I'm not what you'd call a real "Politics Junkie" (is anyone ever called that?), but I did watch the State of the Union address last night. I'm happy to report that the the state of the Union is strong and that we will totally prevail/conquer/score in the sports analogy against terror. What I'm less than thrilled to report is that both the Vice President and the Speaker of the House were clearly bored throughout the whole address. Nancy Pelosi and Dick Cheney were BOTH thumbing through some sort of book during the President's speech. In fact, almost everyone in attendance had a copy of this mysterious book! I did some digging last night and came up with the following explanation (click to enlarge):

Not surprisingly, 98% of attendants described the State of the Union address as "inspirational" and "heart-warming."

Seriously? Hu-larious. Good observation.

Though, I have read this fine book, and it truly is heart warming...

to be fair they are boring. pep rallys should always include cheerleaders and nachos and the state of the union has neither.

Ohhh I love that book! So funny that they were all reading that instead of listening to the Pres. You sure do have an eye for detail. I also must say that your blog entries are so professional looking. How did you do that whole illustration?
