He's signing autographs?

For some awful reason that I don't know myself, I watched the State of the Union address. I don't get it. After every fucking sentence people stand up and applaud. Everyone has to try to be center of attention, deciding what they are going to stand up and applaud to. You need any evidence that the presidency is nothing but a popularity contest? The fucking president of the United States of America signed fucking autographs for fifteen minutes after his speech. Autographs! Our president thinks he's fucking Mikey Mantle...

Now, I've never made it all the way through a State of the Union before, so it's possible that Clinton, Old Bush, Reagan, ect.. all did the same autograph signing thing, but it's still tacky as hell. You're the fucking president, you just the speech summing up what you want to do in your final year in office, and you're going to finish it up by signing autographs? He's a fucking public servant. You don't get the autograph of your mailman, do you?

This is the problem with today's politics, the only people who get into it anymore are just seeking out fame and fortune, and it's definitely there for the taking. Fuck doing anything for your country. Just get in and grab what you can before you get kicked out or arrested.
