Lisa,

 

Thank you for posting your site on the day of Obama's inauguration!! Most of my fav single run USA websites took the day off and I was so disappointed. You are amazing.

After 8 years, you were so right about Bush and the GOP. I sent you a small donation via paypal.

How do YOU feel today, the day after your country has a brand new and very bright president?

Thank you, Geoff.

 

After eight years of spelling relief, R-O-L-A-I-D-S, today the sky is bluer, the sun is brighter and the acid reflux has disappeared whenever I view a picture of Bush.

 

And yes, it feels so good to be proud of America again.

Dear Lisa,

 

Our national nightmare is over. I pray Obama prosecutes anyone who broke our laws. If he doesn't, we'll have another Watergate, Iran-Contra and BUSHgate!!!!!

Obama Reaches Out To Arabs and Muslims

 

Arabs and Muslims gave the benefit of some doubt on Wednesday to U.S. President Barack Obama's offer of "a new way forward" with the Muslim world, but many said it would take deeds rather than words to convince them.

After eight years of President George W. Bush, who invaded two Muslim countries and gave strong support to Israel, Arabs and Muslims watched Obama's inaugural speech on Tuesday closely for any sign that U.S. policy toward them will change.

A Shout Out From the Antarctica

And during the inauguration, Washington, DC, set up prostitution-free zones. Areas where there is no prostitution? Isnít that supposed to be the whole city, huh? I mean, is Washington so corrupt now we just rope off the areas where people actually follow the law?- Jay Leno

Former Vice President Cheney was in a wheelchair at the inauguration. His aides say he pulled a muscle while moving boxes yesterday. But I donít know if I believe that. In fact, if you look closely, you can see the reason heís in a wheelchair is because his feet turned back into hooves a day before they were supposed to. That was not as it was agreed upon in the pact.- Jimmy Kimmel
