Anyone else NOT watching the State of the Union?

I can guess what Obama will say, I can assume what the pukes and baggers will retort. I'd wager 50/50 that some asshole will boo or yell something out...

Best of all, if anything happens, I'll see it here and hear it tomorrow on the news.

I'm still a little burned out on politics, namely the politics of the assholes on the right.

1. Me. Cleaning up after supper, taking kids to hockey practice, and watching the Wild.

And even if I weren't doing all that, I wouldn't watch it.

3. Much as I hate to miss it normally,

I'm burned out, too. That, and I pulled my back out shoveling snow and the muscle relaxer I took will take me to the land of nod in approximately 2 minute s.

7. Me.

I'll see the blow by blow here, and for the rest, that's what transcripts are for.

I'll read it in a whole lot less time than he'll speak it.

I'm actually more interested in the cabin/forest fire situation.

12. Why would anyone waste their time

listening to a State of the Union speech. They are only full of hot air.

I haven't listened to any since Nixon, and I haven't missed a thing. Neither will you.

13. Quit watching them years ago -

- got tired of the talking heads and all the interruptions. I find I get far more out of the speech if I read the transcript when it's published. Only takes about 10 minutes, too!

15. Watchint a politician give a speech to other politicians has very limited entertainment value.

Right up there with infomercials about hair growth products.

I don't like all the interruptions for the obligatory applause. It's will take less than half the time to read than to listen.

So, no, I didn't watch.

31. NO, of course not! Cleared my calendar to watch it.

This is not the Super Bowl that you can take or leave. I want to know what Obama thinks is important for me to know about the state of our union.

33. I don't have TV & my computer is on dial-up. No, I'm not watching.

I do have Minnesota Public Radio on in the background, and they're broadcasting it live. But I'm not really paying attention, talk is cheap.
