And the band played on

With this triumphal, spare-no-expense, invitation-only ("Keep out: this means you!") inaugural, Bush and his minions confirm what many of us have felt all along:

Not my president.

"This is a civic liturgy," said George Will on ABC's This Week, "This is where they reward people who pay the bills and do the work."  What a cozy conflation of religion and cronyism.  How very Bush.

Whatever happened to, "With malice toward none, with charity for all."

I guess Bush isn't your great-great-grandfather's gay Republican president.

Not my president.

But make no mistake, this is still my country.
