STATE OF THE UNION

Well, it’s over. The highlight of the speech was ….., sputnik?…. no, …how about….,   hmm. Actually, I don’t think there was a highlight. Boehner’s tie wasn’t what I would have expected for the Speaker of the House. Hillary looked good. That can happen when you decide to give up politics. Biden looked like a bright and capable man. A lot of Democrats look like that.

Bachman was shrill. Ryan was brilliant. So what else is new? There was no football game so the ratings were pretty good. A local radio broadcaster I know, not personally of course, said the President never looked at the audience, not once. I guess if you look away it’s easy to lose your place on the teleprompter.

The event was much less entertaining than it was last year. Pity.
