BRISKET, BOOTS AND CUMMERBUNDS

Party hardy, Mr. President -- you deserve a big night out with family, friends, political colleagues and voters who supported you and worked your campaign.

My Texas-style brisket's been in the cooker for 16 hours now and I'll be taking it out at midnight, letting it rest for an hour or so, trying a slice or two before calling it a night, and then finally getting some rest myself. Just seemed like the thing to do today to honor a Texan's re-election to a second term as our nation's president.

We'll have some smoked, BBQ brisket sandwiches tomorrow, and a cold one or two, while we watch your swearing in ceremony and listen to what I expect will be a very inspiring inaugural address to the nation.

CONGRATULATIONS, MR. PRESIDENT !!!
