I Protest

SOTU happens to fall on Fat Tuesday this year, which is absolutely appropriate given this is the last moment the country will be eating once the plague of stimulus infects all sources of wealth. We're hosting a party, so unless the guests start begging to watch I'll have to miss it.

For the record, this is my attitude towards just about anything the President says regarding stimulus --"even when he's changed it or condensed it." Although I reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks later.

Also for the record, for reasons I've stated elsewhere, I protest there being a response to the SOTU, even if it is Slumdog Governor who delivers it.
