I had a filthy sex post queued up and ready to go, but decided to pull it in favor of traveling the high road. I’m busting out a Weekly with a roundup of posts about Obama and the Inauguration from around the Web and our blog friends. Enjoy.
Filthy sex to appear later this week, I promise.
First off, you can watch the whole inauguration speech at CNN.com: see the video. Read the text here (2400+ words). Obama’s inauguration speech was written by 26-year-old Jon Favreau and you can read an interesting profile of that guy at the NY Times. Favreau says he isn’t getting laid despite being the top speechwriter, which I think is absurd.
If you absolutely must gorge on the latest Obama news, try the aggregated feeds from Obama.alltop.com.
THE COOLEST THING EVER: The White House has gotten itself sucked into the Web 2.0 vortex; it now has an official blog: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog. Sadly, comments are turned off, but I used this form to put in a plug to have them switched on.
Arrianna Huffington had a great post about how Obama’s speech was a major reality check.
Orson Swindle blogged his terribly funny EDSBS inauguration speech, which references Barkevious Mingo, Rabelaisian, the Arizona Cardinals, P.J. O’Rourke, and Cthulhu. Goddamn, why can’t I be this funny?
Dave Wygant posted a passionate video about how you should change your own life. I have to say, I was totally pumped after watching this! DW was in DC for the inauguration and he ties his vid to Obama as savior.
Rachel Sarah is obsessed with Malia and Sasha’s hair, on the Single Mom Seeking blog. Also, be sure to check out some of her latest posts about hidey spots for sex toys and asking men out on second dates! Good stuff.
Eathan at idatewhite.com is gushing with pride in his post Change Is Coming. Clearly, he has a mancrush on our new President, which is rivaled only by my own mancrush on said President.
This one is from ESPN columnist Tom Farrey, an open letter to Barack Obama about helping kids play. If you’re a sports nut like me, spend the ten minutes and read the whole thing.
If there were other kickass posts from Jan 20 you liked, leave in comments. Remember, Honey and Lance love you in a totally non-sexual way, unless you happen to one of these fine bloggers here or here, and then Lance loves you a wee bit more than that.
