Inauguration Day Blues

Just heard a couple of interesting things on NPR this morning regarding the Inauguration Day "festivities" and various groups complaining about not getting enough permits or real estate to host their activities. To paraphrase a representative from a local pro-Bu$h group, who I will not name in order to not give them any more publicity:
Groups like A.N.S.W.E.R. and ThinkPink have allied themselves with Saddam Hussein and the terrorists. Therefore, giving them permits is like giving Saddam and the terrorists access to the Capitol.
Uh, huh.

On another equally sad note, check out the inauguration packages some hotels are offering. When asked about whether hotels jack up prices during inaugruation week, one hotel representative (also on NPR) stated, "we're not price gouging, we're simply charging what the market will bear." Uh, huh.

Oh yeah, in the "wtf was he thinking" department...
