My Best of Awards: The State of the Union

Loved the speech last night. Here are my fav parts

Best Shout Out: The one to teachers, and future teachers.

Here in America, it's time we treated the people who educate our children with the same level of respect. In fact, to every young person listening tonight who's contemplating their career choice: If you want to make a difference in the life of our nation; if you want to make a difference in the life of a child - become a teacher. Your country needs you.

Best Smile: Joe Biden grinning like a proud parent listening to his kid give the valedictorian speech.

Best Metaphor: Sputnik. Brilliant. Would love to know who came up with that one.
Half a century ago, when the Soviets beat us into space with the launch of a satellite called Sputnik, we had no idea how we’d beat them to the moon. The science wasn’t there yet. NASA didn’t even exist. But after investing in better research and education, we didn’t just surpass the Soviets; we unleashed a wave of innovation that created new industries and millions of new jobs.
This is our generation’s Sputnik moment.

Best Joke: The lox joke! The President made a lox joke! Unless he was implying that the Interior and Commerce Departments are getting high?

The Interior Department is in charge of salmon while they’re in fresh water, but the Commerce Department handles them in when they’re in saltwater. And I hear it gets even more complicated once they’re smoked.

Best Way to watch the Speech: While playing State of the Union bingo. You win when he says certain phrases like tough, efficient, or bipartisan. Good job Penn.
