She says she “stands up to Trump.” We know how she stood up to fellow Democrat Al Franken.

Let’s see if she packs the gear to call out a congenital liar AND self-admitted serial molester.

Seriously. Do you know her background? Not all perfect but she sure as hell gets out there and goes for it. Walk the walk? You are talking about a very accomplished woman who has been walking the walk for some time.

Dislike her for her role in Frankens exit if you must, but stick to that.

Because the Republican Party isn't going to do anything about Trump (except cravenly back him up). The only available Rx for this galloping disease is more Democrats in congress, period.

and the classless Trump administration. This only works if you want to make sure republicans don't look like they have less dignity and decency than we do.

23. They come from opposition to the goal of destroying government

How much do you think the GOP would love getting rid of the requirement for a SOTU? Reducing government itself and doing away with transparency is their dream.

I want the story to be about Trump's bad ideas and poor performance, and especially Joe Kennedy's response. Overshadowing those things with a petty shout might satisfy a few people, but it would thwart a good opportunity to show that Democrats are superior at governing, and have better ideas.

54. Democrats class has earned them 45 fewer seats in Congress.

And even at that, Democrats are still demonized, since the right- wing narrative has them running the “Deep State.” Democrats are the snowflakes, the pushovers, the silent, enabling parents who clean up the house after their adolescent kids have trashed the place.

Not that long ago, I would have agreed— keep it clean, fight fair, be classy, take the high road. But when you’re facing Atilla the Hun, the high road isn’t even an effective escape route.

49. Nothing loud and undignified. I suggest "You Lie!" posters.

Then, on the other side, it could be a solid color, so when they flip them over and all hold them up together, it would spell out "YOU LIE!" in real big letters. You know, like they do at football games to spell out "GO TEAM!" or "RAH! RAH!" or "I CAN'T SEE THE GAME WITH THIS DAMNED POSTER IN MY FACE!".

They could try starting a wave, but the other half of the crowd probably wouldn't join in.

On a positive note, maybe he'll use the occasion to announce his resignation. Or at least maybe a new Rump-branded product.

There are many opportunities to make him look like an ass, but in the end, he'll manage to do that all by himself.

It's not a Pro Wrestling cage match in Vegas, and it shouldn't be treated as such.

Give 'em hell everywhere else, but don't disrupt the State of the Union address. To do so is not an assault on the loathsome Mr. Trump, but upon the foundations of our democracy.
