A-Block (1:43) SPECIAL COMMENT: Before he begins tonight's State of the Union Address, President Biden should pull his aviators out of his pocket and slap them on, reach under the lectern and pull out a shredded Chinese balloon and drape it in front of himself, and reach under again and produce an AIM-9X Sidewinder Missile and rest it on his shoulder.

It's ridiculous hyperbole of course. But how much MORE ridiculous than Bush's Flight Suit and Mission Accomplished speech? Democrats have no clue how stupid half the country (or more) really is, and how easily that half can be manipulated by stunts, theater, shiny objects, crotch bulges in flight suits, braggadocio, nonsense, outright lies, and other tactics Republicans mastered decades ago.

How stupid are they? When Karine Jean-Pierre reminded reporters they'd been given "Tick Tocks" (journalistic jargon for minute-by-minute timelines), The Daily Caller and Fox News both jumped to the asinine conclusion that the secrets of the nation were being distributed on TIK-TOK. This is how dumb they are, and they are not getting less so.

Bring a Sidewinder with you, Mr. President.

B-Block (18:50) POSTSCRIPTS TO THE NEWS: Did a Federal Judge just notice a flaw in the SCOTUS overturn of Roe-V-Wade that might reinstate it? Samuel Alito's Mom's Abortion Clinic? And Flaco seems about to check back in to his old home. (21:48) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: Elon Musk, joke plagiarist, fake news spreader, safety disaster; Confirmation that NewsMax wanted to raise its price to DirecTV from $0 to $13,000,000. And the Bill Maher numbers are in and - guess what - he did not make the slightest difference in CNN's implosion.

C-Block (28:34) EVERY DOG HAS ITS DAY: Pandora, in Philadelphia (29:47) THINGS I PROMISED NOT TO TELL: It's basically the anniversary of the day the geniuses at MSNBC would've lost Maddow to CNN because Larry King offered her $250 and unbeknownst to me we weren't paying her anything.
