1. I listened to Cathy last night and noticed that what she said had little to do with the SOTU speech.

 

Why did I get the feeling she was talking to elementary level kids? Granted she is a Republican, but is she not used to having adults in the room? Never mind, I just realized she isn't.

2. Yeah, she managed to be both vaucous and patronizing. Here's my transcript of her speech:

"We are going to do stuff because of America. Because of people. Because of people like you and me! Because of freedumb.
Oh yeah, the poor are just like a kid with an extra 21st chromosome: challenged! I worked at McDonalds!
I put my hand on a Bible! God Bless everyone!"

3. She and Ileana Ros- Lehtinen gave the exact same speech!

But are we still drunk, or is it pretty fucking weird that the two women gave the same speech, with just the personal anecdotes changed? Are we getting our feminist knickers in a feminist twist over nothing, or would two men not be expected to interchangeably mouth their platitudes without even a pretense that those were their own thoughts and words? Here, Fox, please splainer:

Ros-Lehtinen spokesman Keith Fernandez said Monday that the Florida congresswoman was working on translating McMorris Rodgers’ planned speech and that the Spanish version would be essentially the same content as its English companion, with personal anecdotes or references changed.
