Once again fully embracing social networking even when he probably shouldn’t, President Obama has announced that he will subject himself to another livestream interview on YouTube next Thursday as a follow-up to Tuesday’s State Of The Union address. Those wishing to submit questions should keep them to “about 20 seconds long” and remember that, as we learned during Obama’s last YouTube-based interview in 2010, he doesn’t want to talk about marijuana, even if users vote for it this time too. It’s sort of like a modern-day version Roosevelt’s fireside chats, if Roosevelt's fireplace were actually a cage of frenzied howler monkeys calling each other gay.
