Live Tweeting President Obama’s State of the Union Speech

Well the last time I live tweeted an Obama speech people really seemed to enjoy it so I figured, why not, I’ll take on the State of the Union too. So here you go… all my tweets from last nights speech and from the Republican response given by Bob McDonnell. My point in bla bla translating the two speeches wasn’t necessarily that they were poorly delivered (and actually I think McDonnell did a pretty amazing job in his speech) but, rather, that, like nearly all modern political speeches, they are nearly meaningless rehashing of already known, and even decades old,

A Look Into the Future of Health Care

With Scott Brown giving Republicans their 41st member, the health care reform that was close to passing Congress has hit a major roadblock.

Jim Treacher Saves the Daily Caller

Yes people, you have to give the Daily Caller a chance. Jim Treacher (aka the treach as I am now calling him as of this moment) is a quality blogger who is highly regarded and any project he is involved in deserves our attention and a legitimate chance to impress us. For now (I’ll try to write more in the morning) here is his first post at his new roosting place. It’s classic Sean Medlock as I always say…
