The State of the Audience of the State of the Union
With pictures!

I captured a few stills of my favorite audience shots. Four highlights:

Like Mother-in-Law, Like Daughter-in-Law

A bit over-the-top, isn't it? The apple-by-marriage doesn't fall far from the tree, I guess.

Wink, Wink

A wink or a blink? Your call.

The Printer Cartridges

Do you suppose they sat together on purpose? (From left: Sue "Yellow" Myrick (NC-9), Jo Ann "Red" Davis (VA-1), Jean "Blue" Schmidt (OH-2), and Candice "Beige" Miller (MI-10). Also visible in the second picture is Anne "Green" Northrup (KY-3).1)

You Disgust Me, Liddy

What the camera doesn't show is that right before these shots were taken, Dole leaned over and whispered, "My husband is better at beating cancer than you are."2

1 - I'm not completely sure on the identities of Miller and Northrup. Confirmations and corrections are welcome.
2 - Almost certainly not true.
