Do Not Look Directly Into the Sun God

I’ve got to steal this bit from Bob Harris because it’s so damn bizarre.

[At the inauguration]… parade performers will have security escorts to the bathroom, and they’ve been ordered not to look directly at President Bush or make any sudden movementswhile passing the reviewing stand.

“Do not look directly at the president?” What the fuck?

And as Bob points out, Civil War re-enactors will be part of the parade. “How, pray tell, do you re-enact the Civil War without making any sudden movements?”

  4. Are the Civil War buffs going to wear Red and Blue instead of Blue and Grey? Because then I see the point…

  5. Please, please, let the South win in this Civil War re-enactment. Then I can finally laugh myself to death.

  6. Also, if you are watching on television, you should not look directly at W.

  7. I think they were warning people for their own benefit… It’s sort of like looking into the sun… If you stare at G.W. for too long you will go blind… It’s a fact!!
