So. I got myself all worked up thinking about the State of the Union address.
I'm completely unplugged and have no clue what's going on by choice but decided I would pay attention
and have something intelligent and insightful to say.
Cause I like to make a good impression.
OK. So no cable. No television. Cause I'm that kind of mom. No ads. No crap.
Earlier I checked CNN and it looked like they would be streaming the address.
Available on iPad.
No to ads. No to crap. Yes to iPad.
8:58. live stream of state of the union is so NOT available on iPad.
9:00. kicked Mia off facebook to stream the address on the computer
9:01. fuck you CNN why can't I find the stream?
9:02. google and follow link to hulu. I can do hulu. I used to watch LOST on hulu.
9:04. finally. hulu streaming Fox coverage of the address
Somewhere along the line I saw that Fox would cover the address and the Republican response.
AND the Tea Party response.
Tea Party response????
Since when does the Tea Party get to respond?
What about the Green Party response?
oh. right. fox
