ANN ALTHOUSE: Justice Alito overshadows Obama on the day after the President’s address. “Isn’t it fascinating that the lengthy, amplified, magnified speech of the most powerful man in the world with his big captive audience — in the magnificent room and in smaller rooms all over the country — is outweighed by one man’s headshake and silent mouthing of 2 or 3 words? And isn’t it ironic that, right when we saw the judge’s minimalist expression that overwhelmed the President’s torrent of words, Obama was railing about the ‘powerful interests’ and that would use their great wealth to speak far too much during election campaigns?”
