State of the Union, Part 2

Still trying to form coherent thoughts after being blown away by the level of mendacity, and the cascade of ridiculous policy initatives that accompanied it.

I wasn't listening to much of it, since it was NTN night, and the State of the Union overlapped considerably with the Showdown game, so I missed the part when Democrats stood up and cheered when Bush announced that parts of the Patriot Act were set to expire.

I glanced aside from eating and trivia every so often to see the Closed Captioning. When Bush made a comment about Iraq, what was presumably a reference to the Ba'athist regime came out as "Baptist regime" in the Closed Captioning.

Of course, maybe he was talking about his vision for America.
