Happy New Hampshire Primary Day Washington! On this day in 1790, President George Washington delivered our first State of the Union. In 1992, Bush 41 puked on Japanese Prime Minister Miyazawa Kiichi, and, in 2006, Tom DeLay resigned as House Majority Leader.

Happy 41st R Kelly!

  • Washington Post’s Deb Howell writes, “For as long as newspapers have existed, readers have complained that they focus on the negative and critical. Journalists tend to blow that off: That’s what’s news. But when readers are negative toward The Post or its journalists, they often are met with what former Post executive editor Ben Bradlee called ‘the defensive crouch.’ My new year’s resolution for journalists is: Suck it up and forget the abuse. My resolution for angry readers is: Don’t assume malevolence on the part of the reporter or the paper when mistakes are made. Most transgressions are caused by human error or ignorance.”

When the popular Fox News entertainer arrived at the Obama event in Nashua, people turned to him but not always approvingly. ‘Hey O’Reilly,’ yelled a man. When O’Reilly turned he got a single finger salute. A few people approached Bill to shake his hand but the overwhelming sentiment was not favorable. ‘O’Reilly hate monger,’ yelled a woman. A few other people gave him the bird. ‘I hate you Bill,’ yelled a man. ‘You can’t stop us Bill,’ yelled another. I thought someone might brain him with one of those Obama hope signs.”
