This one ends with a twist, one I’ll admit I didn’t see coming until I did like 15 seconds of research.
The Republican response to President Biden’s quite sane and unexpectedly lively State of the Union speech was honestly just fucking odd, and not just because it was delivered by Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a tone best described as “a Little Rock barista’s worst nightmare.” What was legit fucking strange is how utterly devoid of ideas it was. I mean, sure, yeah, all these speeches, the State of the Union and the response, are at best fantasies where the speakers list a bunch of shit that will almost surely never happen. But, at the bare minimum, we can say that they are aspirational. There were almost no aspirations to do a goddamned thing in Sanders’ 14-minute whine about shit that, truly, has nothing to do with making people’s lives better.
