I have been slightly embarrassed, this week & today, about the emotional state of the American people (or, more specifically, the American media). This is a love fest. I've seen a few inauguration days, but nothing like this. Big name news anchors are glowing with expectation and love, bordering on worship (and I mean that seriously). This may, of course, sound like a bitter blog from a guy who didn't vote for Obama. But I'm the kind of guy who will allow President Obama to start with a clean slate. This is not an anti-Obama post, but an anti-idolatry post. And I think the festivities are, at best, borderline.
