Stephen Green drunk-blogged President Trump's speech tonight. A few highlights:
Here comes the Cabinet. And don't think for one moment that SecDef Mattis doesn't have a plan for killing every last one of them.

If you can['t] stand up and applaud Harley, then just whip out your CPUSA card for everyone to see.

...if you listen without prejudice (hat tip to the late, great George Michael for that phrase), then you just heard the most Reaganesque [speech] since The Gipper himself.

And sitting there in front of the man giving it was the most conservative cabinet assembled since... since I don't know when. Maybe in my lifetime. Maybe longer than that.
Update: Trump's budget cuts are "dead on arrival", says Sen Chuck Schumer.

Oh, wait. That statement didn't come from Schumer; it came from Lindsey Freakin' Graham.

For years, RINOs like Graham and John McCain fancied themselves the face of the Republican Party (God knows, that may actually have been the case). But they are being so massively upstaged by newly-minted Republican Donald Trump that one can't help thinking that a considerable part of their sniffish disdain is due to wounded vanity.

Hey, you people in South Carolina, how many times have I got to tell you: never, ever trust a politician who looks like Eleanor Roosevelt, even if the politician is (allegedly) male.

With any mention of Graham or McCain, the first thing I think of is Rush's 'Brokeback Mountain' parody* starring the squishy Senators. Helps me keep their squishiness in perspective.

*actually done by comedian Paul Shanklin.

Speaking the name that cannot be spoken amongst Democrats and the rest of the Left, "Radical Islamic Terrorism" was ballsie. Some of the Dems probably came close to fainting.

The rush by the Democrats to exit was like a religious festival in India.

Why the white jackets? I thought white was verboten. Even the lady with the rate disease was wearing one. It's hard to keep up. And what were the blue buttons?

Sheila Jackson Lee employed the Groucho line, "Whatever it is, I'm against it."

Why was Justice Ginsberg absent? Why wasn't the First Lady announced?

I saw the picture of Nancy Pelosi's face when Trump announced repeal and replace of Obamacare. Sour doesn't come close to describing her expression, and I reveled in it.

Someone should point out to various Senators:
"All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills."

I've always thought of Lyndsey as more of a Little Lord Fauntleroy type.

I can't figure out the women wearing white.
In Cuba, Ladies in White are protestors against a commie dictatorship.
Nancy wearing white in protest is some sort of funhouse version of that.

Veeshir: Exactly right about the women in white in Cuba. I was talking to a friend of mine at work, who is generally pretty well informed, and he didn't know what the domestic prog women-in-white thing was all about either.

Veeshir: Yes, I've seen your photoshop of Graham as Little Lord Fauntleroy - if it is a photoshop. It looks...perfect.
