Tea Party Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito are expected to skip to night's State of the Union address -- David Koch's invited them to watch the Clippers-Mavericks game projected on a massive screen at Lincoln Center's 2,500-seat David H. Koch Theater instead, I think, unless I just made that up -- but I will be here to liveblog the entire unpredictable and thrilling event. So come on back to the War Room at 8 PM eastern for up-to-the-minute standing ovation counts and close readings of the body language of the members of Congress silly enough to agree to sit next to people from the other party. I assume the full text of Obama's remarks will leak online soon enough, too, so we can focus on the really important stuff, like Joe Biden's facial expressions.
