McDonnell to Give Response to Obama's SOTU

The night Scott Brown was elected former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum told Greta Van Susteren it would be "a no-brainer" to pick Scott Brown to give the GOP response to President Obama's State of the Union address next week.

However, it will be Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell who will speak for the GOP on Wednesday night. Earlier today, McDonnell was formally sworn into office.

All things considered it would probably be a more powerful statement if Brown was actually inside the Senate during the State of the Union address. But what if he isn't sworn in by then? Well, methinks one of his new Republican Senate colleagues should arrange for Brown to sit in the public gallery. The presence of Brown in the Senate gallery rather than on the Senate floor would symbolize the both the obstruction of Harry Reid and the arrogance of President Obama towards the wishes of the people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
