MST3K – White House Edition

Have you ever played MST3K with the State of the Union? That’s what Julie and I did last night. First off, I haven’t seen one of those since Bush took office. Seriously, it seemed like every time he did a State of the Union, Schad was working.

Have you ever played MST3K with the State of the Union? That’s what Julie and I did last night. First off, I haven’t seen one of those since Bush took office. Seriously, it seemed like every time he did a State of the Union, Schad was working. Last night we had off and I forced Julie to watch it. It was either that or King of Queens on the U (U’s Got it!). The State of the Union is what you get when you force tradition down our throats. It works for the Brits. It doesn’t really work for the Americans. Too many dipshit Senators/Congressman in one room. I don’t give a rats ass about the entrances and the pleasantries. What struck me about this address is that it meant nothing. He said nothing. It was so general and bland. It was boring. And when did they start treating the speech like a football game? They shot it with script in hand, cutting away to generals when they talked about war, and to Hillary when they talked about anything controversial. They might as well had “STATE OF THE UNION on FOX” signs. But Julie and I got super giddy and tried to make each other laugh every time they showed a Senator/House member cutaway. We had the length of the cutaway to that person to make a funny joke at their expense. Then, we fell asleep. Seriously, we both zonked on our couches til it was over. We were bored at our own game! And instead of watching the Dems response, we changed over to Public Access 19 for “I Love a Charade”. I went 5 out of 5. I would’ve called in and guessed the charade, but my phone was off the charger too long. Whatever.

Here are some of the great one-liners from last night’s session:

– “Hey Grassley, more like Senator Assley!”
– “Nancy, get that hard candy out of your mouth.”
– “Did Nancy put a thing of pez on Cheney’s leg? Is that why he is laughing during the speech?”
– “Hey, two ladies by the exit – keep your panties on, he’ll sign your program”
– “Jesse Jackson Jr. is talking to the Prez, but you know the Prez doesn’t know who he is”
– “Wake up Barack!”
– “Poor Durbin, he has to sit in the cheap seats. Barack is next to Kennedy. No respect”
– “Wake up Ted Kennedy!”
– “Leiberman, you suck!”
– “Kerry, you suck!”
– “Nightmare on Elm Street!!!!!”

Oh wait, that last one was from “I love a Charade”.
