@weejee: Being of A Certain Age, I grew up with the Kingston Trio version…

Just got home and turned on the SOTU. What’d I miss?

@mellbell: I’m watching The Simpsons. I just can’t do the STFU this year.

@mellbell: Biden finger-shooting someone in the audience. That’s about it.

Boehner’s got a great “Just wait until 2017, assholes” look going.

Maybe it’s my mood, but that was really flat. Gets even flatter as MSNBC fawns over it.

@mellbell: @nojo: @¡Andrew!:
Watching last night’s Colbert and Daily Show on the 7 pm replay. The snippets of the speech I heard on the drive home were so pedantic to make Bill Clinton happy (new tablets for the schoolchildren) that I switched to listen to the nightly “Get the Led Out” of Led Zepplin songs on The Bone. (Yes that’s the name of the metal/hard rock station in SF).

@SanFranLefty: Daily Show hit it out of the park last night.

How about all of those Illuminati symbols during the Grammys? Jeebus, they’re not even trying anymore.

@SanFranLefty: Yeah, I can’t listen to Bamz lie his ass off again. Still, it’s catchier than telling 80% of Americans that this country no longer has anything to offer them, ’cause the Corporations and the 1% hoovered it all up. Whoops! How the hell did that happen? He couldn’t state the obvious, even if he wanted to. That little bit of truth-telling would make him the newest Zapruder film star.

@nojo: OMG, I’m still howling about how obvious yet hilarious it is to rhyme “Hannity” and “humanity”

@¡Andrew!: Yeah, there’s that. There’s some article going around the Tubez/Book of Faces about whether George W. Bush will be the last Republican president ever b /c the Repubs will fracture and implode like the Whigs 150 years ago. All I could think of w/r/t the question was, “No, Hillbot would be the last Republican president.” Sad when you miss the progressive politics of Dick Nixon.

@SanFranLefty: I like those bits where you don’t see it coming, even when it’s coming. Sure, quick phone call to Nathan Lane, grab some multiculti shots on the streets, that works just fine. And then, Wham! Jersey Boys.

@SanFranLefty: “Sad when you miss the progressive politics of Dick Nixon.”
