We'll be liveblogging right here and livetweeting @indecison President Obama's third State of the Union address — as well as the Republican and Tea Party responses from Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and Herman Cain respectively — tonight starting at 9/8c.
Some previews of tonight's address seems to have made their way online, but I haven't gotten around to reading them yet. I'm assuming that it's just going to be a bunch of quotes from Saul Alinsky's writings and maybe some instructions for keeping your bomb makings dry in damp revolutionary conditions.
You know, the usual stuff.

If Mitt Romney was hoping to drop his tax returns into the news cycle on the day of the President's State of the Union address as a tactical attempt to keep his nearly-Kerry-like tax rate from reverberating too strongly through the news cycle, he probably ended up choosing the wrong SOTU address with which to try his luck…
President Barack Obama will seek to frame an election-year State of the Union address on Tuesday in starkly populist terms by emphasizing the inequality in a tax system that allows the wealthy to pay a lower rate than middle-class Americans.
His message will contrast with the release of tax records by Mitt Romney, a potential Republican rival and one of the wealthiest men to ever run for the White House. The records show Romney paid a lower rate than many top wage earners.
Oof! What's the exact opposite of a jackpot called again?
While we're on the subject, here's some footage the White House just released of the President pretending to be working on tonight's speech for the cameras…

Tune into NBC tonight at 9/8c and join us right here and @indecision as we liveblog and livetweet the 17th — 17th!!! — Republican primary debate live from the University of South Florida in Tampa.
I'm pretty sure they covered most of the important stuff during the previous 32 hours of debating. So, at this point, we're all just watching to see who the first candidate is to give in and bite one of his rivals' ears off, right?
What are they even waiting for at this point? I'm pretty certain that the first person to draw actual blood will become the automatic nominee. (Unless it's Ron Paul. If he does it, it doesn't count.)
