State of the Union Thoughts

Obama generally did a good job, and his presidency is clearly on an upswing. Like all State of the Union addresses, it consisted of a whole bunch of stuff that will never, ever happen. And I look forward to people still calling Obama a socialist when he spent the speech talking about tax cuts, spending freezes, and the need to not interfere with business.

- When Rachel Maddow said "a chair has been left empty," she was talking about Congresswoman Giffords. But I at first thought she was referring to the MSNBC set, and the empty seat was for Olbermann.

- It'll be interesting if Newt Gingrich finds a way to attack Obama for the "Winning the Future" message, since he wrote a book with that very title.

- John Boehner's American flag ribbon was sideways for the entire speech. If Obama did that it would be a sign he HATES AMERICA.
