State of the Union, Shmate of the Union

Like the weatherman who tells you what you can plainly see is happening outside, President Obama’s State of the Union speech last night didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t already know. He’s a good-looking ideologue who speaks in pleasant-sounding platitudes. Yeah, I knew that.

Thankfully over the years fewer and fewer Americans have been paying attention to State of the Union speeches. Perhaps because they find them worthless or perhaps because there are just too many other things on TV, I’m pretty sure more Americans care about the faux government shown onĀ Parks and Recreation that the real one that followed it on NBC last night.

Which reminds me, nobody post a comment aboutĀ Parks and Recthat one I still want to watch later.
