State of the Union...

...was not just a great song by New Order. State of the Union. SOTU, which bears some resemblance to STFU, which appears to be the message to Cindy Sheehan.

After reading the speech (I can no longer stand to listen to Bush verbally), I then checked out 2005's SOTU address. Little difference.

But it is interesting to look backwards. About one year ago we were treated to talk of a free and soverign Iraq, talk of reducing government spending, increasing education, even medical liability reform. Nice words, and it really is a shame that they have no bearing or reference to reality. Then there was the social security crisis, which Bush dropped like a bomb over Iraq when it turned out to be a no go.

One tragic thing that occurs when I read the 2005 speech is a realization. Essentially, Bush could have repeated his 2005 speech verbatim - nothing changed since then other than poll numbers.

I can't listen to him either...but I can't even read what he says without getting a headache.

I know that the 36 billion dollar profit posted by Exxon/Mobil was not the oil that we are addicted to, right?

People asked me if I tivoed the state of the union. I looked at them like they were crazy and explained, "No, I watched Dudley Do Right instead. Same drivel, more humor and a much better message."
