(Looks like Number 44 took the gloves off before the wretched 112th Congress tonight – well done, Mr. President.)
(Also, here’s a “deep thought” from yours truly; Am I the only one who thinks it’s utterly pathetic that it must be a given for the President of the United States to not compete with NFL during an address to Congress and the nation since he would surely lose in the ratings if he did?)
Update 9/9/11: He must have done a good job since he got the predictable reactions from the usual suspects.
Conversely, this clip from last night’s Republican presidential candidates beauty show illustrates why I don’t like people who affiliate themselves with “the loyal opposition” generally; for the most part (with notable exceptions), they’re a bunch of swaggering, self-promoting blowhards with opinions a mile wide and half an inch deep, and they’ll try to get you to do their dirty work for them and make you think they’re doing you the favor instead.
I thought of this as I watched this sickening clip while Perry, Romney etc. all did their best to fellate the memory of The Sainted Ronnie R (more here…oh, and by the way, did you notice that, at about :51, “Goodhair” con-vee-niently left out the part about the trial and the presumed guilty verdict before the execution?)…
…and yep, I think this fits in response (sorry, no video).
