Scalia: State of the Union "has turned into a childish spectacle"
WASHINGTON While his colleagues got ready to go to the Capitol, Justice Antonin Scalia sat on a stage across town and held forth about why, for the 16th consecutive year, he would not be joining them for the State of the Union.

Indeed, a childish spectacle - led by the ultimate quota baby.
The ultimate example of everything that is sordid about liberalism.
That’s why I don’t watch. It’s all a big dog and pony show, and a painfully boring one at that. Once SOTU was a chance for the president to put forth his vision, what are our challenges, what course does he see through them, once applause started happening it became just another stump speech.

Why would Scalia lend any credibility to Elena Kagan or even deign to impart his exploits with her on a “hunting trip?”
I know what you mean. I quit watching them after 'W's' first one. They have become nothing more than pontificated gibberish.
FReepmail me to subscribe to or unsubscribe from the SCOTUS ping list.
It has become trivial.
There are no statesmen in Washington. Wisdom has been banished. In its place is a reality show, immature, posturing moral brutes in expensive clothing.
We are Rome, 350 AD.
No wonder those who play at “governing” hate Justice Scalia. He is not PC. We are sinking as a nation, and those on board the ship don’t want anyone to notice the imminent catastrophe.
Its like the Academy Awards, the Grammys, etc.
Like-minded (and closed group) of people gathering themselves to congratulate themselves and one another.
Mr. hummingbird recorded BO's One-Man Show but I haven't watched it yet
Did anyone notice whether "Aisle Hog" Sheila Jackson Lee get face time or a handshake of kiss from BO?
Four years ago, newly elected President Barack Obama promises to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. An intelligent society would have voted his ass out when it had the opportunity to. We are a nation of dolts.
No, we now call statesmen, “politicians.” As bad as calling a Car Dealership, used car salesmen. Equally bad. I trust no politician, republican, dimocrat, whatever. None of them.
Thanks for that link,a song sung in English by apparently a Japanese vocalist-—never heard it before and not sure what you intended by posting it in this thread, except for the (to me)obvious one.
That'd a make a good tagline...
Aha! Another "Idiocracy" fan!
Anybody who doesn't know who President Camacho is, needs to get the movie "Idiocracy".
We're there right now.
Buy stock in sports drinks! (They have electrolytes!)
If anyone got elected who gives a damn about this country they’d send a letter to congress “from time to time” and stop the dog and pony and Sheila Jackson “lip smackin’” Lee show.
