  1. Dammit!! Bernstein is not playing fair. Doesn’t he understand how the game is played? We don’t actually care what the President intends to say in the SOTU address on Wednesday. The whole fun of the game is to try to guess what he will say and what it will mean and how many people it will piss off on both sides of the aisle.

    Facts? Nope. We want rumors, speculation, innuendo and God bless em, we want leaks and un-named sources, to give us just enough information…to make the dim-witted pundits, bloggers, and of course us, dangerous.

    Dang, just when I was all ready to get out my pitchfork, torch and ‘stupid Hooverism’ hat. If they keep changing the rules of the game, how do they expect us to play? 😉

      ROTFLMAO! AG, I couldn’t have said that better!

      • Sorry about that 😉

        Its just everyone knows its a game, but tries to pretend its not. Remember last week when the Supreme Court ruling meant the ‘end of the world’ as we know it? Now their on to the next shiny object. sigh…its like they don’t care what the President is actually going to say tonight’s…its all about what they think he’s going to say…

        They need to start actually reporting news when it happens, versus creating the news before it happens. This is the problem with the 24/7 news cycle, they have to talk about something, even if its just made-up scenarios. 😉
