The soul has greater need of the ideal than the real for it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live

Do you people really buy this stuff?

Please explain to me why it is that the GOP/Tea Party(and don't try to tell me that the Tea Party isn't trying to take over the GOP) always goes out of their way to find the craziest, most out there responder to Obama's State of the Union? This year it was Michelle Bachman, whose infamous question "Where in the Constitution is the separation of Church and State?" causing the other participants and the audience to audibly gasp.  Interestingly she never blinked.

So here's her response, no we've no idea who she might be talking to.  But the fact that this is the party who's trying, and largely succeeding in taking power in D.C. nowadays is more than a little disconcerting.

So, aside from he wonderful demonstration of our completely inadequate education system, i.e. her inability to properly pronounce Iwo Jima correctly, she demonstrates nothing but a propagandistic response which has been the GOP's line all along.

Let's take a little look at last years nutbag, and everybody's favorite corruption peddler Bobby Jindal:

Here's what scares me. The American Public apparently do not want educated thinking people running their government. They want uneducated dolts forming public policy. This is a problem for me.

I don't put a lot of stock in the SOTU, it's basically, in my opinion, a chance for the President to annually state his position, and allow everyone to jockey for position with the public. And in the second year it's to set the tone for the next election cycle. Which Obama did, right on cue.

So, will anything come of this little non-debate debate?
Likely not. Everyone will go back to pushing for what they want and disregard what we want altogether. Big Business, the Big Three (and don't kid yourself, they still have enough juice to bring down Toyota), Oil, and Insurance will all keep running the show and we have very little to say about matters.

And so it goes:
