Booker T Jones with Drive-By Truckers - Grammy Winner

I've been telling folks 2010 was going to be THE year. Best January ever.

Congrats to Booker T and Drive-By Truckers (also that Neil Young dude. He may go places one day) on winning the Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental for Potato Hole!

His name is 'Rip Torn, for gods sake. He should be holding up banks every weekend, then escorting himself to lock-up to sleep it off a la this guy.

'Rip' Torn Charged With Breaking Into A Bank, Carrying Loaded Handgun, Drunk:

"SALISBURY, Conn. � Actor Elmore 'Rip' Torn has been charged with breaking into a Connecticut bank and carrying a loaded handgun while intoxicated."

And, Obama did dominate on Friday. Let's see if this is an actual change or just a blip then back to the same.

Cameras Roll As Obama Schools GOP:
"He rebuked a questioner who insisted that the monthly deficit is higher now than Bush's annual deficit. 'That's factually just not true,' he said. 'And you know it's not true.' He lampooned Republican lawmakers seated in front of him for portraying his health care legislation as 'some Bolshevik plot.' He mocked Republicans for railing against the stimulus package and then showing up at 'the ribbon-cuttings for some of these important projects in your communities.' And he did it all while calling for 'a tone of civility instead of slash and burn will be helpful.'"

Obama Reprimands GOP: Stop Saying ‘This Guy’s Doing All Kinds Of Crazy Stuff…To Destroy America’

Yes, accountability is a bitch. The camera's were the only problem for the Republicans. True patriots, they are.

Republicans dismayed by Obama’s strong performance, say it was a ‘mistake’ to let cameras roll.:
"RUSSERT: Tom Cole — former head of the NRCC, congressman from Oklahoma — said, “He scored many points. He did really well.” Barack Obama, for an hour and a half, was able to refute every single Republican talking point used against him on the major issues of the day. In essence, it was almost like a debate where he was front and center for the majority of it. … One Republican said to me, off the record, behind closed doors: “It was a mistake that we allowed the cameras to roll like that. We should not have done that.”"
