...is give war a chance!
I skipped out on last night's speech. I caught about 30 seconds on the radio, during which amount of time the emporer-in-chief said "September 11" and "terrorists" at least twice.
If anyone listened or watched the speech, do chime in.
Or check out Jim Webb's response.

I tried to watch but had to skip out when W started introducing his special guests. It was a drone of rah-rah, we're gonna win, 9/11, Iraq, War on Terra (tm), sops to domestic issues -- particularly the already widely panned attempt to further tax the middle class in order to pretend he really wants to provide universal health coverage, followed by a belly-laugh-inducing line about "from whom much is given, much is expected. Except his wealthy supporters, I presume.

"from whom much is given, much is expected" In Rethuglican land that reads:"from whom much is taken, much is expected."

You should check out Chuck Hagel's reaction, it is pure gold...

Is that Bush channeling Will Ferrell in a SOTU edition "Springtime for Hitler?"
Germany was having trouble
What a sad, sad story
Needed a new leader to restore
Its former glory
Where, oh, where was he?
Where could that man be?
We looked around and then we found
The man for you and me
And now it's...
Springtime for Hitler and Germany
Deutschland is happy and gay!

Started off playing a drinking game having to do with the phrases '9/11' and 'troops', but passed out 4 minutes into the speech.

I thought about playing the drinking game but realized even AA members would laugh at me.

I played the drinking game without even watching...

I counted at least six references to September 11 or 9/11.

Oh, and "terrorist(s)" was mentioned at least 16 times. I fisked it here.

So, um, did anyone else know that the SURGE has already happened. I was listening to the NY Times podcast this morning, and it was just casually slipped in that "sectarian fighting has intensified as the first of 21,000 new troops arrive in Iraq."
HUH? The asshole did it despite all the opposition? Someone please explain to me again why impeachment investigations aren't running full steam ahead?

Operation Surging Freedom has already begun? Well I'll be damned. I shouldn't have put it past our unitary executive to bypass Congress.
After all, George W. Bush is the Decider, the supreme creator and executor of law, the state, the most High, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords and the Son of Man.

I think the troops were sent about 5 minutes after the "surge" was first announced. The bumbleshrub didn't wait for any approval. He's the deciderer, so he doesn't have to. I watched the speesh on and off, tuned out when he started his guest stars thing, but I honestly couldn't believe he used 9/11 AGAIN. It made me laugh. Well, most of the speesh made me laugh. Did you see Pelosi's pained face? She did NOT applaud when the bumbleshrub talked about his healthcare fiasco of a plan. Good for her.
