I don't know if Jesus is worthy of comparison to the liberal's deity.

Eh, this presidency has been heavy on the celebrity influence from the beginning, so definitely not surprising. It's sad, but it's what it has come to.

Well, Bill Clinton had a lot of celebrity influence too. He and Hillary danced to Fleetwood Mac at one of the Balls, IIRC.

When there is a young-ish Democratic President, expect Hollywood/celebrity involvement. A Republican President, of any sort, gets you Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, and Nick Searcy. :lol:

Someone should ask Katy Perry how she feels about the president's atrocious civil liberties record :pop:

I have read a ton of Tweets about how "glamorous" and "elegant" Michelle Obama looks today:

The media obsession with wanting to turn her into Jackie Onassis is entertaining.

What it's come to or what it's been?

Presidency has its advantages.

Case in point: George W. Bush assembled some of pop music's finest — including Ricky Martin, 98 Degrees, Jessica Simpson and Destiny's Child — in Washington, D.C., over the weekend to help mark his move into the White House. Country stars Lyle Lovett, Clint Black, Marcia Ball, Reckless Kelly, Asleep at the Wheel, Tanya Tucker, Mark Chesnutt, Lee Greenwood and appropriately Southern-fried rockers ZZ Top also contributed to the soundtrack for the nation's 54th inaugural.


I'm sure we'll see similar spectacles at every inauguration from here on out.

Of course, inaugurals have always been like that. I'm talking about the presidency as a whole. The Hollywood fundraisers, the NCAA brackets, the other pop culture stuff.

I would have voted for Bush, if I had known that ZZ Top would definitely perform.

People seem to forget that the White House was trashed at Andrew Jackson's inaugural party.

I don't know that I like it, but not sure what there is to object about it.

Cruikshank had a pithier passage on the topic at hand, so I used it instead. It was a matter of style.

I'm not saying that Heller is not the law of the land, because it is. I'm saying that it doesn't appear to be the landmark case on the 2nd Amendment and gun control that tifosi seems to be implying it is.

As tifosi said, Heller was indeed a landmark case, both on the question of gun laws and for other reasons. We basically have a new (or revived) individual constitutional right. It will take decades of future cases for the precise boundaries of that right to be established.

Interesting; it wasn't a real gun. According to the Guardian, it was some sort of gas pistol that fires pepper spray.

It's cause he's in Bulgaria. Remember, the only place that has "real guns" and a gun homicide problem is the U.S. :pop:

Thankfully it was a fake gun.
