Inauguration Blues

Barbara Boxer is not the only one crying about the Big Kerry Loss:

Michael Newdow, America’s most notorious and intolerant atheist, who sued because he did not want his young daughter exposed to the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance, has filed a suit to bar the saying of a prayer at President Bush’s inauguration. The case is tentatively scheduled Jan. 14.

Lovely… and now from the Blogging, Maverick Owning, Blizzard Making, Assault Backing Texan:

Mark Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks owner is urging readers of his Web log ( to contact politicians and tell them to get their priorities straight. In an emphatic missive on his Web site, Cuban criticizes Congress for making what he calls frivolous expenditures and chastises everyone involved with elaborate inaugural events.

“Mr. President, it’s time to show that leadership. It’s time to set an example,” wrote Cuban, who declined to comment further on the subject. “Cancel all but the most basic inauguration requirements.”

President Bush will be inaugurated Jan. 20. That week, he will be feted with the customary black-tie balls, a parade and an assortment of star-powered events. The price tag: about $40 million.

The days-long celebration is paid for with private donations – not public dollars.
