The post after 09/09/09 09:09 will be live blogging the live bloggers covering the President's speech to a joint session of Congress.

Announcement: DWSUWF will be reprising the wildly popular "Live Blogging the Live Bloggers" series tonight.

It has been almost a year since this blog's last LBTLB effort. Tonight's coverage will be notable for several reasons. For one, this will be the first LBTLB not covering a political debate. We are not sure how well the format will work in a non-debate setting. But then, we were never sure how well it worked in a debate setting.

For those unfamiliar with the form, we select a variety of bloggers from across the political spectrum, and live blog their live blog efforts, ripping copying selections of their content and pasting it here. I don't know who we will include tonight, but bloggers we have ripped used before, include Daily Kos from the left, VodkaPundit or Ed Morrissey at HotAir from the right, either David Weigel at Reason or the Atlantic's Megan McArdle for a libertarian point of view and Moderate Voice or Donklephant as a voice from the center. Snark has also been drawn from Wonkette and/or Stinque as needed. Suggestions for potential live blogging sources are welcomed.

There are risks. DWSUWF is assuming that many other bloggers will indeed be live-blogging the President's speech. If not, we will have no one to rip quote and the whole concept crashes and burns in an epic fail. We expect this will not be a problem. After all, it is the bottom of the ninth and expectations are high for this historic speech which is clearly a last ditch effort, and a game changer that will reenergize his health care reform effort. Unless of course, it is too late to turn it around.

Finally, this post is notable because the fortuitous combination of date, timing, and numerology permit us to offer this video of the Beatles and the longest set up for the least funny, and most forced video pun in the history of blogdom. You are welcome.

UPDATE: We are off and live-blogging - sort of.

Divided and Balanced.™
Now that is fair.
