From the Department of Awesomesauce:

President Obama's inauguration will be held on the Martin Luther King holiday, January 21st. Think about it, the first African American president will be sworn in for his second term on the Martin Luther King holiday observance:

The 2013 Presidential Inauguration will be held in Washington DC on Monday, January 21, 2013. By law, the President must take his Oath of Office on January 20th before noon. Since the 20th falls on a Sunday, there will be a private ceremony on that date and the public ceremony will be held the following day. A week of festivities will include the Presidential Swearing in Ceremony, Inaugural Address, Inaugural Parade and a night of Inaugural Balls and galas honoring the elected President of the United States.

The sound you'll hear will be many a GOP head exploding. A "blah" president who got re-elected by an enthusiastic electorate by a wide margin; a "blah" president who will serve a second term; a "blah" president who is making history-- again; a "blah" president will be inaugurated on a day that celebrates another remarkable "blah" man.

And all those people who have been dogwhistling and whining and screaming their fool heads off about"blah" "incompetent" Susan Rice and "blah" President Obama will be watching his inauguration come to pass. Again.

I wonder if they'll be planning another Inauguration Night Conspiracy, as they did back in '09.

If only all these angry, scared, small-minded white people who feel so threatened by not-white people could accept and embrace their fellow Americans, we'd have even more to celebrate.
