Stephen Moore, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, made a peculiar analogy Monday evening during a televised discussion of the bipartisan seating arrangement at tonight’s State of the Union address.
While Fox Business Network’s Andrew Napolitano seemed frustrated by the seating, Moore decided to go in a wholly different direction, calling it “another campaign speech” for President Barack Obama.
“This idea of all the members, Republicans and Democrats sitting next to each other, that’s like date rape,” he said. “I don’t understand the logic behind that.”s
2. I'd say it missed the turn at "peculiar" and went straight on to "ignorant, offensive and cruel."
Because no, highly paid adults sitting next to each other, even though they kind of disagree with each other, and pretending to listen to a 40-minute speech and jumping up and applauding or pointedly not applauding at certain times is nothing like date rape. Nothing at all.
