January 8th

1790: George Washington delivers the first State of the Union Address in New York City. But he is drowned out by a large crowd nearby yelling "Mets Suck!"

1867: African American men are granted the right to vote in Washington, D.C.... and as soon as they have someone worth voting for, they will.

1964: President Lyndon B. Johnson declares the "War on Poverty" and promptly throws a grenade at a bum.
