No, it’s actually pretty far from perfect, but that’s essentially the vibe presented to the audience each year at the annual state of the union address. It’s a total dog and pony show, with the President trying to say how peachy everything is while Congress takes turns sitting, standing and clapping. Glenn plans to cover the event accordingly tonight, using the mystery science theater approach. Oh, it’s gonna be good.
"Tonight, we're doing coverage of the State of the Union unlike anybody, I think, has done it before. We are doing it Political Science Theater 2015. A little like mystery science theater 3,000, unless you can sue us for that and then it's completely different," Glenn joked.
"But the State of the Union, we watched it in the past. We stopped watching it, quite honestly, about three years ago. We just couldn't take it anymore. So we stopped watching it. When we watch anything with the president -- we watch it together. And we're either together in the same room or we're, you know, online or on the phone and we're watching it and yelling at it. So we thought, you know what, I think everybody feels that way. Why don't we watch it together. So we have a huge screen we'll be sitting in front of, then the camera will be right there with us. We'll be mouthing off the whole time. So we can TiVo it, so we can stop it and start it. I suggest let it run. No reason to make it longer," Glenn said.
"I've never been invited to the State of the Union, [but this year] I've been invited by six different people. I've had to say no because we're going to be doing this. I'd much rather do this than see that guy say those things. However, Mike Lee and I were talking a couple of weeks ago and he said, 'Glenn, this is a historic State of the Union, this is the most important one he's done since he got into office.'"
"Historically speaking, this is the most important one. Because this is the one where he now has to go in front of a Congress that is not his, and he now has to say, here's how we work together. And he's not going to. So this will be the first time a president has really ever done that. Just sat in front of them and said, screw you."
