Steve Stockman Plans Ahead for 2014 State of the Union

Let it not be said that Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, isn't thinking about the future.

In the midst of a government shutdown and a looming default on the debt limit, Stockman released this statement Monday: "Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) will announce Tuesday his invited guest to January’s State of the Union Address. Stockman’s guest to the 2013 address was musician and gun activist Ted Nugent."

We eagerly await the announcement, although it will be hard to top Uncle Ted.
