OBAMA FEVER

January 20, 2009

(THE DATE ABOVE IS WRONG! THIS IS REAL: JANUARY 19, 2009. 10:40pm EST)

Dude, seriously, this town in going off.  There are people everywhere, most of them in good moods, and there is a very high amount of horrible Obama themed photoshoped tragedies for sale.  On just about every street corner, there is a folded card table set up with wickedly bad T-shirts, calendars, buttons, bejeweled beanies, scarves, hoodies, etc.

You can even get an Obamalette at the Silver Diner

I take pride in knowing that I have purchased the best of the best, including, an Omaba hand puppet, comic books, air-fresheners, playing cards, mints and action figures. Most of which will be doled out to all of you fine people.

 Here is the chaos inside the one of the big souvenier stores:

 Today, we didn’t do to much other than take the metro into the city (the trains were crowded, but running at high frequencies), walk to the mall, and go to the National Portrait Gallery to see the original HOPE painting by Shepherd Farey.

This was really cool:

read the plates-each from a different state.

 FYI-It was in the mid to low 30’s today, so cold, but apparently not as cold as it was a few days ago. I guess I brought some sunshine with me. Or maybe the yeti gods are being especially nice today.

Here are scenes from the mall today–will be interesting to see how this will look tomorrow.

Well, tomorrow is an early start-6am wake up, a hearty breakfast, and then off to brave the day.

Stay tuned for more updates tomorrow night!

    Do they have a Obama Buritto at the Chipotle? It should taste like HOPE!
