Where, oh where have the congresscritters gone? Oh, where, oh, where, can they be?
Yep, it’s here. It’s on. Tuesday is President Donald J. Trump’s very first honest to goodness State of the Union Address. While many Americans are psyched like a kid on Christmas Eve, there are just as many people out there who are practically in mourning that the American main street economy is back up and running – starting with some members of Congress who just don’t think it’s worth their time.

For the most part, their complaints reflect the usual Democratic talking points, and some Republican ones too, about President Donald Trump’s first year in office: it’s been chaotic, divisive, racist, he lies, blah, blah, blah.
Of course, the majority of this group honestly doesn’t know what the American people think of them, but since they seem to be in safe districts (they won’t leave office simply by losing an election), all of them miss that no one cares they won’t be there.
We the People on the fruited plain do tend to wonder how they all got into office in the first place, but that question might well be considered racist, so it’s best not to ask.
For some bizarre reason, Maxine Waters will deliver one of a number of Democratic rebuttals to the State of the Union on the Black Entertainment Network following the address, but the others…oh, who cares. These people embarrass the Democratic Party on a regular basis. Far be it from those of us who are entertained by their antics on a regular basis to seek for them to stop now.
