It all started when the Sergeant-at-Arms stepped up to announce the President.
You know exactly what he's gonna say. We all do. We see it every year.
And I cracked a smile. And I could see, back in the entrance hallway, the President grinning widely. And I knew.
Heh. He's smiling about the same thing. LOL.
A short while later, President Obama is handing copies of his speech to the Vice President and the Speaker of the House. I'm talking big fat interoffice mail envelopes. Biden hefts it like it's a
big effing deal gold leaf. Boehner sizes up his copy like it's a court summons. LOL.
Then comes the fine moment when John Boehner - that's Speaker John, if you're nasty - introduces the President of the United States. Borrowing a fine line from The Shawshank Redemption, the colossal weenie even manages to sound magnanimous! LOL
There was a non LOL early on. The cameras were turned to the empty chair reserved for Representative Giffords. Then some idjit had to pick THAT moment to slide on past.
Still - the Arizona rep right there.. his look of disgust and waving the interloper through quickly was kinda LOL-ish.
There are more, many more LOLs. Some in the speech, some in the reactions.
What were some of your LOL moments from last night?
Keep it gentle, people. If you want knife fights there are plenty of other diaries to choose from. :)
