Half assed blogging of the State of the Union
8:46 – Breaking: Cindy Sheehan arrested.. the SOTU hasn’t even started yet and this is already awesome. For what we do not know, in need of some of those wiretaps..
8:49 – these live pictures look like a DC version of the red carpet – lots of famously important people, but not so much for the eye candy. And by important we mean those of us who have been to college and know who Joe Biden is.
8:53 – loving these Nixon and Vietnam comparisons.. mandates are us.
8:54 – Cindy Sheehan brought an antiwar sign (which is obviously illegal, actually all are) to the party and thus the reason for her arrest. Dumbass. Hope she doesn’t get stuck in the Capitol drunk tank. Or actually, take that back.
8:55 – shot of Harriet Miers, still rocking the fem mullet, a femullet if you will.
8:58 – shout out Obama.. mmm.
8:59 – Laura’s got cotton candy pink suit and I want it. I wonder how her hair stays so helmet like though.
9:00 – T-minus 5 min.. I wonder if they need seat fillers?
9:01 – Alito’s first appearance.. recognized him by his bald spot. How’s today for a job orientation?
9:06 – all this fashion talk, I wonder if anyone is rocking the Supreme Court robes commando? NEW GUY! NEW GUY! Consider it a right of passage.
9:09 – is W wearing a purple tie? Ballsy.
9:11 – still applauding.. drink break.
9:12 – aww, Cheney and Hastert coordinated their outfits. They are also secretly holding hands behind the podium.
9:12 – first standing ovation of the speech.
9:15 – first 9/11 reference. Chug.
9:17 – talks of liberating other countries.. write these down, your kids are getting shipped there next week.
9:17 – ZING! bin Laden mention.
9:19 – “There is no honor in retreat” but by honor we aren’t referring to questionably legal wiretapping.
9:22 – Oh, we are winning the war. Who knew?
9:24 – “Hindsight is NOT wisdom”. So, fool me once..
9:26 – shots of the audience would be way more exciting if they were wearing Gucci instead of Jones New York. Hollywood for ugly people I suppose.
9:27 – “Let us never forget the sacrifices of America’s military families.” Unless your name is Cindy Sheehan.
9:30 – IRAN WANTS NUKULAR WEAPONS!
9:31 – [on Iran] “America respects you, and respects your country. We want to be friends.” And by friends we want to come over and play with our tanks.
9:34 – Organized crime? Since when was this an issue? Is Tony Soprano a seat filler?
9:39 – tax cuts = economic growth. Now if only we were wealthy enough to get one of those.
9:41 – I think Cheney has just broken a sweat with all the up-and-down ovations. I hope the Cabinet stretched properly prior to making their entrance.
9:42 – Clinton joke. Hilary is not amused.
9:43 – “Congress did not act on my plan for social security.” Standing ovation, dems. Hilary is happy again.
9:51 – “Here we have a serious problem: America is addicted to oil.” They say admitting it is the first step..
9:54 – does W even know what ethanol is?
9:57 – human-animal hybrids! Are we gonna make unicorns and leprechauns too?
9:58 – en summary, hybrid cars = good. hybrid mutants = bad.
10:01 – HIV/AIDs chatter.. but contraception is not allowed if you’re a teenager.
10:03 – all over folks.. do you think he’s gonna kiss Leiberman again?
10:04 – Breaking: Sheehan arrested for a T-SHIRT.
10:06 – is he giving out autographs? Yes, yes he is. Hope he signs some boobs.
10:06 – Bush has “much more modest initiatives this year”. Guess we should cancel our tickets to Mars.
