The "magic" has descended

I don't ever remember a new president-elect giving a press conference standing behind a podium with a sign reading "Office of the PRESIDENT-elect", and I've been through Nixon to Carter to Reagan to Bush to Clinton to Bush. It seems I'm not the only one who notices this bit of narcissism. His flair for the dramatic, combined with his mellifluous speeches, melts the hearts of the faithful. It's all part of Obama's transition website.

H.L. Mencken considered the cynic right nine times out of ten. Color me a skeptic.

He covered the new-puppy issue pretty well.

No, really… He probably touched on that topic for a good 5 minutes.
