Millions turned up to Washington to witness history. HBO exclusively broadcast the inaugural concert at the Lincoln Memorial with acts like U2 and Mary J. Blige . And record numbers tuned in on inauguration day to CNN for exclusive coverage like, “Obama wipes his nose” on the parade viewing stand. And millions more watched the live feed. We can’t remember Washington ever being so cool. What follows are our most unforgettable moments from the inauguration festivities in honor of the 44th President Barack Hussein Obama .

To speak with anyone who’s ever been in close proximity of Sarah Palin for any length of time, there is a constant thread in their commentary: she will say anything, lie about anything, if it is to her own benefit to do so. Much has been said or written about this during the campaign, particularly by The Atlantic’s Andrew Sullivan , so there’s no sense in going over any of this sordid record here.

In a fit of pathos and nauseating self-pity, Karl Rove had the temerity to claim that Washington partisanship is to blame for the failures of the Bush Administration. That pushes the extreme outer limits of hubris and intellectual dishonesty. Rove whining about partisan politics is like a child who murders both parents, then pleads for leniency before the judge because he is an orphan. We can only stutter in astonishment at the sheer audacity of the claim.

From the GREAT STATE OF MAINE… The Framer Speaks Jeffrey Feldman has been an important voice at Daily Kos for more than four years. It was here that he began his popular Frameshop diaries, which led to the creation of his own site at frameshopisopen.com . He’s also the author of Framing the Debate (2007), and Outright Barbarous (2008). Today, against a background of turkeys being slaughtered, C&J has a little heart-to-heart with Jeffrey in our latest installment of Yes, We’re All Staring At YOU!

From the GREAT STATE OF MAINE… Okay, class, settle down… After months of painstaking research and asking around, I now feel reasonably comfortable asserting that Kossack and Recommended Diaries denizen teacherken is in fact a teacher named Ken, and not a “tea cherken.” (This would explain the long pauses by Lipton customer service representatives when asked what a cherken does.) Now that we’ve cleared that up, Ken will now teach you a thing or two in today’s installment of C&J’s never-ending series, Yes, We’re All Staring At YOU!
