One quick comment about the SOTU from W. (which I didn't watch; I don't need to sit around and be lied to on my Tuesday nights)
Remember all of those scary WMD's Bush loudly proclaimed last year? Think he'd just avoid the issue this year? Pretend it didn't happen? Of course not. Because W. exists in a universe where he can do no wrong and reality will bend to his every word. So he actually BRAGGED about what they found. You know, the NOTHING they found. He bragged about it. Didn't call it nothing, of course. What did he boast about finding in Iraq?
Weapons of mass destruction-related program activities.
I guess after their over-predictions of last year, now they'll just qualify the hell out of everything and pretend it means something. Because we found ourselves some weapons of mass destruction-related program activities. Weapons of Mass Destruction? Well, no. WMD programs? Not that either. WMD activities? Nope. But we did get us some weapons of mass destruction-related program activities.
Yep. And that, of course, was Blatent lying-related program activities.
