The State of My Understanding of The State of the Union

I'll confess up front, I didn't watch the entire SotU, and what I did get to see was influenced by the scotch I was drinking. That said, I have kept an eye on twitter and the blogs and I think I have the gist of it. To those asking WTF!?!, I hope to provide you with an adequate summation of the President's SotU speech.

The President plans to inspire hopeful salmon by sending them to space with solar shingles in what has been dubbed: "Project Sputnik - Failure is an acceptable success".

P.S. Yep, I crawled out from under my rock for that. Just read the links, they're worth it.

P.P.S. Since I tagged this with "Sarah Palin", maybe someone would like a book of hers? No pressure, it's just ... well, filthy lucre!!

Olivia Gets Her First Johnny Cash CD

"The Johnny Cash Children's Album" circa 1975.

Here is Olivia's favorite song from the album, "I got a boy and his name is John"

It wasn't simpler times back then, but people sure found simpler ways to be happy. I hope I can spend plenty of time listening to this album with my family.

A few things to round out your day. * Update*

I am trying something new, I am going to put together a set of links at the end of the day with a few quotes lifted from each. This will be focused on candidates or potential candidates for either the 2012 or 2016 Presidential election.

Tonight, we'll start with ...

Chris Christie

"Muslim Picked For New Jersey Bench"

Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday that one of his seven nominees for Superior Court judgeships would be a lawyer who represented many detainees swept up by the government in the post-9/11 dragnet.

The lawyer, Sohail Mohammed, worked in the aftermath of the attacks to try to foster trust between American Muslims and law enforcement, particularly federal officials. He is a board member of the American Muslim Union. Mr. Christie, a United States attorney, was a regular guest at that group’s annual Ramadan dinner and spoke highly of Mr. Mohammed’s work.

Mr. Mohammed was on former Gov. Jon S. Corzine’s short list of potential judicial appointees, but he was not nominated. He would serve on the court in Passaic County. His appointment requires confirmation by the State Senate.

I did a quick search on Sohail Mohammed, and from what I read, I am not impressed.

*Update* As a friend noted in an email, the real red flag here is Jon Corzine's blessing.*/Update*

Now on to ...

Haley Barbour

Two Minutes Hate
Ok, it's FOUR minutes, double your pleasure, err, hate.

Via Gateway Pundit

Palin Death Wish Tweets Re Tucson Shooting from Legal Insurrection on Vimeo.

The sad/maddening thing? This behavior is, for the most part, the norm. On any given day you can peruse twitter, facebook, the left wing blogosphere, and various other news sources and find statements like these. They are not always this blatant, but it is there none the less.

The greatest disinfectant is still sunlight, I hope, in my own small way, that I have drawn back the curtains to let the light in.

Heh, Kittens

I got this in an email today, I figured I would share. ;)

A pretty little girl named Suzy was standing on the sidewalk in front of her home. Next to her was a basket containing a number of tiny creatures; in her hand was a sign announcing FREE KITTENS.

Suddenly a line of big black cars pulled up beside her. Out of the lead car stepped a tall, grinning man.

"Hi there little girl, I'm President Obama. What do you have in the basket?" he asked.

"Kittens," little Suzy said.

"How old are they?" asked Obama.

Suzy replied, "They're so young, their eyes aren't even open yet."

"And what kind of kittens are they?"

"Democrats," answered Suzy with a smile.

Obama was delighted. As soon as he returned to his car, he called his PR chief and told him about the little girl and the kittens.

Recognizing the perfect photo op, the two men agreed that the president should return the next day; and in front of the assembled media, have the girl talk about her discerning kittens.

So the next day, Suzy was again standing on the sidewalk with her basket of "FREE KITTENS," when another motorcade pulled up, this time followed by vans from ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN.

Cameras and audio equipment were quickly set up, then Obama got out of his limo and walked over to little Suzy.

"Hello, again," he said, "I'd love it if you would tell all my friends out there what kind of kittens you're giving away."

"Yes sir," Suzy said. "They're Republicans."

Taken by surprise, the president stammered, "But... but... yesterday, you told me they were DEMOCRATS"

Little Suzy smiled and said, "I know. But today, they have their eyes open."
