You go, Joe!

February 8, 2023

You have to admit – assuming you’re the sort of political junkie who actually watches the State of the Union speech – that this year’s was pretty entertaining.

There was Kevin McCarthy, seated behind Joe Biden, clearly wishing the ground would open up and swallow him as his raucous caucus (whom he’d warned not to do so) hurled abuse at the President. 

When a Republican Congressman yelled “You lie!” at President Obama in 2009, people on both sides of the aisle were stunned. And the Congressman was quickly censured. Now, it seems, heckling has become de rigueur. The Democrats were also guilty during the Tangerine Wankmaggot’s first two State of the Union addresses. After they retook the House of Representatives, the Dems mostly left Speaker Nancy Pelosi to show what they thought.

The best part, of course, was the clear delight Biden took in baiting the baiters, going off script briefly in a successful attempt to make them (appear at least) to support social security. Even McCarthy stood up and applauded.

(Interesting job on the subtitles.)

If there is one thing at which Biden excels it is sounding optimistic about the future.

Unlike the dystopian response from Sarah Huckabee Sanders which made no reference to anything Biden had just said and culminated with a spectacular own goal when she stated “The dividing line in America is no longer between right or left…” 

Well, yes, Sarah, you are right, as the Twitterverse quickly pointed out.

Oh, and, yes, Biden definitely intends to run again next year.
