As boring as today’s State of the Union address is guaranteed to be, one thing about the whole ridiculous spectacle is still sure to entertain: the accompanying partisan bickering. Thanks to the magic of Twitter, we can now experience all of the spinning, spatting, and snarking from both sides of the aisle in real time.
Below are the live Tweets of a few dozen liberal pundits and partisans on the left-hand side of the screen and a few dozen conservative pundits and partisans on the right-hand side of the screen. You can see what both sides are saying about Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ response for the GOP, and Sen. Rand Paul’s personal response while watching the entire bloody affair on your TV or via the player above. And on the off chance that any news actually does happen, you’ll be the first to see that too! Welcome to tweet alley.
