Quote of the Day

Obama's policy proposals were small stuff. More tax cuts for child care -- but discrimination against stay-at-home moms and taxes on 529 college savings accounts. Paid sick leave. Equal pay for women -- on the books already for 52 years. A minimum wage increase. He's all for infrastructure but, in deference to rich donors, will veto the Keystone XL pipeline. -- Michael Barone

Yes, Barone coulda saved me 68 minutes, but if I hadn't watched (or read ThreeSources) I still wouldn't have known that the leader of the House Republicans wore a RINO necktie during the SOTU.

The Speaker had his colors done by a professional. Some are Autumns, some are Winters -- Rep. Boehner was a "Dystopian Post-apocalyptic Summer" and the purple tie was right off the wheel.

Glad I missed it, but I have friends in low places who shared the thumbnail versions.

I've long complained about the applause, especially the standing ovations ("Comrade, I think you are not enthusiastic enough in your applause..."). Someone apparently shared that feeling of mine: http://bit.ly/1BiuxuR
