Forget the Limbo. The bar is set so low for this president that he has to dig his way under it. That he was merely able to read a speech someone else wrote for him suddenly qualified as “presidential.” People seemed to love the fact that he could read, which is a quality you definitely want to see in a president.

Personally, I couldn’t focus on what he was saying because he was standing there with no clothes, although the Republican side of the hall kept jumping up and applauding the fineness of his raiment. I was also distracted by Torquemada and Tweedledum, who were getting the rear view of their puppet. They kept exchanging barely contained grins of relief as he danced without his strings getting tangled.

The So-Called Ruler of the United States (SCROTUS?) should be held to a higher standard, but maybe that’s just me. I’d gotten used to the idea that the president was supposed to be an honorable man who spoke with eloquence, had strength and compassion, inspired confidence and had more than three working neurons.

But the new president has a dream. He talked about a country with financial strength, low unemployment and fair treatment for all, no matter their race, color or creed. It was a country that commanded respect from other nations and negotiated in good faith with them.

Interestingly, that was more or less the country the previous president had left him. If he’d just sit quietly in the Oval Office and do nothing he could do worse. And he probably will.
