Pelosi asks Trump to postpone SOTU until gov’t reopens; UPDATE: Dems planned move for “months”?

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved:
And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.
“During the 19th Century and up until the presidency of Woodrow Wilson,” Pelosi writes, “these annual State of the Union messages were delivered to Congress in writing.” True enough, and a tradition worth restoring, especially to reverse the treatment of the president as some kind of feudal lord in Congress. These events have been mainly characterized for their vacuity and obsequiousness rather than for any memorable substance.
But who are we really kidding here? --->

State of the union address is dumb. Always has been, no matter who is pres. This is great news if it sticks.
