Before W takes to the SOTU stage, here's a re-cap of today's noteworthy items:
Dude, Where's Our Cash?
Its the question the Capitol Hill Jackass Caucus is asking Howlin' Mad Howie "I Have A Scream" Dean. The Jackass account has about $5.5 million in it, compared to the $34 million in the Republican coffers.
Even with Dem math, that is a big deficit.
That's Justice Alito, thank you very much
Samuel Alito was confirmed as the nation's 110th SCOTUS Justice, much to the chagrin of the Senate Jackass Caucus, the Daily Kos, and Scotch Kennedy. Kos congratulates his troops on their efforts that led up to the defeat.
His rallying cry? More Senate Jackasses.
Yeah, we need more people like Scotch Kennedy in the Senate. His drunken rambling was so incoherent, it bore striking resemblance to his campaign speech of 1996 - which audio specialists have never been able to decipher.
And finally, on a more serious note, Coretta Scott King, widow of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. died today. Godspeed, Coretta.
