The president is announcing his plans to keep about 10,000 troops in Afghanistan. Below is the email alert via Politico:

President Barack Obama will announce Tuesday that he plans to keep 9,800 troops in Afghanistan after the end of the year to continue training Afghan forces and supporting operations against Al Qaeda, a senior administration official said.

The announcement comes just two days after the president made a surprise visit to Afghanistan to renew his pledge to end all combat operations by the end of the year and meet with commanders on the ground about steps forward.

"We will only sustain a military presence after 2014 if the Afghan government signs the Bilateral Security Agreement," the official said, referring to the document that so far outgoing Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai has refused to sign but both candidates to succeed him have said they would.

nikki haley tongue out

The following tweets are from yesterday's event at which Nikki Haley announced her re-election bid for governor of South Carolina.

The images come to us by way of the Twitter account of Rudolph Bell (@DolphBell), a "longtime newspaper journalist practicing in Greenville, SC. Jack of all beats, master of none. Greenville, SC ยท greenvilleonline.com."

We know they're real because Bell's Twitter account is "verified." I can verify that they amused me. Enjoy:
