Extreme News

January 29, 2010

For President Obama’s State of the Union (SOTU) last night, not only is there now instant commentary about his every joke, every gesture; every pause; not only is there comparisons made to past SOTU’s and “decorum”; but we also have comparisons between what we all heard and the pre-released version of the speech. Sigh.

I don’t know why anyone reads the SOTU pre-release. I liked the pleasant surprise of hearing the strong pronouncement against DADT and the standing ovation that followed. I also liked the solid snarking at the Republicans, the Democrats and the Justices. I wish he had beaten up the Democrats a little while longer. I still have some hope for them.

The Republicans, on the other hand, are hopeless assholes.

[Via TPM]

Every Senate Republican today voted against reestablishing “pay-as-you-go” budgeting rules that mandate that any new spending must be paid for.

The bill passed with a 60-40 vote.

And speaking of shameful…The John Edwards Story just gets grosser and grosser. It was fun for a while, but these days he’s just swimming in a large vat of bile. Eeew.
