Live Inauguration Coverage: Watch Online

live-cnn-inauguration

There are lots of places to watch the inauguration today and Lifehacker put together the ultimate resource; Lifehacker’s Guide to Catching the Inauguration from Anywhere.

This is history in the making, so you don’t want to miss a minute of it. Go through all the various resources and figure out which one you’d like to watch. I already tried the new Ustream app on the iPhone and the connection kept timing out just so you know. I’ve decided to use the CNN video feed myself and I like this one the best so far.

McCain Concession Speech and Obama Acceptance Speech

In case you missed the results last night, which I’m sure almost nobody did, Obama won. Yup! He’s our 44th president of the United States and I for one am very excited to see what he can do to help us get back on our feet. I’m also excited to see if other countries are more accepting of us and begin to see us in a new light.

So you might have stayed up late enough to find out who won, but did you stay up long enough to watch the McCain concession speech or the Obama acceptance speech? They were both great speech’s, so I wanted to post them both here on the site. Check ’em out below when you get some free time today.

Election Words

No doubt about it, this election has been one of the ugliest in history. Mudslinging, twisting of words and comments, and just down right lies came from both canidates. What would all that look like- typographically?

Comically named, This. F*cking. Election. has all the mudslinging and ridiculous terms and stories used throughout this election season.

Fight Against the Smear Campaigns

Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, or Undecided, I know you’re tired of the smear campaigns. Especially now that the elections are right around the corner. I for one, can’t wait for the elections to be over with already, because I’m plain sick of the commercials, junk mail, and random phone calls.

This is where StopTheSmears.com steps in. Stop the Smears hopes to play a role in exposing the methods and goals of the people who smear Democrats, so that the people of America can make their votes based on the real issues.

Stop the Smears actually only fights back against smear campaigns against the Democrats, but I looked around for a site in similar fashion to this for the Republicans, but it only came up with John McCains site. Obviously that site can’t be trusted. One site that I do actively follow that pulls out the facts from both sides though is FactCheck.org.

I recommend visiting both of these site and study them hard before you vote. Unless of course you voted early. It’s still good to know the facts, even if you did vote though.

Joe The Plumber Didn’t Vote

The future is told in this video and it certainly is a bleak one. John McCain has taken his seat in the White House and Obama’s loss is traced back to one voter. Only one voter determined the fate of the United States, and that man is Joe the Plumber. That’s right, the Joe that everyone feels like they know, didn’t vote. Watch the video below to learn more.

It’s that time again

Where has the time gone? If you think about all the huge and significant events that has happened within the last four and eight years, it seems that that amount of time just isn’t large enough to fit it all in. And once again, it’s that time; time to vote. Make a positive change.

Let me apologize ahead of time to all the McCain followers, for this entry is not for you… Design for Obama is a site illustrating different Pro Obama posters designed by 30 graphic designers. You’re able to print the design to proudly display in your cubical, office, home, where ever. There’s also a flickr group created for this site that you’re able to visit and submit your own design. Happy printing! And voting!
