state of the union

TheFaceOfGrief.gif

(Picture NOT taken last night. Cindy dressed as a hooded, desert-dwelling character from Star Wars for the SOTU speech.)

I suppose that I ought to write a thoughtful, profound post full of deep insight and intellectual analysis about last night's State of the Union address. In fact, I probably should have "live-blogged" the event, just to demonstrate what a serious, thoughtful, profound, insightful, intellectual, analytical masturbatory pajama journalist I am.

But I couldn't figure out how to blog and trim my toenails at the same time, so I didn't blog. I will, however, offer a brief recap of what I remember about last night.

1) My toenails looked a lot better after I trimmed them.

2) Cindy Sheehan was arrested for attempting to show her ass protest against the war. Take a look at the picture above. See where the cop has his hand? See the orgasmic expression on her face? Now I understand what REALLY motivates Cindy Sheehan. The slut.

3) Democrats cheered themselves for wrecking any attempt at Social Security reform, proving once again that they are pure vandals at heart.

4) Best line of the speech: "Second-guessing is not a strategy." Of COURSE it isn't, if you're a Democrat. Vandalism is.

5) I would rather look at my feet than see Hillary Clinton's face on my television. That woman gives me a case of the galloping fantods.

6) Why did the Supreme Court justi wear their flowing black robes to this event? Do they sleep in that get-up? To ME, they resembled a bunch of voodoo priests sitting there dressed that way. Of course, that's exactly what they ARE...

7) I wondered, so I'm gonna ask. Ladies: Do you think George Bush is a handsome man? I do, although I'm not really qualified to make that assessment. (Hell--- Bill Clinton gives me the creeps but a lot of wimmen think HE is sexy.) Y'all give me an honest answer.

8) Between now and 2008, am I gonna hear "there's GOT to be a better way" until I puke? That's a perfect mantra for the Democrats. It doesn't offer any answers, but it IS vandalistic.

9) Bush wore a blue necktie.

See? I really DID watch the speech. (And this guy live-blogged it. Sorta.)

George Bush is pleasant looking. Bill Clinton (on the other hand) has always reminded me of WC FIELDS (with that bulbous nose) I never found anything attractive about the man.

The SUPREMES always wear their robes to the SOTU speech. I kind of miss Rehnquist though, as his robe had them crazy yellow stripes on the sleeves...
I fell asleep halfway thru the speech....although I did stay awake long enough to see Hillary Clinton looking as if she was sucking on lemons (and clapping as if her hands each weighed 50 lbs)

I really do think W is handsome. During the campaign when the "fake but accurate" memo thingy was going on, I kept thinking just keep showing his TANG picture, that was one hot pilot.

Posted by: Raging Mom on February 1, 2006 10:57 AM

I do think he's attractive now. Didn't used to, but older men have an effect on me. I never thought Clinton was hot - and the fact that he messed with Monica Lewinski confirmed it for me.

Oh. I was watching NBC, and I LOVED the picture of Sheehan they put up when they announced her arrest. True colors.

Posted by: Jane on February 1, 2006 11:10 AM

Is Bush a handsome man? No.

Posted by: Theresa on February 1, 2006 11:18 AM

Who did the Presidents hair? Looked like he had "helmet head".

I hit the rack when they showed the Dhimmi Crats cheering about stopping the Social Security reform.

I support the President. I think he understands if I catch an extra 30 minutes sleep and avoid watching the "Mainstream" response.

GWB very attractive man. Slick Willie always had a perv auro about him.

What's a "fantod," and how fast do they gallop?

Is it just me, or does Time Kaine really sound like Mr. Rogers. Jeez, he's my governor, but I sure didn't vote for him.

Posted by: Ed on February 1, 2006 11:45 AM

I stopped watching when the camera panned on Hilary, Yuck! I'd just eaten dinner! You'd think they'd warn a body.
Bush did, indeed wear a blue tie.

What speech?

Posted by: Catfish on February 1, 2006 12:34 PM

For my money the only handsome president we ever had was JFK. But I'm more interested in your toe nails A-man. All these wimmen been posting theirs for you, how about a little reciprocal toe porn from your end?

Posted by: Libby on February 1, 2006 01:17 PM

what makes GW handsome is his character. He is a man's man, IMO. I'm a sucker for a man with a cowboy mentality, thus the reason I married the man I married. Hardcore New Mexican, wild wild west, metal welding, wood cutting, do-it-yourself cowboy he is. But I do think GW got screwed in the hair dept. That crap just flies around in all different directions no matter what they do to it. I blame Barbara.

I can't frickin stand Cindy Sheehan. I want to vomit on her face when I see her. She has the epitome of a liberal left-wing nut visage. ugh. Aren't I a lovely person?

Posted by: Danielle on February 1, 2006 01:39 PM

I admit ... I'm a sucker for Dubya. He is really, really cute. I get whatever the good version of vapors are when I see him.

Posted by: erica on February 1, 2006 02:34 PM

I think Dubya has a ruggedness about him that many women (COUNT ME IN) find attractive. It would be a cold day in hell to find him sporting any PINK tie like Daschle used to wear.

You just have the feeling that the man could not only take care of himself but could and WOULD protect you, too, if the occasion should arise.

