Today is the State of Trump's Union, er, SOTU speech. While many Representatives are vowing to not attend, and assorted personalities on Twitter are proposing drinking game rules (Hi @mtaibbi, I'm looking at you!), over at my place we are placing bets on the unlikeliest guests! Anyone wanna wager some Quatloos?

Driftglass ... goes to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of his soul the uncreated conscience of the corporate media. So to speak.

The Rectification of Names notes that Howie Kurtz does it the hard (read stupid) way.

Juanita Jean's proposes a Go Fund Me account to help out screwie Louie Gohmert. She's onto something.

Infidel753 gives us a brief on the Satanic Temple, who paradoxically may be the best thing to happen to Church and State separation.

Bonus Track: Fritinancy looks at the origins of the word mulligan as in, Tony Perkins, the president of the conservative Christian Family Research Council, gave noted Forbes magazine enthusiast Donald Trump a mulligan for his (alleged) pay-off of an (alleged) affair with a porn star. It pays to build a better vocabulary, people!
