I don't have anything against the Beach Boys, but I had to chuckle at the diverging tones in Gov.-Elect Tim Kaine's emails over the last few days.
Friday's email about inauguration press credentials made me envious that a Democrat would enjoy a Williamsburg inauguration:
Thank you for your interest in covering this unique and historic Inauguration. When Governor-elect Tim Kaine takes the oath of office on Saturday, January 14, 2006, he will become only the third
Fine, Kaine's no Henry or Jefferson, but to join that distinguished list is quite an honor for any governor.
Today's email brought that sentiment back to reality. Headlining the "Promise of Virginia" inaugural concert will be the Beach Boys. How underwhelming.
