State of Trump’s Union Address

“A Strong Man for Troubled Times”

A lot of sources this morning are getting the SOTU Racing Form predictions, and while I generally have watched the SOTU Address, I plan to watch something else this year. Republican preznints in my lifetime have used this thing to take a victory lap and to lie us into wars. Don’t need no more of that.

But that said, there is an opportunity here for us, as we’ve NEVER had a preznint who was so attuned to ratings. Here’s the thing: it’s not enough to boycott the speech, you MUST watch something else.

It’s not enough that Trump gets low ratings, some other show must beat his ratings.

“It is not enough merely to win; others must lose.”

In the past, we’ve suggested watching something specific (like Southpark), but since we have at least three time zones in this country (and then there’s the terrible sand kingdom of Arizonastan), it becomes impractical; we’ve also gone into endless arguments about how ratings are calculated and whether cable channels are included in ratings (they are).

Instead turn your teevee on to anything that is NOT the state of Trump’s union address. But you must turn it on; watching is optional.

I highly recommend the Comedy Channel. Imagine him losing the ratings war to that.

    I’m going to youtube and watch my own “The Three Stooges” marathon. It’s guaranteed to be twice as intelligent and the orange one’s lies.

      We were thinking Drink whenever you hear a superlative, or drink whenever you hear a demonstrable falsehood. But mostly our plan is to not watch and drink enough so that we can pass out until 2020.

    Well, being a stick in the mud, I read at Snopes that unless you’re a Neilson ratings family, it doesn’t matter what you watch instead of the SOTU. That being said, for preserving our sanity, it’s a good idea to watch anything but Trump.

  6. Sadly it appears that the Comedy channel is running The Office re-runs. I do notice that Showtime is running Dune in that time slot:

    Star Vs. the Forces of Evil is on in that time slot.
    Note: I searched to get the time of the SOTU and my damn hair stood up on end. Sick as folk, I hope that doesn’t make us more prescient. I would hate to learn that #(^^*# used the SOTU to actually (and unconstitutionally, like that ever stopped him) declare war. Ratings, you know, gotta keep the viewers interested.
