A humble soundtracking suggestion for the next State of the Union address

Posted By on Wed, Jan 21, 2015 at 2:52 PM

We've all been waiting for our centrist and sensible president to come out and be anything remotely like the radical Marxist muslim socialist Afrocentric Christian gun-meting crazed super-liberal president that the Koch bros. and Roger Ailes would have one believe he is.

Next year, I want him to step onstage just holding this record, place it onto one of those old school heavy duty Califone turntables used in every elementary school until 1990, turn it up, drop his mic, and leave the stage. After all, by then, the richest 1% will own more than half of all the wealth in the world.

Of course, nothing close to that will happen. But a guy can dream can't he? A guy can dream.
