If you're not a follower of the "top conservatives on Twitter" (#tcot), you really missed out today. Here's how it started, before the ceremony even began:

SAD SAD day in America. #TGDN #tcot

Our favorite would-be president weighs in:

The Constitution is a mere annoyance for Obama! http://t.co/... #tcot

Here's a burning question:

Will MSM give any coverage of protesters in DC? Doh? What am I thinking, MSM is so enamored w/O that showing real discent is bad press #tcot

The reviews of the speech itself—Nazi? Marxist? Fascist?

500,000 people on Capitol Hill screaming FOR the dismantling of our economy and rights.Looks similar to a Hitler rally #TGDN #NRA #tcot

Make no mistake... I don't give a f**k what color a MARXIST is ...  invoking founders words in his empty screed... #teaparty #tcot #ocra

This speech is fascistic. Emphasizing his desire for government involvement shrouded in campaign slogans and catchphrases. #tcot #inaug2013
@yatishparmar023 via web

But the real capper, for it's sheer hypocrisy and idiocy:

That was just a political speech. Shameful. Missed an opportunity to bring nation together, @BarackObama. #inaug2013 #TGDN #tcot

More "highlights" from crazy-land below the fold.

There was one passage in the speech that really got them going:

He's talking about addressing "the threat of climate change" #wearesoscrewed #tlot #tcot
@NatalieDuvalNY via Twitter for iPhone
Muthereffer...now he's talking about global warming? SMH...could I hate this guy any more? #Obama #inaug2013 #TGDN #tcot

The really bizarre conspiracy theories:

Obama's 2nd inauguration is also 2nd time it's 'fallen' on the MLK Day The 1st was Clinton's 2nd inauguration - Coincidence? #lmao #tcot
@LifeOnTheRight via web
We think... RT @Gunnerguy1911: Look at the bright side - This is the beginning of the end of Obama's second term. #tcot
@zellster via TweetDeck
I have a sick feeling that this inauguration is just a hoax. #soundstage #spielberg #lucas #CGI #tcot

“@RoushBr: Muslim American inaugural event places minaret over White House http://t.co/... #tgdn #tcot #teaparty”

Disgraceful

And just the unfortunately typical.

C'mon God, just one lightening strike? PLEASE. #gop #tcot #teaparty #lnyhbt

Barack Hussein Obama was elected because of the color of his skin, and despite the content of his character. #tcot #p2
@ResistTyranny via TweetDeck
God, please wake me up from this terrible nightmare.I am seeing a Muslim communist destroy America. #RedNationRising #revolution2013 #tcot

And, of course:

HOW CAN A GUY WHO'S NOT EVEN AMERICAN BE A TWO-TERM PRESIDENT, YOU GUYS??? #tcot #NObama

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.
