All the Obamas look wonderful! The Orange Man looks like he threw up in his mouth.
Must have been torture for Boehner to have to sit through another of Obama’s inaugurations, out in the cold, listening to prayers and well-wishes for him. Just another one of those “elections have consequences” moments.
Yep, he doesn’t look happy. More like constipated.
You are so funny. Yep, the orange man doesn’t look too happy. Doesn’t Mrs. Obama look stunning? Nice to see an actual loving family together.
Good luck Mr. President!
I think the lady to John’s right is Mrs Boehner and she looked like her girdle was about 4 sizes too tight. There was a LOT of hate in those eyes when Obama was taking the oath.
If that is Mrs Boehner, I don’t blame John a bit. It may be his only escape.
That’s what the orange guy looks like when he’s about to cry … I suspect we’ll see that face a lot over the next couple years or so!
Do you think he’ll start drinking more? Is it possible for him to drink more? Is there enough alcohol on the face of the Earth to ease his pain? Inquiring minds want to know.
Perhaps he needs to try and get out the Oompa Loompa vote…
He’s either going to bury Hastert and inflame the TeaPots or live with total failure. Unlike John McCain who holds onto a grudge like a snapping turtle while whining unpleasantly and undermining the President publicly, Ol’ Orange John is supposed to acting like a grownup in public. So far, it seems that the Merlot market has growth possibilities.
I haven’t seen boner look this sad and dejected since he couldn’t get the votes for his “Plan B”.
Too bad for The Man from Orange that the Oompah-Loompah lobby doesn’t pack more of a wallup!
Boehner’s been looking slightly less orangy lately. I think Cantor’s been holding his tanning booth hostage.
And Mrs Robinson looks like she’s throwing some shade Chief Justice Roberts’ way. Too funny.
This casual disparagement of orange-Americans simply must stop!
Bless their hearts.
Best snicker of the day, watching Boehner looking like he’d rather be anywhere else.
While we’re at it, could Scalia look like more of a thug if he tried?
Somebody gave Scalia that hat, which is a replica of the one worn by Sir Thomas More in the Holbein portrait. More is known for having been executed because he supported the established church against Henry VIII’s new one, a martyr to conscience. But More, as Chancellor, had six men burned at the stake because they owned banned books and their religion didn’t quite match the established church, killing them as martyrs to their consciences. So, in that latter spirit, his hat seems quite appropriate for Scalia.
All in all, I thought this Obama inauguration was light-years better than the first one–even though there were fewer people jamming the Mall. Just brilliant from beginning to end, including the weather. Could it be an omen?
She isn’t shown in this picture, but the women(behind FLOTUS) on Mr. B’s left looked just as bad. Mr. B’s wife?
Rick, thanks for the ‘mattyrab’ link. Good stuff there.
Mrs. Robinson’s stark stare is aimed at CJ Roberts. Did the Chief Justice flummox his lines again, or is she still mad about last time?
Taken as a whole, this inauguration shined a light on the best of all things progressive & liberal, calling everyone to stand proud of their heritage as people who made this country great. Loved every minute of it!
“JJ & Friends” would be a great name for a radio talk show. Time to beat ‘em at their own game… funny trumps angry every time!
One of my very favorite moments was when Paul Ryan was directly behind Beyonce while people filed out – hubby Jay-Z was in front of her – I so wanted Jay-Z to turn around and snarl at LilPaulie. LilPaulie wanted Beyonce to turn around and acknowledge him – she did not. Why would she?
Then, during the luncheon at Statuary Hall, I noticed most of the RePigs hung around the edges and when finally seated, the Inauguration Conspirators of 2009, Cantor, McCarthy, LilPaulie and others were placed at the Clinton’s table – surely Bubba told them – “You look like fools, stop the obstruction, boys”. No party for you tonight, everyone is watching.
I wondered if anyone else noticed how appropriate Scalia’s medieval hat looked for him. If not Thomas More, then how about a thug of the DiMedici Popes? Funny about fire – it burned his bones as easily as it burned the neretics he sent to the flames.
