State of the Union

Nothing out of the ordinary. Bush seemed a little more animated at times than usual. His timing on the nations making up our "unilateral coalition" was pretty good. His barbs directed across the aisle were reasonably subtle.

As expected, the Democrat's response is awfully weak, a bitter, direct, partisan, laundry list. Apparently George Bush can do nothing right. Say, did Nancy Pelosi actually just try to build a "real" international coalition by saying that she wants other nations soldiers to die instead of ours? Oh yea, everybody is going to sign up to that. And then Tom Daschle implied that its really bad if the economy isn't improved "the right way." Now, if only he'll finish with a Howard Dean yell.

DOWNDATE: And Tom Daschle then finishes by saying that the state of the union really isn't strong. Yawn.

Peter Douche (D) or whatever his name is was just on Fox trotting the "other countries" haven't had any soldiers die, so they don't count. Veeeerrrry diplomatic and nuanced.

British, Bulgarian, Danish, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Thai and Ukranian soldiers have lost their lives liberating Iraq. I guess their sacrifices don't count.
