I'm sorry, but what the funk was that?? Are we ruled by royalty now? I don't remember voting Obama prom king, let alone actual king, though with the DJ and near make-out session on the dance floor, it was maybe closer to the former. Awk-ward.
So that's what they call a neighborhood ball? Wall to wall tuxes, plasma screens and R&B stars? No burgers... No icy tubs of cold beer and sodas... Not even a bounce house for the neighborhood kids. (Speaking of which, I've been to D.C. When Stevie Wonder is the only disabled black man in the house, it ain't no neighborhood ball.)
And did you catch all the Cirque du Soleil action gyrating from the silken ceilings? Guess I was on the money with my "Bread and Circuses" post. And by money, I mean your tax money, which I guarantee was being spent in some capacity on this cavalcade of bling.
I hope to find more footage later, but the first couple's "Enchantment Under the Sea" slow dance is up now at least. Hold onto your lunch.
