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.

    Yeah. Get right on that, champ.

    “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.
