Enjoy Your Champagne!

While NPR airs the chants of protestors, the Washington Times compares the cost of this inauguration to previous ones including President Clinton's second inauguration. Guess which one cost more, even in NOMINAL dollars?

The second Clinton inaugural cost $42 million in 1997 dollars ($49.5 million in 2005 dollars). Bush's second is estimated at $40 million.

Thanks to Mr. Drudge for the link.
