[Ed. – Who knew Young was such a masochist?]
Instead of a typical SOTU watch party, I chose to attend Rep. Maxine Waters’ State of the Union screening and watch with young Democratic Party staffers to gauge their reactions and see what moved or didn’t move them.
The night started with a speech from Ms. Waters … about why she wasn’t going to be sitting in the U.S. Capitol for the speech. She stated that she wouldn’t give an impeached president the respect of sitting through his speech in person. … The hour before this, she had given friendly interviews to the Huffington Post, The Root and other liberal publications that somehow still find her repetitive statements newsworthy.
I was seated in the middle of staffers, interns and an “activist.” The activist, who was the only interesting person in the building, had been arrested multiple times and was happy to brag about it.
