We Can't Hear You--La La La La!

On SFGate.com, the headline reads "Democrats on Bush: 'There is a Better Way.'"

The lede paragraph begins:
"Democrats, who hope to regain control of the House and Senate this year, are expected to countere President Bush's take on the state of the nation, saying "there is a better way" to govern."

They have their arguments all marshalled. Their rebuttal is ready--and released to the press. And they still have 90 minutes to go before they actually hear the speech!

Why don't they just give the d...ned speech for him? Why waste his time and that of his speechwriters?

There is not even a pretense of courtesy anymore.
