Atmosphere

I couldn’t get out of work to go to the actual swearing in, but wandering around the city the past few days has been pretty amazing. A lot of uncontrolled giggling and random chanting and running aimlessly around The Mall. DC. is many things, but it is very rarely giddy. The fact that last call for alcohol was extended to 4am this week might have something to do with it.

  1. I liked listening to the beltway crowd describing it last night. “It’s like D.C. has come to the capitol!” Chris Matthews noted, which feels about right.

  2. Matthews is right (something I never say). It’s completely infectious too – everyone has been grinning for days and being polite to each other.

  3. Apparently the spirit took Joe Biden. Were there any men on that platform he DIDN’T make out with?

  5. So it would seem. The tongue was a little much.
