SOTU at the Wundruns

It took an awful lot to get through it.

I perked up when he started talking about exploring alternative energy sources. I did tequila shots when he mentioned that those sources are coal gasification and nuclear energy.

A whole 'nother year. Sigh.

Also: Right after the speech, NBC did an unpaid 5 minute advertorial with Mitt Romney. What gives? Romney promised us that he would stay the course by being the agent of change. His hair looked Great! Then, following a fantastic rebuttal by Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius (read it here) the same favor was done for Obama and Clinton. Where was Edwards?

I missed it, but I would have been doing tequila shots right there with you.

Me too, and I don't even like tequila shots.

Phew! Thanks for slogging through that! I just couldn't do it.

I see what the kids had, so tell us what did you and Mr. Wundrun drink?

(I love Penfolds wine.)

Sorry Jess, John Edwards was busy speaking Truth to Power. And Power ain't gonna broadcast it.

Glad you had the "resources" to get through it. I semi-listened via a "live" stream (slightly delayed) on the 'puterbox, but my ears got clogged with the bullshit, so I missed a lot.

I just drank. Why listen or watch was my philosophy?

I think I would have had some better drinking opportunities if I had been at Casa de Wundrun however!

I think Edwards is gone. Really sad. Not just because I like him, but because it speaks volumes about how politics and power work in our country.
