The Inaugural Bawl, Take Two
The Inaugural Bawl is an embarrassing display of partisan politics, lack of self-discipline, whining and moaning, and shameless self-promotion by Democrats or Leftists who are unable to accept that George Bush won re-election by a significant margin. For their foolish action, beneath and beyond the call of duty, these petty people may be earn the Inaugural Bawl Award for performance below the acceptable level of decent human beings.
Questioning Condoleeza Rice about her past involvement in the Bush administration and her future role as Secretary of State is not improper. Using veiled language to call her a liar, and holding up an approval in the Senate that is all but certain is tawdry, cheap, and silly. Senator Barbara Boxer, California Democrat, removed all doubt that she is a petty and petulant Lefty in the confirmation hearing for Condoleeza Rice last week.
For this cheap display of partisan politics, motivated by her inability to accept the results of the election, Barbara Boxer (D- Cal) gets the Inaugural Bawl Award.
For his continuing wishy-washy performance, wanting it both ways, and for his sour-grapes performance on the Rice nomination, John Kerry wins the Inaugural Bawl Award.
