Skeleton of an inaugural address

Barbara Wallraff's post yesterday was hilarious!

She quotes a former presidential speechwriter:

The kabuki of the typical inaugural can be broken down into specific set pieces; the thoughts arranged in a comforting sequence that would have been instantly familiar one hundred, even two hundred, years ago.

And he proceeds to list the ten points that every new president under the sun has used. It cracked me up so much that my roommate asked what was so funny.

And did she think it was funny as well?

Yes she did. Maybe she didn't appreciate it quite as much as I did, but she did see the hilarity. :-P
