is there is a white HUD secretary, but a black AG. 

You’ll have to forgive me a few paroxysms of West Winger joy (for instance: omfg, Josh actually runs the government now!). To be fair, when was the last time your favorite tv show came true? (The Wire doesn’t count.)

I don’t have much to say about the inauguration: it was that rare thing, the planable miracle; also, my toes froze. Roberts’s gaffe, given the decades of strict constructionist ‘tude this country has had shoved down its throat, is too tedious to mention besides in passing, too irritating to deign to joke about.
