In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Biden inauguration to be “80% virtual”

Not sure how you quantify an inauguration, but you get the idea.

According to the Washington Examiner:

President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration will be mostly virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Rep. Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, who is one of five co-chairs for the inauguration, said on Tuesday that the Jan. 20 event will be 80% virtual.

“Look, we know what we’re in, and Joe Biden admitted very clear that he is going to lead by precept and example,” Clyburn said on Morning Joe. “And so we will be setting an example with this inauguration. It is going to be what we might call a hybrid. He’ll take the oath in the traditional way, but all of the inaugural festivities are going to be 80% — what you call virtual.”

He revealed that the co-chairs have not figured out exactly how Biden will be sworn in, but said he thinks the former vice president will take the oath at the Capitol Building, like his predecessors.

  1. Lets save a bundle and have Biden do it from his basement.
    Also: out of an abundance of caution the current POTUS & FLOTUS will view the inauguration remotely, citing science. Wink wink.

  2. Sounds like his empty suit campaign. Maybe we can mail in our reactions to the festivities and count the results till the wee hours of the morning.
