CNN is the only network airing Rep. Michele Bachmann’s “Tea Party” response to the President’s State of the Union tonight. That’s in addition to the usual opposition party response, being given this time by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).
Reminds me of how back during the Bush years CNN would air a special SOTU response from the left-wing of the Democratic Party. Was it Bernie Sanders or Russ Feingold who did it? I forget. Oh, wait … no, that never happened.
