"Man of the People," Barack Obama, yet again
shows his disdain
for the common man. Rights to broadcast his inauguration have been awarded to HBO, a premium cable channel. I would suspect that many of those people who he endlessly cajoled to give him small campaign
contribution ("C'mon, everybody has five dollahs")
won't be able to see Inauguration Week on TV. Nice, huh?
UPDATE: NBC Chicago Channel 5 has live streaming coverage
of the Inauguration over the Internet!
