Best and Worst of Last Night

Here are some of my best and worst moments from last night’s State of the Union.

Worst:

1- Obama’s giving away the store on NEW NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS and CLEAN COAL Technology, which is an oxymoron (perhaps requiring Oxy-clean) .  Was that necessary to advocate for climate legislation?  Uchhh.

2- Bipartisan veneers, in the face of mud thrown at him for 365 days straight. I wonder if he’s heard about this.

Best:

1- The great moment when he got everyone on their feet cheering:  “Jobs must be the focus of 2010.”  And a second later, with all the Republicans (noticeably John Boehner) applauding: ” . . . and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight.”  Swift.

2- Ending the idiotic “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.

3- The picture of one of the bandits in bedsheets, Alito, surrounded by a president, Congress and American people clearly condemning their disastrous decision on corporate campaigning, mouthing, “It’s not true”.   Not quite a Wilson, but we got it just the same.
