Quote of the #SOTU night, …Yeah. Yeah, @JonahNRO Is Right edition.

Pretty much got it in one.

My general impression was this was a remarkably boring speech, intellectually and rhetorically. Not every idea was terrible. But no idea was particularly exciting, or all that significant. Because it lacked ambition, it was a far less offensive speech that I thought it would be.

I was expecting more in the way of sheer, raw fury on my part. Instead, I got… well, apparently I wasn’t the only one who saw his low expectations of this speech fulfilled.  I just didn’t think that the President would be similarly wearily unsurprised at the results.

    So, we’re not going to Mars, we’re not gonna have peace or a return to normalcy in our time, we’re pretty much gonna have three more years of lowered expectations.

    “Tonight we’re going to just have an Open Thread on the SOTU. I and the cobs discussed doing a live blog, and the consensus was that basically, TFG isn’t worth that much of anyone’s time. It will be an hour and a half of complete bullshit, and after the first twenty long minutes, saying “bullshit” to everything just becomes lifeless, predictable, and mechanical, like Obama’s speechifying itself.”

    I went to bed early with a sinus headache (which I still have this morning), but it would appear Ace nailed it.
