Time was when the President of the United States delivered the State of the Union Address, and people cheered or jeered — dependent on their political persusasion then everybody went out and g0t drunk.
Now everyone from the party boss to the janitor gets face time on the tube to pontificate on the state of affairs in the nation.
Barack Obama, of course, delivers the State of the Union next Tuesday. That’s part of his job as the top boss. The Republican Party gets its change to and down its view on the state of things in the official GOP response, delivered this year by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, new chairman of the House Budget Committee.
But wait. This year there’s a new player in the halls of power. Re. Michele Bachmann, the mouth that roared ad designated shouter thisyear for the boom box majority,, will broadcast the the “official response” Tea Party Express.
No word yet on whether or no Joe the Plumber will deliver next year’s response for the butt crack maktet.
