It’s State of the Union night, you guys. That means I’m cuddled up with my first ladies of PBS — Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff — and a beer. When deciding what to drink for this occasion, I opted for La Fin du Monde — “The End of the World” in French — by Unibroue in Canada. (Eh?)
Seemed appropriate since, if you turned on any news channel today, all you heard were talking heads from both sides flipping out about anything and everything leading up to tonight’s speech. Also, on a related note, they really need to install some APPLAUSE signs in the House during the State of the Union. Those awkward, out-of-turn claps are the most awkward.
