The president’s yearly State of the Union address masquerades as an update on the status of the country (as if we didn’t have this thing called “the news”) and as an outline of the president’s vision for the next year. Of course, what it’s really about is trying to score political points with your words given the existing climate in popular opinion. I’m not even sure if it rises to the level of political theater; it seems much more to me like one of many moves on a chess board in the arrogant game of power.
Therefore, the State of the Union address is meaningless, and no one should bother to pay attention to it.
[abrupt change of tone in 3… 2… 1…]
Which is why me and my fellows at RadioActive San Diego will be covering the speech live tonight! We’ll stream the speech as it goes, carving it up, pointing out the lies, and above all, mocking the Fucker-In-Chief, in the hopes that sarcasm will prevent us all from screaming.
Please join us.
