    I’m all excited, I think I’ll be disappointed not to see President Bartlet though, Ian and I watched the last episode of West Wing S7 last night, 2 inaugurations in as many days! hehe!
    At 12 O’clock on the dot all Bush’s crap gets packed up and moved out – woo!
    (I learned this from West Wing, obviously)

    It’s a shame Huw Edwards is presenting, though. He’s really shit.

    This is actually quite hard to watch. So far we’ve had :

    – Pretending that the USA is the only country in the world where leaders are elected rather than shooting their way to the top
    – Religious bullshit despite the USA being the only country in the world that is constitutionally secular
    – STEALING OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM

    No, no public speakers ever predict applause. They pause when it comes. His pauses are for effect and punctuation. To allow his words to sink in.

    A pause gives time for what he said to sink in, it is not meant for applause.
