No big surprises in W's State of the Union address. Well, except for the human/animal hybrid line. I didn't realize that had become a topic of note on the Hill. Of course, we'll have uneducated yokels thinking we're creating mermaid sex workers instead of learning a few things about how DNA works.
The gaping canyon between the Dems and Republicans was glaring with the standing applause splits at exactly 50%. And, yes, Hilary... I think we all saw that slight rueful shake of the head when W was "tellin' it like it is" on Iraq.
And Dan Clay's young wife... would it have killed you to flash a peace sign? That would have been huge.
W said "math and science, like, three times. That is all fine and good, of course. But I get concerned that funding for the Arts will continue to dry up and continue to get pushed to the side. There is more to a well-rounded person than the ability to crunch numbers - there is more to life than just Math and Science. Not everyone is going to be happy as a scientist.
Of course, what the hell is another good writer going to do for the economy?
