So my nine year old comes home from school…Catholic school…yesterday and she says that the teachers hooked up a television in the cafeteria for the Inauguration.

They were given the option of going over to watch it or staying at their ordinary tables. My daughter said she wasn’t interested and stayed with a few friends and ate her lunch.

But she said that when Barack Obama was inaugurated a few of the teachers started applauding.

Now look, I’m pleased that for the first time in our country an African American is President but there’s no way I’m breaking out into applause over this guy becoming President. I mean, this is a Catholic school and I’ve got teachers applauding Obama in the cafeteria? I don’t know. Not liking this. At all.

I wish him success. I’ll pray for him. But there’s no way I’m applauding.

Am I overreacting here?
