State of emergency

So... the Obamessiah's inauguration is so expensive that GWB had to declare a state of emergency in DC so that millions more can be spent on it. I guess I agree with that characterization of the event, though...

The current estimate of the inauguration's cost is $150 million, sneaking up on four times the cost of GWB's second inauguration in 2005 ($42.3 million). The crickets you hear now were drowned out four years ago by the enraged, self-righteous howls of indignation at expenses dwarfed by what it's costing to set up The One to "rule" us.
