Dick Cheney Looking Like A Villain and Rahm Emanuel Making Faces

Okay, before we move on to more serious business here on the Humble Libertarian, we just have to take a moment out for a caption contest. These photos from yesterday's inauguration ceremony are too good to pass up:

First we have former Vice President Dick Cheney looking like a comic book villain:

My caption? "And I'd have gotten away with it too... if it weren't for those meddling kids!"

Then we have White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel making faces and wiggling his fingers in front of his face in a moment of levity (the text is my edit):

Ooh... and here's another good caption: "Time to put away childish things." Please submit more captions for these two pictures in the comment thread.

And this is a really cool satellite photo of the massive crowds at the inauguration. It really gives you a sense of the scale.

And here is a hilarious headline that you bet CNN took down fast!

Tomorrow... in contrast to yesterday's post, in which I was very unreserved about my criticisms and concerns over Barack Obama, I am going to try to say as many positive things as I can about him and my hopes for his administration. Though I believe the positives will be vastly outweighed by the negatives, they still deserve mention and analysis. Yesterday's post was also broad in its criticism- in upcoming posts I plan to analyze the specific aspects of the incoming administration's policies and offer commentary and criticisms.


  1. Rahm Emanuel is despicable and an embarrassment to Israel, Jews, Democrats, and the entire United States. This is the second most powerful man in America? How could Obama appoint an idiot like this?

  2. You know... we heard a ton about this guy during and right after Obama's inauguration, and not a single thing since. I wonder why.
