    Now I understand the “The Stages of Spray Tanning” comments that have been floating around.

    @Gromitt Gunn:

    I like the Neapolitan ice cream joke.

    Boehner being strawberry.

  3. Matt says:

    I laughed

    Ooh! Ooh! Caption contest!

    “I got you babe”
    “Where’s a babe?”
    “What’s a babe?”

    @jd: Which of these guys would you rather have a beer with?

  6. Greg says:

    I’m also curious about what that little back and forth was between Biden and Boehner during the SOTU. It seemed good natured enough, but alas, I’m not a lip reader.

    I mean I laughed, but later I saw how closely Biden’s smile there resembles Bob “Creepy Uncle” Filner’s.

    I think it’s the almost Kubrickian downward tilt of the head that gets me.
