Obama's inauguration: Freedom rings! (From the pores of Aretha Franklin's enormous bow/hat)

We don’t exactly need an “entertainment-related angle” to blog about the Must Watch of the Week (or the Year?), the inauguration of President Barack Obama. But Aretha’s giant hat is as good an excuse as any. If you haven’t been able to watch today’s coverage on the sly at work, here’s a brief glimpse at the major moments. My favorite: confusion over where to place the adverb “faithfully.” Press play for Obama’s oath and the end of his speech.

What channel are you guys on? Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann’s voices lured me in to MSNBC early on, but right now it’s just way too much footage of a girl hula-hooping. I can watch a Wii commercial for that crap.
