Impressions on the State of the Union
So what were my impressions of President Obama’s State of the Union speech? Don’t have any. Didn’t watch it and had a pleasant night. These things have way jumped the shark and long-ago devolved into an inside-the-beltway circle jerk dominated by the post-game spinmeisters trying to tell you what it all “really” means. It took me a few years to come around–and over the last few years I’ve felt it was my duty as a blogger to watch ’em–but now I’ve decided I’ve just got more interesting things to do besides wasting an hour watching the annual laundry-list read. Although, I do have one question: Sputnik?
