Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Dave Weigel has a piece over at Slate about the bi-partisan seating arrangements for tonight's State of the Union address.
There Are No Cooties to Be Had Between Republicans and Democrats.
The odd thing about Congress's new enthusiasm for bipartisan seating at the State of the Union is that its proponents are selling it as an antidote to theatrics.
Bipartisan consensus is like when my doctor and my lawyer agree with my wife that I need help.
It ain't personal, I just can't recall the last State of the Union address I tuned in for. Mostly I don't much care what any president might serve up because I pretty much already have a handle on the State of the Union. Besides, I got plans.
Sure, that's cynical, but keep in mind that every president is a politician. And every State of the Union address begs the age old question: Are his lips moving?
Yes, I know the song is about the comfortably numb state of mental illness. Might be some deeper meaning there.
