Obama Day was nearly a disaster for so many reasons. US Chief Justice John Roberts succumbed to stage fright and fluffed his lines – that might have been disastrous.
But perspective please! This wasn’t a life or death situation. Oh, no. But these were. From Robert Byrd collapsing and Ted Kennedy having another funny turn while attending the same lunch, and Dick ‘Strangelove’ Cheney appearing in a wheelchair.
But we’re pleased to report that all are still with us. Best of health for 2009 lads!
PS. Describing anyone as ‘emotional’ is hack speak for ‘pissed’. Describing anyone as ‘tired and emotional’ is hack speak for ‘totally pissed’. So on review when Robert Byrd’s ‘emotional’ episode was later linked to non-medical related issue, we’re confident he’ll just sleep it off. But best wishes to Ted and Dick…
