Details from BuzzFeed:
Normally, the Washington press corps rush early to get tickets for a coveted seated spot inside the room for the State of the Union speech.
This year though, the demand for seats has dropped off significantly, with media organizations waiting until the last minute to get their tickets to cover the event. The press galleries are still likely to be full by the time Obama takes the podium, but by late Monday afternoon that still wasn’t a sure thing.
Nobody’s listening. Nobody cares. So in my best John Cleese voice I’ll just add, “This is a lame duck!”
I hope I’m not drunkblogging to an empty room tonight.
