Congress Ponders Adult-Like Seating Chart for State of the Union Speech
Matt | On 18, Jan 2011
Word in Washington has it that the audience for next week’s State of the Union speech will look a bit different than years past.
In light of the violent political rhetoric and bitter partisan environment on Capitol Hill, some lawmakers are considering a way to extend the olive branch to the other side of the aisle.
Are they going to work together? … Hmm. Not quite.
Will they stop calling each other hateful name? … Don’t know about that one.
They are starting with baby steps by voluntarily integrating the seating chart at the State of the Union speech to be held on January 25.
This shit is right out of a kindergarten classroom, if you ask me. It’s a different first step. But, we’re talking about very grown ass men and women, some of whom even have great-grandchildren! Did it really take all of these years just to sit in an INTEGRATED fashion at a public function?
Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) came forward with an idea that he wants to hang-out with some Republicans at next Tuesday night’s speech. He seems to think that other senators will follow suit. Some have committed, so they are headed in the right direction.
Hell, at this point, all they need to do is start coloring with big markers and saying their ABC’s out loud before the president walks in and they will be in heaven. I wonder if they will all bring their He-Man and She-Ra lunchboxes to the Capitol building on Tuesday? ::smh::
