Tweet your followers, message your friends, and call your neighbors, because Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant will be delivering tonight's Socialist response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address!
President Obama is scheduled to start speaking around 6:00 pm (Pacific), with the official GOP response (from WA's own Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers!) scheduled to start around 6:45 pm, followed by the Tea Party Caucus response about 20 minutes later. So Sawant will start her Socialist State of the Union around 7:15ish, give or take.
And of course, we'll be live streaming her address
via our Stranger Video YouTube channel! Check back on Slog after the SOTU address for Sawant's Socialist response—we will embed the video in a post—or go to the live event YouTube page to watch directly or grab an embed code of your own. Then watch some righty heads explode in their own impromptu response!
Remember to check out all of The Stranger's SOTU coverage beginning at 6 pm tonight on Slog and on Twitter, and ending with Sawant's live address. So much fun!
UPDATE: Turns out Sawant's address will be streamed from the Seattle Channel's studios—better video quality for her, fewer bragging rights for us. Ah, well. Go to the live event YouTube page to watch directly or grab an embed code of your own.
