The Union Is Strong!

They all say that, don’t they? Despite the facts, our union is strong!

I thought Bush’s speech was pretty lame last night, but I still watched the whole thing, including the awful Dem who responded afterwards. Can’t Obama do that instead? Or someone without a goofy eyebrow who can read a teleprompter? These things matter, you know. People voted for Bush because they thought he was a guy they’d like to have a beer with. Forget that he’s a recovering alcoholic…

What did Bush say? A whole lot of nothing. At least Cindy Sheehan was kicked out of the proceedings for…wearing a t-shirt? The words and numbers on her shirt said a lot more about the state of our union than anything Bush said last night.

Anyway, Cardinal Bernadin getting taken to task by Elizabeth Bracken on Chicago Tonight was far more enjoyable viewing last night. How is the church not charged as an accomplice to these crimes? They cover up, they transfer, they do anything but take responsibility, and Bernadin had not one good answer for it. He should have had CYA in ashes on his forehead.

    yeah, that’s what i meant! i once was catholic, you know!

    they all seem interchangeable to me, is the truth, pope included. with slight variations.

    I completely understand; I just liked Bernadin more than Francis George.

    by the way, i didn’t see Nikkos’ comments on the previous post until after i put this up, don’t mean to steal the SOTU thunder from that one.

    i think the dem from virginia’s message was good, but he delivered it in such a halting way. was the teleprompter slow or what? i am a bipartisan critic, don’t let anyone tell you different! the dems are still lacking any fight and it’s killing me, and the country.

    Opposition!

    Plenty of thunder to go around, Senor Doom- rock on.

    As for the lack of real Democratic opposition, I agree: Kaine’s (and by extension, the Democrats’) failure to mention the NSA wiretapping scandal was criminally negligent.
