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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
