So I watched the SOTU address, and I was largely neutral about it. Centrist talking points. Yay. I also watched the GOP response, and they said exactly what I thought they would say (which was a lot of derp derp derp). I say that because the GOP speech was equally if not more erroneous and nebulous than the SOTU speech. Being the head of the Federal Budget Committee apparently does not make you a decent economist or even correct. I think he was reading from a napkin he scribbled on.
And then I watched the Tea Party response, and that was almost exactly like the GOP response (only a lot of use of the term we as if expressing the opinion of the people), and I wondered, “W(hy)TF are they even doing this?” The whole we’re-not-a-wing-of-the-GOP schtick this week seems like a downright lie. They sounded EXACTLY like a wing of the GOP. Even if most of them are absolutely crazy morons who don’t know WTF they are talking about (Rand Paul – please STFU, you loser).
Well, after the initial, easy-to-count ballots were tallied, Suttle claimed victory against the recall. That’s not saying much, because the opposition is not withdrawing until all the ballots are counted, which has caused Suttle’s people to whine about it. Hey, we’re a democracy – act like you care, shitheads.
The main town nearest my home town held a giant vigil for the missing girl Kailee Clapp. They think they found her body and caught her killer,. I’m slightly sad because I know the Clapp family.
