In quoting Einstein, Mitch McConnell alienates teaparty base, skeptical of science and "the whole Jew thing." McConnell was able to read into the future and predict the insanity of the president's speech, saying, "What is surprising is the president's apparent determination to apply the same government-driven policies that have already been tried and failed. The definition of insanity, as Albert Einstein once famously put it, is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. Frankly, I can't think of a better description of anyone who thinks the solution to this problem is another stimulus. The first stimulus didn't do it. Why would another one?" McConnell was also able to travel back in time and make the stimulus not work.
Boehner and his fellow Republicans refuse to applaud Obama's radical socialist statement that "Every child deserves a great school." And while they differ on policy, Obama, Boehner and Biden have conference call before joint session to coordinate pastel ties.
New Mexico Governor says "Do as I say, not as my grandparents did." Republican Susana Martinez has tried to repeal the law allowing undocumented workers to have drivers licenses and opposed the dream act, saying "It is not comprehensive reform to put people who are here illegally, who violated the law, and put them in front of the line for those folks who have been waiting and doing all the right things to come to the United States, to come here legally, and/or to become a citizen. We cannot allow those folks to just jump the line." I guess Martinez would "grandfather in" her own grandfather since, as she just revealed in an interview on Spanish television, her grandparents "arrived without documents, especially my father's father."
Joe Walsh Boycotts president's speech & reads it and projects it on a big screen instead. Refusing to be a political prop, Walsh, the deadbeat dad who owes his ex-wife over $100,000 in child support and lecture the president on spending, set up a small-business forum last night. The Daily Herald reports that "While people watched the speech live on a large screen in the center's auditorium, Walsh was sequestered in an anteroom, where he later said he was reading a copy of Obama's remarks. Moments after Obama ended his speech, Walsh emerged and spoke to the media outside the building."
Viewers of GOP debate confused by homoerotic tension between anti-marriage equality nominees Rick Perry and Mitt Romney. Perry and Romney have signed the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) pledge, vowing that if elected they would push for a federal same-sex-marriage ban, nominate strict Constitutionalist judges, defend DOMA and investigate the "harassment" of traditional marriage advocates. Yet it was undeniable that political and sexual tension were in the air between the two strapping tanned governors.
