    Silently Expolsive…

    The best real moment of the night.

    “Wonder Twins!”

    (yeah, we’re all wondering)

    AA loves the Gawker. (And sister blog Jalopnik for us car nuts.)

    That’s what class looks like. Well done.


  6. - Stooges - Wednesday, Feb 13, 13 @ 8:28 am:

    What a genuine moment, too few of these are shown to the public.


  7. - zatoichi - Wednesday, Feb 13, 13 @ 8:40 am:

    Nice.


  8. - wndycty - Wednesday, Feb 13, 13 @ 8:53 am:

    Its an awesome moment but Mark Kirk just guaranteed himself a primary from Joe Walsh next time.

    Its an awesome moment but Mark Kirk just guaranteed himself a primary from Joe Walsh next time.

    Good luck with that.


  10. - wndycty - Wednesday, Feb 13, 13 @ 10:02 am:

    LOL you know I don’t think Walsh has a chance, but given Walsh’s tone as of late, hell as of always, I could see him doing that.


  11. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Feb 13, 13 @ 10:47 am:

    Awesome. Puts a smile on my face.


  12. - Susiejones - Wednesday, Feb 13, 13 @ 12:27 pm:

    very nice. saw them greet each other last night but did not see the fist bump on the channel I was watching. good to see Sen. Kirk back at the Capitol. was going to say back on the job, but know he was on the job during his rehab.


  13. - Boone Logan Square - Wednesday, Feb 13, 13 @ 12:56 pm:

    Nice catch of a nice moment, Rich.


  14. - Just The Way It Is One - Wednesday, Feb 13, 13 @ 3:35 pm:

    I guess the word of the post is “nice,” but I must admit, I, too, must say it: “It was a nice gesture–and was not dutiful by a sitting U.S. President. Rather it seemed respectful, genuine, collegial…B.O. gets a fist pump from ALL Illinoisans on this one for displaying genuine class.
