Checking in with the Celebrity Party

I am told an old drunken, washed up, politician read from a book at some music award thingy last night. Do I have that right?

Also, a group of ultra-privileged multi-multi-millionaires who live in gated communities patrolled by armed guards to keep the riff-raff out… are planning to hold a “People’s State of the Union” to protest the President.

The official Democrat response to the SOTU will be given by Joe Kennedy, nephew of the drowner. He’s described as a “rising star” in the Democrat Party. Because nothing says “healthy, vibrant democracy” like a permanent, hereditary ruling class.

  1. Then we have the Democratic Party’s response given by Rep. Joe Kennedy,

    Maxine Waters wants to give her own response,

    Jimmy Kimmel thinks Stormy Daniels should give a response…

    If I were president, I would send a written message to congress, forget the speech, and leave the rest of them looking like attention whores.

  2. Is anyone in the picture somebody famous? The kid kneeling with the camera looks a little like Nicholas Hoult but that’s about it.

  3. PLUS charging the common man, unwashed plebes $47 admission shows a complete disconnect—another RICH irony of this pathetic farce. These dilittente, ignorant narcissists are freaking clueless, but I guess when you think $1000 is “crumbs”, almost $50.00 is next to nothing….

  5. Oh, is that who that is? Guess I didn’t recognize him without the green body paint. Is he the Avengers one or the one from the previous failed attempt to relauch the franchise?

  6. (Sigh) The usual suspects seeking publicity. Has-beens and D-listers trying to jump start or resuscitate their careers. Some twerp who played a superhero in a movie based on a comic book or a video game, and who thinks his opinion should be headline news.

    And the SOTU speech is just another pointless, self-congratulatory dog-and-pony show. Like the Oscar Awards, the Emmy Awards, the Tony Awards, the Grammy Awards, the Golden Globe Awards, and the Awards Awards.

    @1, I agree. Jefferson sent a letter to Congress instead of making a speech, and his successors followed his example until Wilson revived the practice of making the SOTU address in person. If I were POTUS, I would post the SOTU on the White House website. Then let the Democrat-Media complex stage their own publicity stunts elsewhere.

  7. Can the SotU be 144 characters or less?

    Let’s see: “The Union is more Great than one year ago.” That leaves 102 if more detail is required, plus a little if he wants to get creative with grammar or punctuation.

  11. Nothing says “Party of the People” like 3rd-generation Trust Fund Princeling who’s a 4th-generation Harvard grad and 6th-generation Political Dynast speaking for the Common Man.

  12. If I were president, I would send a written message to congress, forget the speech, and leave the rest of them looking like attention whores.

    Ah, but that would be giving in to the critics. (“We won!”) It would also be very un-Trumpian. DJT built his campaign upon large crowds and mixing it up with his opponents. The only time an event was cancelled was for logistical reasons or venue choices (such as the ill-fated scheduled appearance at UI/Chicago in which the protest was organized by Obama buddy Bill Ayers).

    To quote from the linked Vox article:

    […] the State of the Union address is a very tough act to follow. The president speaks in the Capitol before nearly every high-ranking member of all three branches of the federal government and is frequently interrupted by applause from hundreds of people.

    This is right in Donald Trump’s wheelhouse. Except that the people applauding aren’t Average Janes and Joes, but some of the most powerful people in the nation. This is an opportunity for the president to shine and usually, they live up to the task.

    And the SOTU speech is just another pointless, self-congratulatory dog-and-pony show.

    Albeit one which is broadcast to the nation, carried on all four broadcast television networks, all three cable news networks, and the radio/TV supplicants of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Even the BBC will be chatting about it afterwards. Fox News Channel currently has a corner-screen bug promoting it along with the tag “All Day Coverage”.

    To borrow from a former Vice President, it’s a big [effing] deal! It is probably the only event by the President of the United States—outside of an ‘address to the nation’ during a national crisis—which commands the same attention that wartime addresses from FDR did. In recent years, the broadcast networks have declined requests by The White House to cover presidential remarks which they determined would not be in their best interests as commercial operations and in their sole discretion are deemed to be “political”. But no one refuses to cover the SOTU. And neither the Academy Awards, the Emmys, the Golden Globes, or the massively un-self-aware Grammys are broadcast on more on than one media outlet.

    As the co-founder of Vox notes in another article: Trump’s law [is]: attention creates value. This is POTUS 45’s stock in trade. By ceding it to The Resistance, he’s letting them win a game by default. The fact that Botox Betty (aka San Fran Nan), who can’t be a no-show, has to sprain her face muscles with an imitation smile at various points in the evening is reason enough to participate. Sure, the loyal opposition will attempt to spin and put their stamp on the evening, but as the Vox articles point out, few people remember who or what the rebuttal address was about—even if it’s given by a soulless ginger who is the latest legacy seatwarmer from America’s Royal Family.

