Democrats rebut probable GOP rebuttal to SOTU that hasn’t happened yet

President Barack Obama isn’t giving his State of the Union address for another 12 hours, and I’m already tired of it. Just because the whole thing is a hollow farce doesn’t mean Washington can’t figure out a way to hollow it out a little bit more.

Chris Moody reports:

In preparation for President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night, the Democratic National Committee on Monday gathered lawmakers for a conference call with reporters to offer a “prebuttal” to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s not-yet-delivered Republican rebuttal to Obama’s not-yet-delivered national address.

“Given the late hour [scheduled for Rubio's on-camera response] we thought this would be a good opportunity for us to make some comments about what we anticipate based on the record that we have that Sen. Rubio is likely to address and how we would respond to that,” DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse said on the call.

“Before we stand up and lie to your faces again, here’s why you shouldn’t believe what the other guys are probably going to say about our lies.” Hey, did you know Marco Rubio wants to strangle your grandma or something?

I just want to go back to bed and sleep until 2016. Have they invented a pill for that yet? Does Obamacare cover it? If not, why are they denying my access to the Rip Van Winkle pill? Etc.

Update: DNC caught trying to deceive reporters about identity of Rubio critic. Too bad they didn’t do a “prebuttal” of that.
