SOTU: Maybe Changing the Seating Wasn't a Great Idea

Our representatives on Capital Hill have reduced themselves to kids sitting at the school cafeteria lunch tables. Who, may we ask will be sitting with whom. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) apparently will be sitting with her "BFF." No friggin' way. Way dude. And she had "back ups" just in case Senator Olympia Snowe stood her up - "Johnny" and "Bob" (Senators John Isaacson and Bob Corker). I wonder how Isaacson and Corker will feel about Landrieu calling them "back ups."

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will sit with with "his good friend" (if I may use a term often used by senators from opposing sides of the aisle in the middle of a debate) Senator Bob Corker (R-Tennessee). and US Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-California) said he could sit with US Representative Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland). They "try to talk quite often." Try.

Show I vomit now or later. Who cares where they sit? Why don't they just pick their seats and let whoever sits next to them sit next to them? And don't tell us who is sitting next to whom. We're going to watch to hear what the president says, not to see who our local congressman or woman is sitting with.