  13. It can’t be said more lyrically or succinctly than this:

  15. In France, it’s a more deceptive form of aristocratic elites we’ve got —
    those are not so much made out of bloodlines, but rather, from the same small set of elitist public schools — Ecole Normale Superieure, Ecole Nationale d’Administration — hijacked at their very top by the left intelligentsia and multi-generational socialist and communist party/syndicalist/union thugs ever since at least Jaures (*)

    It’d be like most of your politicians would almost exclusively come from the most radical leftist clubs groomed at Yale, Amherst, or Berkeley.

    Even the Brits consider the Channel wider than the North Atlantic. Well, they used to…

  22. On the tasteless joke that is the “anti-war” / “pro-pueblo” American left, since FDR:

    FDR’s 1941 SOTU’s “Four Freedoms” for the People’s:

    Freedom of speech — except for communist and socialist countries, all over the place, since 1917;

    Freedom of worship — except for the American christians photographers or bakers called in courts, 2008-ongoing;

    Freedom from want — Idem #1

    Freedom from fear — except when you’re Japan, 1945 getting a lecture about democracy by Truman, or Irag, Syria, Lybia, Afghanistan, Ukraine, … getting a lecture about democracy by Obamarx the Cool, 2008-2016 (26,000+ bombings in his last year alone)

    Clinton’s SOTU, 1996, “the era of big government is over” —
    BWAHAHAHAHAHA !!!

    Now, that was another good one!

    Comment by Cyril J. — January 29, 2018 @ 7:42 pm - January 29, 2018

  23. Definitely.

    President Trump could definitely tweet pretty much anything of a random 140 character-long string he’d come up with for his SOTU —

    no way he could get anywhere close to these past insults to Americans’ intelligence.

  25. A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

  28. @26 True, true, it’s getting hard to keep track of the family numbers with Kennedy’s —

    the Kennedy you’re probably thinking of is number “II”

    http://www.masslive.com/politics/index.ssf/2013/03/ex-us_rep_joe_kennedy_ii_mourn.html

    the one linked in V the K’s post is number “III” — not that it does make much of a difference clue-wise, though — quoting:

    From health care to economic justice to civil rights, the Democratic agenda stands in powerful contrast to President Trump’s broken promises to American families. Deeply honored to be chosen to deliver the response to the State of the Union next week. Stay tuned for updates!

    For the sake of common decency, please refrain from asking the Venezuelan people to “stay tuned” as well.

    I’ve heard the “Democratic agenda” dear to the Kennedy’s best friends who are in charge over there … isn’t working out “para el pueblo” quite as well as once advertised not so long ago.

    Comment by Ted B. (Charging Rhino) — January 29, 2018 @ 11:53 pm - January 29, 2018

  32. the one linked in V the K’s post is number “III”

    The ginger who will be delivering the official retort to the SOTU is the son of Joseph P. Kennedy II, who founded Citizens Energy which was a recipient of Venezuelan oil until 2015. Dad retired from Congress in 1998. The SOTU respondent [referred to as “JoJoJo” by non-fans in Bawstun] is one half of twin sons born to JPK II and his first wife, Shelia Rauch. She became a public figure after the father of her future Congressman son decided to trade up to a newer model who was a former staffer and subsequently applied for annulment of his marriage in the Roman Catholic Church so he could have a legitimately recognized marriage to #2. She opposed the annulment and felt it invalidated her role in the marriage and the raising of her sons. She discovered that the Archdiocese of Boston granted the annulment without contacting her and that it was expedited because of the family’s status in Massachusetts. She pursued the case all the way to the Vatican, and the Roman Rota there later overturned the original decision. Dad later married his former staff member in a civil ceremony in 1993.

    JPK II had a reputation for being an arrogant entitled jerk and was disliked even by rank-and-file Democrats. Time will only tell to see if the apple falls near or far from the tree.

  33. RSG @ #32- Thanks for the lineage update.

    The Kennedy clan has an immense problem rising above the expectations of amorality. One is inclined to believe it is related to “the bad seed” and is, therefore, genetic.

    However, if nothing else, the Kennedy family keeps the fact of indulgences issued by the church alive.

    The DemonizingRat party is so deep into deception and lying that they have no standards. Having no standards does not preclude the DemonizingRats from claiming moral superiority. Their morals and ethics are relative to the situation and fluid in order to accommodate the situational needs that they so often crash into.

    If there we not situation morality and ethics, they would have no standards at all.
