State of the Union Address

An apt summary, and nicely brief, of all of Pres. Obama's SOTUs to date.

He notes that it has been fun, and that the women (at least) in the audience should be very happy.  When it turns out that even this limited claim is not true, and the audience screams, the President makes gestures with his hand that are out of time with his words (teleprompter problem, perhaps?).

Then Joe Biden (wearing a fake beard, I think; it's hard to tell) howls in glee.

And then some Republican shouts "You lie!" or something like that.

And the President goes into attack mode, saying "You won't be here much longer..."

Finishing with the immortal words, "No one enjoys seeing a man dance."  How very insightful.

With thanks to Ed Wood for the score, and to M.K. for a terrific assist in finding this gem.

Ed Wood described Orgy Of The Dead as "ninety minutes of erotic dancing in a graveyard", and it's true. Seen it three times at least. And it still beats every SOTU ever.

Mark Steyn had a great line about BO's SOTU addresses, as an aside in a piece on the murder of Obama's old high school marijuana supplier. The dealer had been killed by his roommate:
"His lover Andrew Devere, a male prostitute, gave police a laundry list of reasons for the killing, including that Boyer, a surfer and unemployed chef, constantly put him down, made him beg for drugs and had a habit of breaking wind in his face."
To which Steyn adds:
Obama's speechwriters seem to have borrowed that last one for their general approach to the State of the Union.
