Andrew Sullivan was briefed on the SOTU, and then he was scolded for revealing that he was briefed. The administration didn't even bother to brief me. I've been getting mail from "Barack" at my blog email account when the administration has something they really want to push. They found me; I didn't contact them, but clearly I've been deemed a Level-2 or Level-3 or maybe it's a Level-10 influencer, not worthy of a Level-1 SOTU briefing.
It's no big deal. I'm not even planning to watch the SOTU address. Never do. I prefer to wait for others to report on the meat, if there is any.
