Welcome, officially, to the role of my president.

I don't think I have ever watched a Presidential Inauguration before, and I can say with certainty that I have never before leapt out of my nice, hot shower to watch a Presidential Inauguration, shivering and dripping water on the living room floor.  I must confess, it doesn't quite feel I paid...formal enough attention to your swearing in, what with being mid pit-shave and naked and all.  But that's okay.  You were fumbling and visibly off rhythm yourself.

It seems appropriate.  This nation of ours is bumbling and off its rhythm right now.  So maybe in our own way, we're in sync, beginning this new administration right where we are, bumbled lines and half-shaved armpits and all.  It's going to be a rocky ride.  You're going to piss me off, you're going to make me cry, I'm going to cheer for you.  As for you?  Well, some of your staffers will undoubtedly continue to get emails from me, as they have been for some time. 

I don't know precisely what to say today, other than to look at you on the telly, and myself in the mirror - and accordingly every other American citizen today - and say, "Don't fuck this up."

I'm pulling for you.  For us.  For the world.

Thanks.  I'm going to go wash my hair now.

"don't fuck this up" = my attitude exactly. It's about once in every 30 years that a President gets an actual chance to actually change things for the better.

Please don't make my childrens' generation wait for a chance to be cynical. Guarded hope is the best feeling I've had about politics in a long time. Probably ever. Please don't fuck it up.

Quit dripping on the keyboard, you naked half-shaved blogger, you!
