Cut the Fat

I call for more ruthless editing of State of the Union addresses in my latest AmSpec column.

At least Bush's laundry list of proposals was shorter than the ones Clinton used to recite. Clinton seemed to go on for hours enumerating all the various ways he planned to dispose of our money.

If we really want to shorten SOTU addresses, maybe we could cut down on the extended applause after every couple of syllables. Then again, I would really miss watching Democrats have to stand up and clap with their teeth gritted, again and again and again.
