Barack deplaning Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base, three hours ago.  

As you know Barack and Michelle moved to Washington D.C. this weekend in order to enroll Sasha and Malia into their new school.  

The following is a photo essay of Barack's journey.  I hope you enjoy it.

► Man of the People: with the ground crew before departing Chicago.

► The military loves him.  I so love how the military is now a part of our base.

► Barack's temporary wheels until the tyrant leaves in 16 days (a 757 used by Cheney and Laura Bush).

► Speaking to the press, Barack revealed that he choked up with emotion as he left Chicago, his home of 25 years.

► Arriving at Andrews, he was warmly greeted by Air Force Captain Kerri Alexander, Director of Protocol, who brought along her daughter to meet our President.

► Phew!  I'm fired up and ready to go!


Bouns Coverage

Earlier today, SusanG reviewed the Sean Penn movie, Milk.

Here's a hilarious clip of homophobe Anita Bryant getting pied (when this happened, my mom couldn't stop cheering).

► Continuing with pie night, here's war criminal William Kristol getting a make over.

► Not to be outdone, students at Western Michigan University tagged Imperial Wizard Pat Buchanan after one of his racist diatribes.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
