State of which Union?

According the Washington Post, President Bush is planning to convey "optimism" in tonight's State of the Union address. Optimism? About what?

I'm all for looking at things from a "glass is half full" perspective, but come on! Bush's glass is so empty, it makes the Mojave Desert look like the Land of 10,000 Lakes in comparison.

That said, I just can't get too excited about the address. Frankly, Bush continually spews nothing but lies and falsehoods, which only makes my blood boil. It's not as though there is any sort of debate taking place that would force him to defend his position on things. Now that would be entertaining...and maybe even just a bit informative. Instead, we'll get just more of the same one-sided garbage he throws out to the myriad pre-screened audiences he and his handlers seem to favor so immensely. After a while, you just can't take it anymore.

This administration has become such an embarassment, but what's even more embarassing is that 40% - give or take - of Americans still contend that Bush is doing a good job. Are these people INSANE?!!

As I watch the President tonight, if I watch the President tonight (with TiVo, I may even watch tomorrow instead), I constantly will be reminded by looking at Bush - and Vice President Cheney sitting behind him - that these men and many of their cohorts should be going to jail. They and their ilk essentially are nothing but criminals.

Perhaps this bunch should be appearing on "America's Most Wanted" instead. Now that I would watch!
