President Obama will give the State of the Union address tonight…and I’ll be watching. As with all political addresses, I need some stuff to help me get through this shit.
I’ll be preparing some lamb and potato with onion…because I recently watching The Silence of the Lambs and now I’ve got a craving.
I never claimed to be right in the head.
Anyhoo, I also plan to have some ice cream on hand just in case I need to soothe my soul after a public display of no home training shout from [insert conservative with no home training, an upside down view of the facts, and a voice that carries here].
Notepad and writing instrument…
I’m a doodler during political speechification, so I always have something to write on. Also, I need to take notes for my post State of the Union recap!
After a couple of unfortunate incidents of extreme intoxication in my couch-based area (wince), I no long play drinking games during the State of the Union.
Pause…think back to the “September 11” reference drinking games of the Bush II administration…shudder.
But I shall indulge in more than a couple vodka + cran + ice libations…cause that’s the official drink up here in my lair.
I can’t remember the last time I needed music for a political address, but recent comments by Nicole Wallace have made it clear that I need to dust off my Tupac to properly interpret the Republican Response from a certain Senator Marco Rubio.
Has anyone told Marco that delivering the Republican Response is the political equivalent of winning the Best New Artist Grammy?
Oh well, if Rubio's response sucks as bad as Governor Jindal’s did (and it did…it really, really did) at least I’ll be jamming to some good music.
