THE PLANK JANUARY 23, 2007
If Bush's speech had contained more of fresh substance I might not resort to this, but... I never thought I'd hear a State of the Union applause line praising someone who "borrowed some equipment, and began filming children's videos in her basement." As a friend writes: "I can't believe no one found that phrasing awkward or evocative." Heh.
Meanwhile, it's a pity Democrats couldn't persuade Dikembe Mutumbo to stand and give Bush's speech a good old finger-wag; this video is actually a neat metaphor for what the Dems intend to do to Bush's agenda.
