I watched the not-really-a-State-of-the-Union address last night.  Charlie “call me Charles if I’m not on Good Morning America” Gibson remarked that the members of Congress were not allowed to save a seat near the aisle, where they all wanted to be so they could shake the Prez’s hand/get on TV.  So, because they couldn’t reserve a seat there, some of them just sat in those seats all afternoon, waiting for the big event.


Good.  God.


The economy is in the crapper, we’re fighting two wars, and the most important thing that these dopes are doing is saving seats?  Then at the end of the thing, they’re all waving their programs at him for an autograph.  Very dignified.  How embarrassing.  How about you, I don’t know, get busy fixing something!?


I thought the speech itself was pretty good.  I especially appreciated when he mentioned parents reading to their children.  I really, really agree with the importance of reading to children.  The one thing that I think escaped a lot of people is the ovation President Obama got when he was demanding fiscal restraint from Congress.  They all leapt to their feet, and he laughed about being able to find some common ground.  Um, am I missing something, or are these (with exceptions for a relative few newbies) the same people who spent us into a trillion dollar deficit, and a ten-trillion dollar national debt?  Oh sure, when the cameras are on they’re all for fiscal responsibility.  But when it gets down to it, they’ll all keep spending and spending and spending money that we don’t have, until this country collapses under its own larded tonnage.


But, at least they got an autograph.

Re: Saving Seats

i heard last night that some of these morons got there at 8 am to get an aisle seat. i can't imagine that THEY actually went - probably sent some minion from the office to sit all day. you forgot to mention they voted themselves a raise at the end of last year. i'd punch pelosi in the face if i ever met her.

Re: Saving Seats

Do you think that we can call what is on the front of Nancy Pelosi's head a "face?" I think it used to be a face, but now it is scar tissue.
