I simply refuse... by d.- on 2003-01-28 15:16:25

to watch "The State of the Union Address" this evening!! Bush is a mediawhore as far as THAT goes... he's been on TV EVERY day, EVERY hour on-the-hour since 9/11. Our governmental spin doctors have had their work cut out for them to be sure. I sure as hell don't believe everything I read, see or hear. I'm renting a video and hoping he doesn't pre-empt any of my favorite TV shows afterwards (dammit!)

  Well, in the spirit of unity and fatigue I also did not watch the State of The Union address. Anything good on the video? I was pseudo-reading the Bible instead.

  NOT to mention the several hours afterward of every Rep. and Dem. 'suit' giving their spin, opinion and 'analysis' of the speech. Gah. Turns out I had already seen the video I'd rented (and was I mad!) -- which was: "Lovely and Amazing". Should I be calling you Father Kid?

  Please don't call me Father Kid. Its only an 'oxy' from the truth. And you were right about the singing, dancing, slaying and flaying all action all graphic all VT reviews of his speech I had to dodge nimbly all afternoon and evening today.

I was just about to recommend a film, then I remembered the 100 answer strong film thread of the last few weeks. I can't see the Bush-burden lifting either.

  Bush is the ultimate narcissist! -- and we are all trapped in his mirror, meaning, he only sees himself/his own reflection everywhere he looks. This is NOT a good thing... I WANT OUT OF THE MIRROR!!!

  I was looking for this, actually. I've had a Language unit this term entirely based upon this 'State Of The Union' address. So as well as I avoided it, it came through to haunt me in the end. (NB, the main point of this SotU thing was worthless. Well, not worthless, but of negligible value)
