Obamanoxious

It's interesting. For some reason, I childishly assumed things would feel immediately different when Obama took office. Things are buzzing...life has a different aura, but today at work I remember forgetting about that aura, and caring more about erythroleukemia than the fact that I may or may not be getting another stimulus check.

This remarkable episode of Frontline aired yesterday and I watched it again today. I found it to be almost obscenely candid about the life and arrogance of our new Commander-In-Chief. Of particular note are the somewhat subversive yet coyly ironic comments of Ben Wallace-Wells. He comes across like an asshole, but then again, so do I, especially when I feel like my cats are hotter than I am.
