“Four score and seven weeks after we shot the pool scene in Van Wilder, my agent said to me…”
Yesterday marked the beginning of a whole new era. It was truly a great day for horrible metaphors and inexplicable appearances. What the hell is Kumar doing at the inauguration? Are we really that stupid that we need actors to show up to political events so that Tobey Maguire can clarify that he’s not actually the real hero? I will say this though, after every pause in Obama’s speech I half expected him to say, “Today… is our Independence Day.”
Another thing that would’ve improved the ceremony? Replace the poet lady with Michael Madsen.
