2013 State of Union GOP Response

Marco Rubio
Marco Rubio explains to his special imaginary friend why President Obama’s State of The Union proposals for a path to citizenship for the country’s 11 million illegal aliens (mostly of Mexican or South American descent) would be BAD for those folk. The GOP believes Rubio will be able to convince Mexicans and South Americans of this lie as he himself, 3 or 4 generations ago, is of indeterminate Spanish origin.

The first televised opposition response to a State of The Union address, to my memory, was back in ’66.

The critique of President Johnson’s message was offered by then Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL), with House Minority Leader Gerald Ford (R-MI) looking on.

Johnson had Dirksen shot the next morning. 1

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has been given the nod to read the official GOP response late Tuesday night. 2

In the spirit of the times the execution took place right before dawn on the South Lawn of the White House, away from the media. Dirksen famously eschewed the blindfold, though did partake in the offered last cigarette {a Carlton} and -this was LBJ’s famous addition to the ritual – a drink. Dirksen asked for and received two fingers of Old Crow, no ice. When he finished the whiskey, he handed the tumbler back to the White House steward and reportedly told Johnson, “You’re an overbearing SOB, Light Bulb, but at least you’ve manners. Which is more than I can say for most the pricks in this town. C’mon, let’s get this over with.”
  2. While most political spectators do not expect President Obama to have Rubio summarily dispatched, we wouldn’t rule out the possibility of the Commander in Chief sending a drone up Rubio’s ass. You know, just because…

Something to say...?
