    1:15pm michigan senator debbie stabenow 

    is clearly reading, and sadly she wrote her own speech.

    i always knew michigan was in sad shape, sen. stab(m)enow is as sad as those dilapidated homes i saw in 8 mile.

    my question is, why then does kid rock and eminem refuse to move out here to cali?

    1:18 the mayor of atlanta shirley franklin is exactly what jada pinkett smith is going to look like when she turns 60: thin, stylish, and powerful.

    the flower in her lapel is gigantic. i dont think jada will repeat this mistake.

    mayor franklin just “paraphrased” mlk. time to drink.

    1:23 pm jersey rep bob menendez just said, “my family fled cuba, for this, the greatest democracy in the world.

    drink.

    1:30 california rep robert matsui is blabbering about some shit. he’s old. 63? 64? japanese looking. but he talks out of the side of his mouth and has a weird old timey accent.

    not a japanese accent. but one like jimmy stewart in its a wonderful life.

    it’s freaking me out man.

    hes not reading from the teleprompter. hes reading from a pad.

    1:31pm big apple rep gregory meeks has the mic. half hour in, and a real brotha it laying it out there. nice tie. nice hankie in the suit pocket.

    meeks reads off the center teleprompter only. he squeezes his fists for emphasis.

    i could pass that dude a thousand times and never know he would be a congressman.

    i think thats good.

    he cant say massachusettes, but he says cal i fore nuh with soul.
