My thoughts

I only watched the 2nd half of the State of the Union address last night. Nothing earth shattering was said, and it seemed to be a lot of fluff. There was far too much in the way of ovations. The speech would have been 40 minutes (maybe) if the people had saved clapping for important times. Whoever wrote the speech did a decent job, although I think he made up the word "Hitlerism."* Also, when talking about Iraq, and their weapons of mass destruction, if got VERY repetitive. How many times can one person say, "He's not accounted for these materials. He has given no evidence that he has destroyed them." We got the idea the first time.

Tonight is the state of the State address. I probably won't watch.

* "In each case, the ambitions of Hitlerism, militarism, and communism were defeated by the will of free peoples, by the strength of great alliances, and by the might of the United States of America."
