And let it be recorded that Obama’s first act as President was to correct Chief Justice John Roberts, who managed somehow to mangle the 35-word oath of office, misplacing the word faithfully, as in “faithfully execute the office of President …” Roberts then mangled it a second time, Obama raised an eyebrow, and Roberts moved on, a bumpy beginning and something of a metaphor: one of the new President’s functions will be to correct the mistakes of George W. Bush’s benighted tenure.

    And we thought it was Obama bungling! I’m sure we weren’t the only ones — glad Time set us all straight. Lovely.
