The New York Times has a live YouTube feed with no commentators. Very good indeed.

I know that whatever Michelle wears or does with her look we are supposed to immediately fawn over...but the bangs have to go. NOT her best fashion idea

Dammit! Thanks for the tip, @3. I figured YouTube would just be a raw feed.

Lamar Alexander is a tool. The only "good" thing about this is that it's a peaceful transition?

I really wish he would have used the phrase horses and bayonets instead of muskets and militias.

Nice speech by "Lamar!" When those Southern boys use their powers for good, rather than evil, they can be quite effective.

Nonetheless, I wish they played all of the Union Army marching songs today. Especially that one brought to contemporary attention by Ken Burns, and echoed by "Lincoln", "The Battle Cry of Freedom". Just to remind those traitors that they lost.

@13 He's a tool indeed. Peaceful transition distinguishes US from all other countries in the world? If only those Swiss and Japanese would knock it off with those constant violent government overthrows.

"They sure are paid to fill the audio tracks of live video feeds, aren't they? This is some vapid shit."

Which is why the Cable Gods offer us C-SPAN with minimal commentary.

I can't believe Beyonce was able to continue lip-syncing after her ear piece fell out!

She definitely brought it girlfriend.
