They're giving an opening prayer.

Christian prayer.

Quotes from Scripture are about God's love for Israel or something. I missed it.

OK how's the dick in the blue shirt? oh, that's the pastor guy everyone was freaking out about. He's a dick.

vaconex: AppleOptionEsc: NOW you can start blaming him for things. Because NOW he is president.

BDR459: Not An Alt: AnnoyingKidNextDoor: Not An Alt: You people in this thread make me sick. I haven't seen this much disrespect for a president leaving office since Taft left in '13. If it wasn't for the damn progressive republicans cutting his votes in half....I digress....

He was definitely our greatest president....especially in surface area.

You were alive in 1913?

Of course! While Taft was no choice bit of calico, he was certainly a butter and egg fly.

Did you have an onion on your belt?

Pipe down! That was the style. On saturday nights I'd hop in the model A and cruise over to my sally's house for some hot makin' time action. Sally was a real bearcat, but dates with her were a real orchid. I didn't have much money at the time, my model A was a real hayburner, but it was worth it because that was the best struggle buggy in 4 counties.

MSNBC works fine from here.

I really could do without all this god crap. Pisses me off every time.

Warren invocation prayer.

2009 and we are still going on with this old superstitious bs...

Post for posterity.

Go die in the largest, most painful fire, Warren.

Cheers during prayer. The savages are taking over.

Foaming: I thought he was going to use the "Hussein" - They just announced him as "H"

I think they said they are going to swear him in with his middle name, not introduce him.

Diane Feinstein - what a coont!

zomega: I'm stuck at work and can't watch. :/

Streamed on the NYTimes homepage.

Damn this guy can't speak for shiat. He sounds awkward.
2009-01-20 11:50:23 AM  

nekom: Didn't take long for them to mention MLK. I guess it's pretty appropriate.

Why? Did his father run out on him too leaving him to be raised by his white mother and her family?
2009-01-20 11:50:23 AM  
Glad we're keeping church and state separate.
2009-01-20 11:50:28 AM  
i dont know why, but im angry about the priest guys speech...a little "down your throaty" with the god bit...

God Cheney is such a scumbag. At least bush is an idiot. Cheney is just a demon in skin.

This invocation is pretty lame. Warren thinks saying words loudly = moving speech.

Give me conjoined twin surprise buttsecks thread any day.

Your sadness brings me glee.
2009-01-20 11:50:46 AM  
As a born-again Christian/Obama supporter, I would have loved to see Rev. Wright give the invocation. @#?!?!#-damned Father in Heaven!
2009-01-20 11:50:47 AM  
So wait.. Obama is black?
2009-01-20 11:50:47 AM  
Is this a thread about that nice, clean cut, well spoken colored person that was running for president?

Nah, it's about how the Republicans suck so bad at fighting terrorists they lost the Nation. :)

Folks, I'm in my 50s and I never thought I would live to see this day.
This is a wonderful day for America.

The Prayer has started playing the race card and referring to MLK Jr.
2009-01-20 11:50:52 AM  
That prayer is making me uncomfortable. Who claps during a prayer? Isn't grand standing in the name of God at least supposed to be frowned upon by the invisible sky wizard people?

My company shares a T1 with 3 other floors of this building. This streaming video so sucks so badly... :(

Why wasn't today mandated a national holiday?

You already had "black day" yesterday.

Are the Blues Brothers coming out soon?

Aretha is there. Got a pastor. Let's get this thing going.
2009-01-20 11:51:06 AM  
Warren is far from inspiring.
2009-01-20 11:51:07 AM  
Amazing, Rick Warren has made me feel blessed...

Blessed that my work bandwidth is so tiny and over-shared that the audio/video chopping is making his entire invocation prayer unintelligible.
2009-01-20 11:51:15 AM  
Hahaha kids don't care about God, Rick Warren.

Aww did someone piss in your cereal?

Oh Lord. Ooo thou art so big...so absolutely huge...

Good idea oh Lord!

ambienAnnie: smiling down on us from heaven today

According to Rick Warren he might not be there because of history and whiteness. At least that is what this queerly non-secular prayer is sounding like.
2009-01-20 11:51:23 AM  
This prayer... obnoxious.

"..and Lord, I command you to smite those who would have sex with others of their own sex, and pretty much anyone who doesn't think like I do. Thank you for you love and kindness."

I hope you are enjoying this historic occasion where Obama will give a historic speach as he is historically sworn in, in front of a historic crowd so he can begin his historic presidency! Historic!

/seriously, anyone else getting fed up with that word being used every other sentence?
