It used to be that after the President’s State of the Union address, the opposing party would offer a response.
But since 2011, the GOP has offered two responses to President Obama, the official Republican response and a Tea Party response. Because, you know, when you’ve got a Kenyan Muslim Socialist in the WH, one rebuttal can’t possibly be enough to deal with the horror.
This year, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah will do the Tea Party honors on January 28, following in the hallowed footsteps of Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, and Rand Paul.
The GOP hasn’t yet announced who gets their official gig. But whoever it is will not eat anything salty or spicy for 24 hours beforehand, having learned the lesson of Marco Rubio’s “Big Gulp” from last year.
So look forward to Crazy and Crazier, Dumb and Dumber.
