I was home with a sick kid today so I watched the Inaguration in all its splendor. Some observations:
An observation: given the tone of the inaguration, shouldn't the title of this post also be "False Messiah?"
My mandolin teacher and I spent 20 minutes yesterday talking about the inaguration during my lesson. Outside the window of our classroom hundreds of people were protesting the inaguration outside of city hall. I remember four years ago asking myself "how much damage could Bush really do in four years?" and not worrying. Now I worry.

Count me in as someone who doesn't feel what we are in Iraq is worth any loss of life, especially American lives.

I think John Stewart said it best on The Daily Show. He said as George Bush solemnly swore during the oath of office, 49% of America also solemnly swore.

I think democracy is one of the few concepts worth dying for. I just don't think what we're doing in Iraq comes anywhere close to it.
