Quick, in 25 words or less, summarize the experience thus far.
Best summary wins an imaginary prize that I'll make up as soon as I pick the winner.

19. As soon as I saw the Thread, I knew the answer...
Bush Lied! LOL! for the first 10 min. of the speech, I was in the bar on the corner...(let's just say.. I'm a regular..) and I started yelling at the TV. I had the remote (like I said, I'm a regular... ) and a couple of kids walked in. He's asking the bartender to turn it up, I'm turning it up... I had to leave before I started a riot!! oh yea, I tried the drinking game... don't do it if the other people in the bar don't know the rules... and 3 shots in 10 min? I had 'em box up my fish n chips, I came home just in time to log onto DU while the 3rd shot hits my brain... the shrub is turning me into a drunk!

12. The elite and power hungry may be in control for good....
They have used our wonderful volunteer Army and the media to sell the war on false premises.

They have bankrupted the country...yet they blame financial problems on social security...the most solvent program of US history.

They have peppered the American public to accept lies...deep lies....and accept less and less in terms of benefits, jobs, and wages...as they take more and more for themselves.

It is....as we are witnessing this day, the State of the Union Address, Feb 2005, the end of our democracy as we know it.

27. I didn't watch a lick of it
Edited on Wed Feb-02-05 10:53 PM by Generator
But from the purple fingers (that symbolize everything is just dandy in Iraq now that a miniorty of the population voted) to Bush daddy hugging the poor woman whose son gave his life for the Iraqi people, or to find the WMD that didn't exist or to stop the next 9/11 (Saddam in prison is going to stop the next terrorist from getting on a plane and ramming into your downtown landmark-okay it doesn't make any sense but it sounds..plausible???) or to.. whatever the hell we are doing in Iraq is..I'm sure that hug will make it all okay.

It's all hollow, craven, propagandist images that signify nothing relating to the truth or the state of this country (remember Bush is President of America-not Iraq) but ideology that is failed because all it is ideas-such as social security being in a crisis, that have nothing to do with reality.

There's no there there.

I refuse to watch reality TV, it's way too scripted.

(Edited for Propaganda-the one word that sums it all up.)

33. Freedom came out swinging and had Liberty on the ropes in the early rounds
Edited on Wed Feb-02-05 11:27 PM by Vinnie From Indy
with a barrage of powerful punches. Liberty countered by using it's awesome speed and ringmanship to avoid being caught against the ropes. Liberty seemed to rally in the middle rounds by landing several great shots to Freedom's head. In the end, however, Liberty was no match for Freedoms size and power. Liberty refused to come out of the corner in round eight and Freedom retained the belt in a TKO.

a lot of people who ARE following him (the millions who aren't rich) are gonna be fucked too.... they'll be blissful about it though, and blame the gays and those "other" people who don't believe. Bush will never be blamed by those people -- they are way too easily led and full of nationalistic pride to EVER blame the chimp, and therefore take the blame themselves.

Nick and Jessica's marriage is somewhat dysfunctional, but they're cute. Ashlee had a really good excuse for lip synching on SNL. Really, she had a doctor and everything.

59. Body Parts aren't going to be sold??!!
I heard that he said something about having Congress help him make sure we didn't sell body parts from human embryos or something??

Is he worried scientists will create baby farms for harvesting of human organs? Is this a problem I am unaware of? My hubby is a scientist. This is insulting to scientists. But oh yea, I forgot. Right wingers believe scientists are Godless devil worshippers.

60. A steadfast continued march towards further division.
Edited on Thu Feb-03-05 11:19 AM by Mugsy
Despite a questionable 2000 election that evenly divided the nation, followed by a 2004 election that has polarized the nation evenmore, George "uniter not a divider" Bush spoke of cooperation but only pushed the same unpalitable divisive proposals that demand a one-party system to pass.

Okay, that's not 25 words, but what's the point when anything you could say in so few words could have been said w/o even watching the Address.

61. In exactly 25 words:

The American people get screwed, Bushco contributors get richer, and the neocons agenda of world domination and oil conquest rolls onward to Iran and beyond.

62. I'm not a poet, but, I think I got the gist.
An episode of West Wing, Ashcroft looks tremulous
Confident and strong, weary hyperbole tenuous
Hugs, lies, and assertions for which boos are outrageous
Unspoken missle for Mars, securely heads for Uranus.

(You can't count the an's of's for's and such.)

