Subject: Groundhog Day and the
State of the Union Address


This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union Address fall on the same day.

It is an ironic juxtaposition: one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication.

The other involves a
groundhog.


This is very funny, but the state of the union address was today, and groundhog's day is February 2nd.  The source appears to be Al Franken, and the joke pops up in the years of Bush, for those who aren't overly particular about actual dates.
