This is such crap!

Sometimes Washington really takes the cake.  This year at the State of the Union address Democrats and Republicans are going to sit next to one another by mixing it up rather than sitting by party.  Of course this is to give us the impression of bi-partisanship but really I tend to agree with Rush Limbaugh when he said that it's merely to hide the fact that Democrats lost so many freaking seats in the Senate and lost the Majority in the house.

I have no problem with 'bi-partisanship' but the problem is that 'bi-partisanship usually translates to "conservatives giving in to the liberals" or even worse, conservatives trying to cater to the left so that they aren't demonized in the press (as if anything they do will ever prevent that in the MSM).

According to an article over at The Hill they seem to be treating this as a garden party rather than the business of the Union.

"On ABC's “This Week,” Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) said they did not have “dates” yet for the State of the Union. 
On the program, Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) asked Hutchison if she would like to sit next to him. Her response was not broadcast on the show. 
On CBS' "Face the Nation," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he's going to sit with Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), while Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), who came up with the mixed-seating idea and circulated a pledge among his colleagues, sits in McCain's usual seat.
"The fact is it's a good thing to do," McCain said. "Why not?""
All I have to say is, "how embarrassing".

I am so sick of Washington and their idiocy.  They all need to be fired.