67. 25 words... or more
My fellow Republicans. Everything good with you? I'm feeling pretty good. Had that war (APPLAUSE)... had a great vote there (APPLAUSE). i got a woman up there who voted. she's pretty happy, so i don't know why some of you are so grumpy bout this whole war thingie. I'll exploit her for personal gain later.

let me explain to you how Social Security works. You put money in, you get it when you retire. Problem is, if you're under 55, you won't get it... that's my guarantee. It's going bankrupt. (APPLAUSE) Let me explain to you my plan to take your money and put it in a private account and then watch how my friends get rich from the money you invest in them... money you won't get back. or maybe you'll get 10-20% so i don't look that evil. Let me say a quick shout out to the folks on the other side of the aisle, cause i think they're saying hello. Everythings on the table democrats. Okay, that should shut them up. (APPLAUSE) Ownership Society.

Syria is probably coming up with ways to destroy 'Merica now, so's Iran. We got democracy everywhere else, why not there? Afghanistan is looking pretty good to me, Iraq's coming along just nicely. Freedom is never looking so good. (APPLAUSE)

Marriage must be protected from activist judges that are so active one day one of them will outlaw marriage. then where would we be? with the queers. I don't want that, do you? (APPLAUSE) So we must ban lawyers from receiving money and gays from receiving marriage! (BIG APPLAUSE)

'Merica is a place where we do not discriminate against other people like me, good folks as we in Texas would call me. Everyone should be included. Did i talk about gays yet? How they're not included? Yeah? Good. Criminals are included, we're gonna help them, so long as they're not.. you know.

I made some jobs and I planted some seeds of democracy. Unfortunately, when you plant seeds, you got to tear up the earth. You can't plant a seed on top. Sometimes I use people as my shovel. Let me tell you about one of my shovels. He died protecting our freedoms. Let's bring out his parents! You've just won a new car! (APPLAUSE)

Okay, that just about does it from here. love those purple fingers!

hmm, I was going to say something about the environment, energy conservation, veteran & death benefits, tsunami relief, genocide in africa, and a whole list of other things... maybe next term. I shoulda said some more about education, and maybe actually talked details with you folks, but that's what the closed door meetings are for, right? right? (APPLAUSE)

okay then, good night blah blah, may god continue to bless this mess.
(APPLAUSE)

75. what was said...and what wasn't...
Democracies everywhere! (applause)
Syria and Iran, watch out! (applause)
Social Security privatization! (Dems: whoa Nellie! Pugs: Wild applause!)
Protect marriage and "culture of life!" (applause)
War heroes and their sacrifice! (cue hugging of alleged Iraqi human rights protester and mother of slain soldier)
Quote dead Democratic president! (obligatory God Bless America ending)

What's also interesting is what wasn't said:

Osama who?
Torture, what torture?
Poverty?
Crisis in Sudan?
Suffering from the tsunami?

Not a peep about any of these.

79. Both 25 worded and less than 25 worded versions...
25 worded version: My Fellow Americans, when you voted for me, you had your eyes closed. Keep closing them for four more years --everything is fine and dandy.

25 or less: http://www.tompaine.com/articles/the_delusional_is_no_l...

Everything everyone else said is on par, though I'm surprised environment wasn't mentioned as much (on the list of what bush is raping, pillaging, and putting the vikings to shame with). I'm wondering which comes first, the US desert or the bankrupcy of the US, the end of democracy in the US, or the second US civil war...

92. I didn't watch it either but I know it was a bunch of lies
I forgot it was on--I thought it was tonight. I was busy, though, and didn't even have to try to avoid it. So I can just keep pretending I live in an alternate reality where * is still mismanaging the Texas Rangers (which was annoying but didn't get anyone killed), Al Gore just started his second term, and all is well in the world.

I don't think * can actually tell the truth about anything. <shudder> He has to be controlled by aliens or something.

99. With apologies to Mel Brooks...
From the escaping from the senate cloakroom scene in "History of the World Part One", and in the spirit of a fellow poster to this thread:

"Heyyyyy, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, oohhhh, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, ahhh, bullshit, bullshit..."

Or, alternatively (from the same movie, just prior):

Senator: "Do we continue to build palace after palace for the rich? Or do we aspire to a more noble purpose, and build decent housing for the poor?"

The Senate, in unison: "FUCK THE POOR!"

Senator: "Good!"

102. My turn...
"I rise, O fair assemblage! Andcommincio. Now then, after this introit excordium, my galaxy girls, quiproquo of directions to henservants I was asking his advice..."


(Wednesday was also James Joyce's birthday, and sweetie and I watched the SOTU with a copy of Finnegan's Wake. Whenever President UaRuamhaighaudlug said anything particularly bizzarre, one of us would read a random passage from the book. It made about as much sense as whatever President Holihowlsballs was saying! And, along with the intoxicants made for a slightly less painful experience. It was also a good way to kill the time during the standing ovations.

I picked the 25 words above for you at random, and I think they are actually quite fitting!)
