Dead Blogging The State Of The Union Address

Barack Obama was at his posing-for-a-bust-of-himself best in Tuesday night’s State of the Union address, and GOP Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Roadmap) delivered an appropriately tight-lipped response, which included this statement:

Washington should not be in the business of picking winners and losers.

He’s right. It’s the business of the chin-strokerati to pick winners and losers.

Consequently, here’s the hardworking staff’s handy Clip ‘n’ Save SOTU Scorecard.

Winners                                                            Losers

    Paul Ryan delivered the Republican response to the President’s SOU? I was sure that it was Michelle Bachmann. Tea Party, Republican leadership, it’s so hard to tell who’s running their show.

    Ryan’s scorecard looked a lot like:
    Winner: Branding; Loser: The Truth

    Ryan’s speech was remarkable for its sheer density of mendacity. Possibly a record for lies per word, and in D.C. the bar for that is set pretty darn high.
