We all remember Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You lie” outcry to President Obama during a joint session of Congress in late 2009. Many were concerned there might be another at tonight’s State of the Union, given the degree of partisanship we’ve seen recently from both Houses of Congress. And most breathed a sigh of relief after President Obama finished delivering his State of the Union remarks.
Many, but not those following Georgia Republican Congressman Paul Broun, who spent the entire State of the Union “live-tweeting” his impressions to all of his 3204 followers on Twitter. (For non-Twitter folks, 3204 followers is not a lot. I’m lucky to have over 8500, and I’m pretty much nobody.)
