What no drone invited in the spirit of bipartisanship?

Well, compare and contrast amongst the invitees to Tonight's State of the Union.
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), who threatened President Obama with impeachment over his plan to reduce gun violence, has offered a ticket to the State of the Union to Ted Nugent — whose criticism of the president once resulted in a sitdown with the Secret Service.

“I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama,” Stockman said in a statement Monday. “After the Address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”
Yeah, I'm sure this pair of invitees would be happy not to hear it:
A White House official says the parents of a Chicago teenager slain just days after performing during President Barack Obama's inauguration will attend his State of the Union speech. Hadiya Pendleton, 15, was shot to death Jan. 29 in a park close to the Obama's Chicago home. Police say a gunman hopped a fence and opened fire on a group of young people.
And which one will our Villagers point their cameras at?

You know the answer already.

Ted Nugent provides vital representation for the mean-crazy-stupid wing of the Republican Party. That’s as important as Michele Bachmann representing the crazy-stupid-mean wing, or Louie Gohmert representing the mean-stupid-crazy wing.

Sometimes you can’t tell the players without a scorecard.
