Tom Cotton and John Boozman respond to Obama State of the Union address

Posted By on Wed, Jan 29, 2014 at 9:38 AM

If there's one thing more boring and pointless than a State of the Union address, it's a response to a State of the Union address. Lately Republicans have decided that rather than let one official speaker give the response, it's best to have scores of lawmakers videotape their own. Let a thousand tedious flowers bloom. Obama-hatred is a core unifying theory of the modern Republican party, so everyone calls dibs, fair enough. (Love this Onion headline: Dad Delivers State Of The Union Rebuttal Directly Into Television Screen.) 

Above, Cotton trying to warm up his speaking style a touch (getting there, not quite). 

*BREAKING: Cotton still doesn't like Obamacare. 

After the jump, Boozman takes a crack. Riveting performance.
