The State of the Union sucks

Holy shit! I almost forgot to do my annual State of the Union post! I guess I already kinda did it this year, but maybe that was too early to count.

One good thing about the Trump presidency is it seems to have brought more people around to my longstanding position that the SOTU address is terrible and presidents should stop doing them. Ever since the speech was canceled For the first time, I have seen a fair number of commentators wondering why we do this every year when the speech is always so inconsequential. I guess it takes an outright fraud like Trump grabbing the wheel for people to realize the whole car has been worthless all along.

I could go on, but I already have! Check out my past whines for a decade and a half of anti-SOTU posts.
