Am I the only one who thinks this inauguration is a complete and total waste of time, money and effort?
Nobody cares about this event except for the state employees who get the day off and the very few who will make money off the event.
If KY couldn't afford a Christmas tree (or rather, as Beshear calls it, a holiday tree), how can it afford to waste millions on this silly event designed simply to flatter his ego? I think it's a tradition that should end for second-term govs, and second-term presidents for that matter. I can see the idea for a first-timer--but for a second-term now lame duck who isn't going to do anything different than he did the previous four years? Who cares?
This does not even register on the radar of those people who live outside of Frankfort. IMHO, Beshear should've donated the millions this event will cost to the homeless, hungry and unemployed in KY instead.
