I’m at home today with a wicked sinus headache and cold, but thanks to the wonders of technology, I have ample options for coverage of the 2008 inaugural celebrations in Washington D.C. welcoming Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States. Right now, I’m listening to the BBC news hour streaming on MichiganRadio. I thought I’d mark the day with my favorite bit of campaign kitsch, “There’s No One as Irish as Barack O’Bama” by the Corrigan Brothers. It’s catchy, witty, cheerful . . . and as an extra bonus Hanna finds it deeply disturbing ;).
Enjoy inauguration day!
