In politics, there's always an occasion to slam the opposition. Even the Super Bowl presents an opportunity. And the president is the top target.

Sure, if President Obama announced he was watching ice dancing tomorrow he would deservedly get a lot of grief.

But he's doing everything right. He's watching the game. He's hosting a Super Bowl party. And if last year is any indication, the game will take precedence over everything else -- including the commercials.

Doesn't make any difference to former senator and presidential candidate Fred Thompson though. He's using the Super Bowl to take a jab at the First Fan.

Earlier today, Thompson took to Twitter to needle him.

"CBS to interview Obama in SuperBowl pre-game," Thompson tweeted. "Ironic. If Obama had his way, Colts & Saints would negotiate 4 Lombardi Trophy."

Like Thompson or not, that's a pretty good line.

By the way, nine members of Obama's cabinet will attend the White House Super Bowl party tomorrow and at least eight members from Congress will be there. The list includes:

Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA)
Rep. Rick Boucher (D-VA)
Rep. Joseph Cao (R-LA)
Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN)
Rep. Brad Ellsworth (D-IN)
Rep. Baron Hill (D-IN)
Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA)
Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT)
