    You certainly don’t see photos like this too often. A new era of civility on Capitol Hill? I’m skeptical, but the State of the Union blue/red mashup last night was at least a bit encouraging in that regard. Of course, then we had the kinda nutty (but basically civil) Republican response and the completely crazy (and completely untrue) Tea Party response from a woman who’s almost never civil.
