Kryten over Ketchup on Lobster.
6:47 a.m. Now Lee is complaining about the lack of black coaches. He must have taken Frederick Douglas’ advice post emancipation, agitate agitate agitate.
Let it not be forgotten today that if it wasn’t for George W Bush and the security he brought to the country the public celebrations of yesterday and today might have been conducted in an atmosphere of fear and cowering rather than celebration. Those who are celebrating have forgotten it, I won’t.
7:02 a.m. Spike Lee says it had to be ordained by God. Apparently when republicans believe this we are fools, if democrats believe this it is celebrated.
7:05 a.m. Barnicle compares the last 8 years to domestic abuse. Oh c’mon!
7:07 a.m. Andrea Mitchell has replaced Pat. Should have mentioned it 4 min ago.
7:10 a.m. Spike Lee leaves saying he is glad to be an American. That’s a great close.
Update: fixed a sentence that had dropped its end.
