Sarah Snarl

I always watch the State of the Union speech but rarely enjoy it. This was the most entertaining SOTU since Bill Clinton’s first after 12 years of Republican rule.

The way President Biden dealt with hecklers was to die for. KMac looked like he wanted to die. He’d asked his caucus to behave but they did not.

Was this KMac’s earworm during the speech?

My other favorite bit was when Biden talked about THE TALK that Black parents are obliged to have with their children about how to deal with the police. Tyre Nichols’ mother was in Dr. Biden’s box and was animated in agreement. Best “ordinary person” moment since President Reagan started the practice. Well done, Joey. Well done.

My motto as a blogger: when in doubt post a Kinks song.

That brings me to the Republican response delivered by the dread Sarah Huckabee Sanders hereinafter Sarah Snarl. She was elected Governor of Arkansas on the coattails of two terrible human beings: her father the former Governor and former President* Pennywise. Hence the featured image.

As a fan of unintentional comedy, I enjoyed her spiel. She kept going on and on about the new generation of Republican leaders. Clearly intended to point out Joe Biden’s age. There’s one problem: she’s a Trump acolyte. He’s only four years younger than Joe and on his best day was never as sharp as Biden was last night.

Sarah Snarl is a charmless and humorless person. She wears a perpetual glower on her overly made-up face. She reminds me of the only grade school teacher I didn’t like. I don’t remember her name, but she had a similar stern and sanctimonious demeanor. No wonder I forgot her name.

There were several laugh out loud moments during the response. Let’s dive in:

I’m the first woman to lead my state, and he’s the first man to surrender his presidency to a woke mob that can’t even tell you what woman is.”

The entire speech consisted of the wingnut cliches and jargon of the day. What exactly is a woke mob? I’m a liberal who supports transgender rights but I hate the word woke and mock it given half a chance.

I must have dreamt of Sarah Snarl’s spiel because I:

Here’s a second money quote:

The dividing line in America is no longer between right or left. The choice is between normal or crazy. It’s time for a new generation of Republican leadership.”

You mean like this, Sarah?

Marge brought the big crazy and the big coat. Whatever happened to Pat Nixon’s cloth Republican coat?

I’m not making a Cruella de Vil joke but in the immortal words of Bob Marley: “Who the cap fit, let them wear it.”

Just change coat to cap and Bob’s your uncle.

One more soundbite for the road:

We are under attack in a left-wing culture war we didn’t start and never wanted to fight. Every day we are told we must partake in their rituals, salute their flags and worship their false idols.”

Where do I begin? In fact, it’s a right-wing culture war and they started it. This is classic Trumper projection that even Buster Keaton as the projectionist in Sherlock Jr. could see through:

I nearly compared Buster’s deadpan demeanor to that of Sarah Snarl, but I don’t wander to defame a dead de-famous man. Besides, Buster Keaton was intentionally funny. Sarah Snarl is not.

This was the worst Republican response to a Democratic SOTU since this happened:

There’s long been talk of a SOTU response curse. It certainly struck former Gret Stet Governor PBJ DBA Bobby Jindal who is now the world’s youngest has been. Let’s hope a similar fate awaits Sarah Snarl.

The last word goes to Daryl Hall and John Oates with the song that inspired my new nickname for the scowling Arkansan. Just change smile to snarl and Bob’s your uncle. Bob has been busy today.

  1. Having Sarah deliver the Republican response is perfect for the party of Santos.

  2. GOP =
    Snarly Sarah is a good choice to spout senseless words. Who cares??
    Meanwhile, Scrappy Joe from Scranton is getting the job done which makes GOP more and more irrelevant.

  3. In a trailer somewhere in Georgia , a family is wondering what happened to their fuzzy toilet seat.
