Both John Boehner and Mitch McConnell will be part of this meeting. Boehner is in charge of the welcoming committee and McConnell has been given responsibility for refreshments.

I'd hope McConnell has a couple of pounds of potasium cyanide in his possession. It would be dumping some chlorine into the gene pool.

Well, that means the refreshments will be screwed up.

President Obama is scheduled to meet with labor and progressive leaders today at the White House to discuss the fiscal cliff and overall economic strategy moving into his second term. The meeting will take place behind closed doors and the press isn't invited. Exactly who will be there?
