Ann Althouse on the SOTU:
At stake right now is not who wins the next election – after all, we just had an election.
Ha. What a lie! The next election is completely at stake. As for the last election, some of us think it was really important. But you're saying: Eh, it's over. Let's turn away from electoral politics. But we know damned well you're working on 2012, and you opponents want some attention paid to what just happened last November.
This is why I don't watch SOTUs anymore. If anybody had said "You lie!" during the speech, it would have been treated as calling for violence, but everybody knows a politician is lying when his lips are moving.

Read the whole thing. It's pretty much what I would say if I could type.
