Inauguration Satire

The announcement that Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States while placing his hand on the Bible used by Abraham Lincoln resulted in frenzied activity, as activists scrambled to determine the views of the 16th President on gay marriage.

"Our lack of information about Lincoln's views on gay marriage, or how he would have urged people to vote on Proposition 8, is disturbing," said one gay activist. "First Warren, now this unknown. We supported Obama, and this is the thanks we get." According to one source inside the GLBT movement, leaders are incensed that they were not consulted about the decision to use the Bible of someone whose views were unknown. "We would have thought we would have a chance to veto a decision of this magnitude," he said.
