Why I’m Not Watching the State of the Union Tonight

Because why would you?  It’s the announcement of a slate of irrelevant policies.  Little news is broken, and most of the relevant announcements were leaked and/or publicized before today. With today’s divided government and sharply polarized parties, none of the policies that require Congressional action have any chance of passage. If you’re really curious what Obama has to say, the NYT published a pre-read.  The themes are all there, along with the policy proposals.  And if you’d like to play a drinking game, play one that your friends and family will actually enjoy.

Wait to tune in until it’s the next President’s turn.  Then maybe, just maybe, it might be worth devoting an hour to.
