Wow. Our experiment is off to a great start—let's see if we can finish it off sooner than expected.
Here are some of my best and worst moments from last night's State of the Union.
1- Obama's giving away the store on NEW NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS and CLEAN COAL technology, which is an oxymoron (perhaps requiring Oxy-clean). Was that necessary to advocate for climate legislation? Uchhh.
2- Bipartisan veneers, in the face of mud thrown at him for 365 days straight. I wonder if he's heard about this.
1- The great moment when he got everyone on their feet cheering: "Jobs must be the focus of 2010." And a second later, with all the Republicans (noticeably John Boehner) applauding: "...and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight." Swift.
2- Ending the idiotic "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
3- The picture of one of the bandits in bedsheets, Alito, surrounded by a president, Congress, and American people clearly condemning their disastrous decision on corporate campaigning, mouthing, "It's not true." Not quite a Wilson, but we still caught it.
