Weather and Politics

I used to be of the opinion that the reason they scheduled the President’s State of the Union speech in January was because they had nothing better to do with their time. Now I realize it was a plot to take advantage of the terrible weather in January, with the assumption that everyone would be stuck inside and have no choice but to listen to it.

In the 1950s-1970s that pretty much worked. There were only the three networks and a few independent stations in most markets. But now people have a choice and no one except partisans watch the damned thing. We have more interesting things to do with our time and it is much more fun to watch the aftermath when it becomes obvious that no one was paying any attention to it.

Now, if those damned fool politicians would figure out a way to speed up global warming so we could get rid of winter, then they might be of some use. But playing recordings of Presidential speeches just does not put out enough hot air to accomplish that.
