Victory Lap: Drunkblogging the Pre-Post Iowa, Pre-Post Impeachment SOTU
If you don't mind me borrowing a famous phrase: She's a nasty woman, isn't she?
Two nights of drunkblogging in a row is a younger man's game, but here I am anyway.
Still, I'll let some younger man or woman write the full wrapup here at PJ or one of our sister Townhall sites.
I will say one thing in closing though.
Whatever his faults and virtues, all magnified by his own boosterism and the press's funhouse magnifying glass, Trump is unreservedly and unabashedly pro-American. A gung-ho patriot, delivering a gung-ho patriotic speech.
Like running into an old friend after years and years apart, that's something you maybe didn't realize how much you missed until it was right there in front of you again.
And there it is.
I don't often give advice, but if you'll allow me this once: Don't watch the MSN wrap-ups.
Bask in what you saw, and don't let anyone tell you anything different.
"The best is yet to come."
Trump's ending with a rousing call to the sprit of workers and pioneers.
It's just so perfectly damn American that it almost feels foreign after the last 20-plus years of waffling.
It's all-American, and a very inclusive vision of America.
I can't remember a finer speech by an American president since Reagan stood in front of the Berlin Wall.
First SOTU shoutout ever to Annie Oakley? Awesome, if so. Awesome, even if not so.
OK, bringing a soldier home from deployment to greet his family at SOTU is just damn near unfair.
In the best possible way, but still.
Will Dems stand for peace...?
But they don't look happy about having to do it when Trump is waging it.
