State of the Union

January 30, 2006
George W. Bush will be giving his annual State of the Union address this evening and it certainly looks to be a great show. Here’s a preview:
  • Several articles about tonight’s address claim that because of Bush’s dwindling approval rating combined with the U.S. economy’s poor performance and rising gas prices, tonight’s speech will focus on patching up our perception of the administration from the oil-loving, hatemongering fascists they appear to be to the freedom-loving, good samaritans they really are.
  • Possible topics for discussion include improved health policy, extended tax cuts, and the renewal of the USA PATRIOT Act.

All in all, tonight’s State of the Union address, if the name were to accurately portray the content of the speech, could be one word long: “Shitty.”
