Today we start with some chitchat about stuff—all kinds of stuff. Then we move on to the Big Speech. Naturally we laugh at Marco Rubio and “WaterGate”. What did we think of the, um, “responses” to the State of the Union Address? This leads to a longer discussion about the Republican Party and its ongoing problem with the “tea party”.
We also talk specifically about the State of the Union Address, including what we liked. Then, it’s about some of the implications of what was said. But no, we weren’t done yet: There was more chitchat at the end
