State Of The Union Reality Check

January 28th, 2008 | by Windspike |

Given that the Presidential Propaganda Catapult will be on full tilt this evening (and if you need proof of this just have a look at Laura Bush’s Guest roster for her box this evening), I thought I would post a question for us to consider today. This will follow below.

Q How long are we looking at? How long?

MS. PERINO: It’s still running at about 40 minutes, without any interruption s.

Q Without interruption . So it’s probably being closer to like 50 minutes.

MS. PERINO: Forty-five, 46 — I don’t know, it depends on how long the applause is.

Applause? Really, can anyone stomach the President and tune in live? I don’t think I’ll be able to endure with out a vomit bag at the ready. Admit it, are you going to watch live or click on something else? The upside of tonight’s address: This is George Bush’s last one. We will not have to endure another; ever! And for that, I’ll grant you is a whole other reason to issue some applause.

Remember some of the famous slogans that W proclaimed as he prognosticat ed about the future in years past?

I’m a uniter, not a divider

True state of the Union seems divided to me.

OBL, Dead or Alive?

No result either way there.

The State of our Economy is Strong.

Any one else lose value on their stock portfolios? Have their home foreclosed on them? How about that rate cut by the Fed? Is that an indicator that our economy is headed in the right direction? How about that continuous hemorrhaging of funds to the freedom spreading experiment in Iraq? Is that good for America?

The list goes on.

It’s your turn. Let’s call this….drum roll please…
