How he may look on January 20. Anything's possible.

Remember the ridiculous law suit being brought against President-elect Obama because he dares has the pledge of allegiance recited at his inauguration?

Yeah, well, at least those persnickety Atheists have nothing to day about the fact the BarackStar chose a Bible for his oath. And much to the chagrin of rednecks, Klansmen and bigoted misanthropes everywhere, it’s the same Bible Abraham Lincoln used. Nice.

“President-elect Obama is deeply honored that the Library of Congress has made the Lincoln Bible available for use during his swearing-in,” said Presidential Inaugural Committee Executive Director Emmett Beliveau. “The President-elect is committed to holding an Inauguration that celebrates America’s unity, and the use of this historic Bible will provide a powerful connection to our common past and common heritage.”

Well, duh! What was he going to do? Walk on down to the local Lifeway and grab a Parallel Bible for kicks? Not so much.

This 1,280-page book of holy writ was published in 1853. And who says the Word of God isn’t timeless? This story is one in a voluminous array of them that should surpass party affiliation or preference. It’s historic that “We, the people” get to witness something like this.

I just hope he realizes for those regaled “first 100 days” won’t be empowered by the days of how the South got their tails handed to them. Ironic though. Thanks to that anticipated oath, this country will enter a new era of reconstruction. Hrm. The more things change, the more they stay the same indeed.

  1. Any IDIOT who would desecrate a great president such as A.Lincoln should more rightly have used ALFRED E.NEWMAN’s face superimposed over Barack Obama’s face. After all, President Obama seems to reverberate Newman’s famous words: WHAT, ME WORRY? Yes, Virginia, there is an idiot whose sole purpose is to empower the INFERNAL REVENUE SERVICE to not only collect and abuse taxpayers, but also ILL TAXPAYERS with their 50 (that’s right fifty) BILLION dollar reinvestment act (also known as the recently puked-up healthcare bill.) Of course, none of the voting public would recognize the reality of why it was so important to POTUS for this travisty of legislative option to pass. Ask not what your country can do for you, Mr. Obama, but rather ask what you can do for your country…(where did we hear this before?).
