If there’s one thing more boring and pointless than a State of the Union address, it’s a response to a State of the Union address. Lately Republicans have decided that rather than let one official speaker give the response, it’s best to have scores of lawmakers videotape their own. Let a thousand tedious flowers bloom. Obama-hatred is a core unifying theory of the modern Republican party, so everyone calls dibs, fair enough. (Love this Onion headline: Dad Delivers State Of The Union Rebuttal Directly Into Television Screen.)
