Sandwiched neatly between the Mayan apocalypse and the Friday before Christmas, President Obama was set to deliver his latest statement on the fiscal cliff negotiations shortly after 5 p.m. Friday. The press corps was so close to a clean getaway.

Eight minutes? You know he won’t be there on time, right?

Time to move to a smaller venue? It is snowing out.

How to pass the time on a Friday evening? How about a quick hashtag game?
