It's sad, yes, but America probably hasn't fully grasped the terrifying truth about President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech.
He has two more to go.
The prospect of listening to him blah blah blah his way through two more of these annual speeches is enough to cause the nation to curl up on the floor in the fetal position and start breathing from a brown paper bag. The man is talking the country to death, and we can't take anymore.
But there is someone who can save us.
Hillary Rodham Clinton.
She must be president. And not in 2017, but now, right away, like this week.
I'm so ready for Hillary. Aren't you?
If she doesn't take over immediately, we'll be forced to hear blah blah blah from Obama about how he'll improve the economy if given half a chance, more blah blah blah about how he really thinks privacy is important but the National Security Agency has a job to do, blah blah blah.
Oh, and Obamacare would really work if it wasn't for those technical difficulties and if the evil Republicans would blah, give him a chance, blah blah.
More economic inequality this, and more economic inequality that, and I'm surprised that the geniuses writing about politics in Washington haven't figured out that if the president is playing the inequality card now, he'll eventually drop the race card.
The race card worked once for Obama, a vicious strike when his campaign used it to take Hillary out in the 2008 campaign. But is the race card still viable?
Obama might as well bring up his old standby, the declaration that with him in the White House, the oceans will rise and the planet will begin to heal.
And that would be too much.
Which is why I'm so ready for Hillary.
The fact is, Obama has already checked out. He was never interested in being the president as much as he was interested in talking and talking about being the president. And about the only thing he seems to like about the job now is hosting dance parties with Beyonce and Stevie Wonder and taking selfies with that blonde prime minister of Denmark.
America can't wait years for Hillary to take control of the country and keep the FBI files of her enemies in the White House book room like in the old days.
So, take over Hillary.
For one thing, she's ready and has paid her dues with Bill. Just think of what she was forced to endure with the future first laddie. And another thing is that much of the media has endorsed her, and if not a formal endorsement, it's clear that many pundits have anointed her with the oils of inevitability
