Where's The Beef?

All America Is Asking

Clara Peller's classic advertising question regurgitated at Taco Bell.

The meat of President Obama's 2011 State of the Union speech.

“Very soft language all the way through. Gene [Robinson] said his language transcended our previous political vocabulary – to me it transcended it so far, that I don’t know what it meant through most of it. What does ‘out-innovate’ mean? There is no government program that’s being discussed there, so his intent is for us to not know what it means.”
