Forget Dueling Banjos – We’re heading for dueling SOTU’s between Trump & Pelosi

It has all the hallmarks of an 1861-style spectacle in the making.

President Donald Trump, having been dis-invited from delivering the annual State of the Union speech in the House of Representatives chamber by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, gives the address from the Oval Office or possibly the Senate Chamber.

Pelosi then gives The Democrat (#Resistance) Rebuttal from the dais in the House Chamber.

Can you say Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis?

I can’t think of any other time in American history that two essentially competing SOTU speeches have ever been given save during the Civil War.

And from two separate seats of government yet – dueling banjos style.

I think it would be a Yuge Mistake for President Trump to give the speech away from Washington and an even bigger unforced error to do it in a MAGA rally type setting.

The SOTU is a report to the nations’s citizenry (yeah I know – Congress, but really it’s a bully pulpit aimed at the American populace at-large.)  It should be done in a respectful and bi-partisan manner (at least aimed for that way anyhow) not as a rah-rah team pep rally.

Hey, when we hired El Donaldo to helm the Resolute Desk we knew it was gonna be A Ride Like No Other.

And so far it’s been The Ride of A Lifetime.

Strozek, along with his alter-egos the decadent, drug-addled Sixties refugee Uncle Bruno and his intolerably feminist SJW Cousin Brunoetta have been riding the not-yet crested wave of deplorability with posts covering politics, sports, entertainment and zombies.

Aptly described as both "hilarious and deeply disturbed" Strozek has enthusiastically embraced the recommendation of the late Raoul Duke that "when the going gets weird the weird turn pro."

Although he has fallen far short of his bucket-list goal of writing for such respectable rags as The National Enquirer and The Weekly World News Strozek is grateful for the opportunity to pen his unhinged screeds at Sparta Report and is constantly amazed and delighted at the reception his pieces receive in the cements.
