In the event you’re wondering what to make of the president’s State of the Union address tonight, there will be no shortage of people ready to help.

Like Sen. Mike Lee, the Utah Republican who’s a darling of the Tea Party. He’ll be delivering the Tea Party’s response to President Barack Obama’s address.

It’s not enough that his party will be delivering an official response, the one that Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers will make.

She doesn’t get a rostrum like the president, but she gets national TV time.

This is where you’ll find the senator from Utah:

His response may be more of a pre-sponse:

Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s “response” is ready as well.

There will be a Spanish-language response, por supuesto.

Before the speech is even finished, comedian Bill Maher will offer his take in real-time, tweeting from the Huffington Post’s #SOTU headquarters.

Roseanne Barr, the comedian who sort of ran for president in 2012, will deliver her own response after the address:

“LOL,” some say about all this handy help.
