Put Your One Foot Forward...

James Wolcott has few things to add to Bullmoose's proposal (scroll down a little) to scrap the Presidential Inauguration.
No, America is not a starving nation--quite the opposite--but this "solemnization festivity," as Bull Moose points out, is an unseemly spectacle as the dead and wounded return from Iraq. "Somehow it is obscene for party goers to be dancing the Texas Two Step at the Black Tie and Boots Ball while across town young men and women are struggling to walk again at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval."

Hear, hear.

While you're reading Bullmoose, be sure to see "Hush Medals and Rumsfeld Retirement Watch II".
