The State of the Union is Lame.

The speech, I mean. Not America. America is awesome.

The Constitution requires that the President “from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union”. It does not require that he perform bland and ineffective political theater, making “a partisan stump speech thinly disguised as a plea for national unity.” (h/t: Memeorandum)Nor does it require that Congressmen clap like a studio audience for every line, nor jump up and down like trained seals at particularly rhetorical moments.

Nancy want a fishy!

So let us dispense with it. If we never have to hear another laundry-list of un-passed proposals, the Republic will endure.
