      The local Fox newscasters are geeked! And they’re going IN on Corker — saying they’re surprised PBO didn’t dump him out of Air Force One. LOL!

        I’m sorry I missed that! That sounds hilarious. Came to the link too late for that burn. I feel like such a geek, got one computer linked to the wreg.com news link and another computer on the fox link. Can’t wait for his speech. Ants in my pants! Love PBO 🙂

    Great, great speech.

    The President:

    *** I’m inspired by YOU ***

    The Valedictorian:

    As the one who introduces the commencement speaker of today I am supposed to dig up interesting statistics about him, like …. where he was born { raucous laughter ]
