...Into your cyber-time of late, we have been out of commission here at The Eight for the last two weeks or so. We won't say that there's been nothing in that time that might have been reported on our pages, but the SOTU is almost always a non-story, never more so than this year. Hindsight being average, we feel justified in ignoring it here.
If you're looking for some Standing Eight-Style outrage, stay tuned in the coming days, and to hold you over, this is pretty disgusting:
