Being a powerful, influential blogger or because e-mail is essentially free and I was accidentally added to an e-mail list (I am not sure which) I just received a preview press release on the President’s SOTU address.

Here’s what I see:

  • The need for the US to be a leader in the world (boilerplate from every post-9/11 speech the prez has given).
  • The US must spread freedom and not retreat within our own borders (freedom is good).
  • Families are important, and economic growth is good (who knew?).
  • We need alternative fuel sources (the whole “addicted to oil” bit, which is shaping up to be a key soundbite).

  • We must do something about health care (although exactly what, the press release doesn’t day).
  • Compassion is good (compassionate conservative on the march again).

Hmm, maybe those are excerpts from last year’s speech…

Well, that was an exciting press release, now wasn’t it?

(I must confess, I am in a flippant mood about tonight’s speech, we’ll see if that spills over into whatever liveblogging I do tonight).

    [...] comedian. This year, I up the ante with a visual comparison: I report, you decide. (Toldja I was in a flippant mood).

    There’s an hour of my life I’ll never get back, although it would have been better had they let Sheehan stay. GOP congressmen should be begging for her and Ramsey Clark to come to protest their reelection rallies this year.

blog advertising is good for you
