Final Note

Obama decides bourbon is fine after all

At his post-election press conference today, President Obama said a whole bunch of nice things about incoming Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. He talked about how he’s looking forward to working with him, including a comment about how he would enjoy a Kentucky bourbon with McConnell. 

Funny, but much funnier were the president’s comments last year at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner about how he ought to make nice with the GOP.

Take this as a comment on how those who don’t remember history can be condemned to repeat it.
