SOTU: Why do I even bother?

I suffered through the State of the Union address tonight, and I have little idea why. Like just about every SOTU, this was stultifying boring, a laundry list of problem-solution-applause break.

62 applause breaks. Probably the best workout most Congresspersons get all year.

I will say that Jim Webb's rebuttal for the Dems was just about the best I've seen. The freshman Senator was forceful and plainspoken and his populism and military background might go a long way in killing the technocrat/effete liberal image the party has.
