I had better things to do than watch W.’s State o’ the Union tonight. Like clean the lint from between my toes and clip my fingernails. Okay, not really. We actually watched part of disk two of the first season of The Sopranos (we’re a little behind). That’s a more entertaining form of organized crime.
Now, on the one hand, it is pretty clear that I didn’t miss much. As I type this (waiting up for The Daily Show), I’m watching ABC News “after the speech” coverage, and it is just clear they are killing time here. One of the commentators said something along the lines of “there was nothing really new here; it was as if he ‘cut-and-pasted’ passages from recent speeches, even some things from past State of the Union speeches.”
On the other hand, I wish I would have had a chance to play this absolutely hilarious GW Bush drinking game. I’d even be willing to play the suit, if that’s what it would take. (Thanks to Andre for the link).
