God Bless America

I just witnessed the storied peaceful transfer of power in our nation’s capitol. There were several thoughtful speeches and a recitation of the Beatitudes before Time Magazine’s “Man of the Year” reprised his victory tour speech “I won. You lost.”

Commentators, somewhat taken aback, didn’t immediately know what to make of it but there is no doubt that his loyalist 30 percent were thrilled by his plain fourth grade speaking. For me, and a lot of other people, our new President’s speech was little like a forest of middle fingers.

God bless America.
