I just read the inauguration day line up on Huffington Post and I have to say I'm outraged.

Musical Selection, John Williams, composer/arranger

Itzhak Perlman, Violin

Yo-Yo Ma, Cello

Gabriela Montero, Piano

Anthony McGill, Clarinet

John Fucking Williams?  Yo-Yo Fucking Ma?  

John Williams is a monster.  I'm sure most of you are familiar with the history of the Galactic Empire.  This peaceful empire, ruled by the duly elected Emperor Palpatine, was overthrown by small but ruthless band of terrorists called the Rebel Alliance.  The Emperor was killed shortly before Lando Calrissian of the Alliance blew up the second Death Star.

Our hearts go out to those lost in this brutal act of terrorism.

Now, what does this have to do with John Williams?  Mr. Williams composed the music for six films that glorify the ridiculous revisionist history of the Empire's struggles with the Rebels.  

The inclusion of Williams in the inaugural celebration shows that Obama is willing to pal around with pals of people who pal around with terrorist.

And Yo-Yo Ma?  Two pictures will tell you all you need to know.


Who's that holding hands with Condi Rice?  It appears that Yo-Yo Ma is a necon.



Yo-Yo Ma performed for his BFFs Nancy and Ronald Reagan.  And who is that sitting between the Reagans?  Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan.  Do you remember what Japan did to us in WWII?  It's a little thing I like to call Pearl Harbor.

These choices show that Obama is willing to throw us under the bus in favor of these Reagan loving, Millennium Falcon flying musicians.

At this point I wish I would have voted for McCain.

By the way

I can't stand Warren. He shouldn't be anywhere near Washington on that or any other day.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
