George Will has called for the amendment of the Constitution to eliminate the words that say the President “shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union.”  

Will calls the address now undignified, unnecessary, unedifying, a circus, and vulgar - in his first paragraph.

On the evening of the event he appeared to be passing a kidney stone. The spectacle has worsened.

President Reagan first employed the human prop; I fear that soon there will be an entire orchestra pit for the purpose. It is terribly awkward for military and Supreme Court attendees.  

“Information”?  This is information such as may be found on the [Democratic/Republican] National Committee website. 

The responses (three and counting) add little.  It is time to put a fork in the State of the Union Address.
