We desperately need a messenger who can talk persuasively to the boardroom and to the apartment house. One out of two aint good enough.
If you missed the speech, here it is... mostly.
Every year of this presidential occupation I've snark blogged the State of the Union with my pained howls, retorts, parodies, and rebuttals. But this year I just don't think I can stomach an hour of his sugared, authoritarian demagoguery.

What does a Transforming Earth Whisper do when the people stop listening? Barack Obama pretends to hear the mandate of the two thirds of eligible Americans who didnt vote.
The only thing that stands between us and a 70-30 Senate is a major media and online media complex that is even more commie than Barack dares to be on his most ambitious days
Is there Hope for the Liberal Media?
