As regular readers know, Mock Paper Scissors believes that the best way to get under The Russian Usurper’s thin, orange skin is to NOT pay attention to him. We know for a fact that he refers to himself as a “ratings machine” and that he is always checking to get a warm fuzzy from his people, his movement.
So here’s the plan and it is simple. Instead of watching that mango-hued Shitgibbon fling poo tonight, don’t watch. But it is not enough (in my opinion) for his ratings to be bad, (paraphrasing ancient Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu) something else must beat him like a rented mule. (I’m pretty sure that’s what it said in the original Chinese.)
When the SOTU starts at 9 PM eastern, turn whatever device you use to watch entertainment over to Comedy Central. They are having a Futurama mini-marathon (at least here on the west coast) during the address. I think losing the ratings war to a cartoon show is as perfect a statement as there can be.
