Over the weekend I wrote about the effort to make the seating at the upcoming State of the Union address bipartisan.

It’s as yet undecided if the two parties will collectively mix (probably not because not a single Republican in the House has signed on to the idea), but two Senators from opposite parties will do just that. Chuck Schumer called Tom Coburn and, like, totally asked if they could sit together:

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that after Udall’s call, he called Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and asked if he wanted to sit together during the speech.

Coburn said yes.

No word yet on whether or not the two will exchange letterman sweaters and class rings.

Such a cute headline though, isn’t it?


If all goes well they’re going to go out for a malted after the speech. Fingers crossed!

    Wow – November 2nd is such a distant memory for these guys! Do they know they are being watched by the electorate? Perhaps they will get the message in 2012 when they are thrown out of office.

    I`m still wondering, if the proposed mixed seating arrangement comes to be, will there be the equivalent of the parochial school sister with a ruler to smack the hands of "touchers, snickerers and note passers" ?!

    BTW, Doug, I think that picture depicts the liberal spin on what`s been happening over the last several years !

    Do you think they'll make out?

    Someone tell Coburn to watch his back, Chucky's not to be trusted.

    In matters of "cross-the-aisle" sex, I would expect no kissing, no thank you`s and absolutely no respect in the morning !

    That`s good advice for Coburn, and have him watch both of Chucky`s hands !

    Coburn will take heat over this, like when he said Nancy Pelosi was a nice person. Fortunately he is on his last of self imposed term limit.

    Mark had good things to say about MM. He told his producer to send the link to David Gregory at "Meet The Press" regarding Gregory's diatribe to Coburn about rhetoric from the right. …. Tonight's Show

    That's a great "You Know You Made It " IMO. For those that don't know this, Rush's Go-To Guy on Constitutional matters is Mark Levin. Good For Michelle :)