Posted by: Maggie on February 1, 2006 02:42 PM

JFK was a ladies man, biggest whore in Washington.

Posted by: Catfish on February 1, 2006 02:55 PM

Well yeah, Catfish, but the question wasn't who's the most moral, it was who is handsome. Guess it's in the eye of the beholder.
I gotta say I'm astounded by the women here, who I've come to know and consider smart and sensible, thinking George comes off as rugged or as a real cowboy. I watch him talk and see a whining pretender, all hat and no cattle. A spoiled rich kid who has to get his own way or he's taking his ball and going home.
If anybody actually stayed awake through the speech, that look on his face when nobody, not even his own damn party clapped for his domestic spying program says it all for me. Hell, I half expected him to stamp his foot. My mother gets the same look on her face when she doesn't get her own way. Ugh. Makes my skin crawl.
To each her own I guess and good thing, otherwise we'd all be after the same man.

Posted by: Libby on February 1, 2006 03:17 PM

Talk about a "whining pretender", Libby? Talk about yourself - as you have.

I'm not trying to coax traffic to my site, but I did think you might get a chuckle out of this post:

Posted by: Dave S. on February 1, 2006 03:58 PM

Libby, I think I know the moment you're talking about, but I had a completely different take on it. I saw anger and frustration in his eyes at that point (kinda seemed like he didn't expect the camera to come back to him so quickly), and he even acted a little flustered, for a moment. But then he seemed to let it go and got right back on track. That takes strength.

What attracts me is not the ruggedness or the cowboyness. It has nothing to do with looks. It's the willingness and the courage to do what he feels is right in the face of (much) adversity.

9/11 might never had happened if that program had been in place 5 years ago.

Posted by: Jane on February 1, 2006 04:42 PM

Whoa. I thought by now you folks know me well enough to understand anything I say is meant to be taken in the nicest way possible. I certainly don't mean that you can't be smart and sensible and find the man attractive.

As far as seperating the man from the job, so was I keeping them seperate. Although I'm a little confused about how your statement, "I never used to find GWB attractive in the physical sense of the word, but the guy has grown on me through his actions and attitude..." is keeping the two seperate.

I thought this post was supposed to about how perceptions, not politics. Believe me if I based it on my politics, I would have really pissed you off.

I'm a lot older than most of the women here. I've been burned by smooth talkers and I think the guy's a faker. He reminds me of my mother. I don't find the guy manly, sexy or genuine. Am I not allowed to have that opinion, or just not allowed to express it?

Posted by: Libby on February 1, 2006 04:44 PM

No problems here, Libby. And since you are older it makes me think, well maybe I AM being fooled. Wouldn't be the first time and it won't be the last.

Maybe you're right, Acidman just wanted to know if we find him "physically" attractive. If that's the case then my answer is no.

Posted by: Jane on February 1, 2006 04:58 PM

I'd do President Bush. And I wouldn't save my dress or a cigar either.

Posted by: Steph on February 1, 2006 05:16 PM

Thanks Jane for understanding what I meant. I was just surprised and I blurted something out in between running after the tyke. I certainly mean no offense to anyone who holds the opposite opinion. For the record, I feel exactly the same way about Clinton, although he doesn't remind me of my mother.

Posted by: Libby on February 1, 2006 05:24 PM

I think George Bush is incredibly sexy. Good looking, but that's not it. I find it hard to describe. He's like a real MAN, and it's hard for me to put that into words.

Bill Clinton gives me the creeps. Big freakin' time.

Posted by: A Different Kim on February 1, 2006 07:18 PM

It's all good Chablis. I shouldn't post on the fly with the laptop. I'm half blind and the damn thing is so small I can't see what I'm writing. I could have said it better the first time. I should have gone with the bigger screen even though it was heavier. I don't travel with it as much as I thought I would.

Besides it takes a while to used to my manner of speaking. Try to think of me as that eccentric fairy godmother in Disney movies. I mean well, I'm just a little clumsy.

Posted by: Libby on February 1, 2006 07:28 PM

Libby.... Chablis.... get a room.

Posted by: Acidman on February 1, 2006 07:47 PM

Dubya doesn't do a thing for me but his daughters on the other hand....

Posted by: Ralph Gizzip on February 1, 2006 08:58 PM

GWB isn't a traditional 'handsome'...it's more his personality and the way he looks at Laura. Sexy/cute.

Clinton--don't ask me why women go ga-ga for him...but some women don't mind sharing a man, I guess.

Posted by: DixieDarlin' on February 1, 2006 09:18 PM

Libby, I for one do *not* want to see Acidman toe porn! Yi-kes!

Posted by: Desert Cat on February 1, 2006 11:43 PM

7) I wondered, so I'm gonna ask. Ladies: Do you think George Bush is a handsome man?

he's not bad looking by any means, especially for his age. he's certainly better looking that John Horseface Kerry.

Posted by: girl on February 2, 2006 08:57 AM

GWB isn't bad for a guy who's getting up there age-wise. Being in good shape helps (he was a straight-up babe when young).

Bill Clinton has always seems brothel-fresh, so, therefore, has never done anything for me.
