State of the Groundhog

I've seen this in several places.

Next year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address occur on the same day, February 2nd.

As Air America Radio pointed out, "It is an ironic juxtaposition of events: one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication while the other involves a groundhog."

Many sites leave off the reference to Air America. I assume they first said this in 2005 when the concurrence also happened and GWB was president. After all, AA no longer exists.

However it still rings true.
