Let’s see now, where were we?

Wow! Did anyone get the license number of that truck?

That’s about what it has felt like the for the last several days. Man, that was a flu with a wallop. I still show signs of tread marks too. I think Fred the Cat did a more than fair job of describing things around here. Even now my eyes feel they are beginning to melt when I try to read or focus on anything for too long.

I sort of feel like I did as a little kid when I would miss lots of days at school due to some sort of sickness. I’m all out of the loop. I don’t know which chapter we’re studying in history or what page we’re on in arithmetic. I’ve tried to keep up a little with my homework, but I’m still so far behind.

Tomorrow night is the big shindig. The big State of the Union Speech (SOTUS) is tomorrow night and I am so ready to watch and listen. It’ll be so nice to look over the chimp’s shoulder and see for the first time a lady in the chair behind him. And not just any lady either, this lady is a Democrat. We, with our November votes, made history. That alone is pretty damned special.

Speaking of the SOTUS, do you think you can predict some things that will be said during the speech? What color tie will the chimp wear? There’s a fun contest and you could win a prize if your predictions are correct. Dana Hork has this contest for each SOTUS. I enter every time and fail miserably. Entering doesn’t take long at all and it’s fun. You have until 6pm, Tuesday night to enter, but heck, do it now.

Since he's said nothing of substance through all these years, tomorrow will be more of the same.
I'm sure he's going to make an attempt to get his poll numbers up, that he doesn't worry about......

I will suffer through it, only to see Jim Webbs response! ; )

You know Bush will be watching that one himself!

Well, this isn't a's a "leak" to the press: "Tax more generous health benefits, such as those paid by major corporations" (his words).

Gotta keep those guns shooting!!

Good you are getting well for the SOTU speech. Wouldn't want to miss a minute of it. LOL... Litany of Lies.

I am so glad you are on the mend. Don't let the Sotu set you back. Replacing Dennis Hasterts slobbery face with Nancys is a big improvement, for sure. I don't suppose she will make the devil fingers over his head. Nah, probably not.

My prediction...999

PoP, you just got over being sick. You don't need a relapse - please rethink actually watching or listening to the LATSOTUS (Lies about the.....)

Look what watching his LAST speechifying did to you!

Glad you're up and blogging again.

And ties? The only color that would make any sense at all would be BLOOD RED... like the blood dripping from his hands and lips - the blood of American and Iraqi people.

I could care less what the little monkey wears. And I won't be watching the speech.

Glad you are feeling better. If you locate the truck, I'll do in the driver.

That Dana Hork contest is fun. I'm trying to better my position up from last year's 28th, but she's thrown in some real tossups this year.

I feel for you, having been through my own bout with the flu earlier this year I know where you are coming from. Glad to hear you feel better. But as far as the SOTUS is concerned, I think you should take the same approach that the shrub himself takes when it comes to speeches, advice, etc...DON'T LISTEN!

I can't stand to watch him make a speech. It's nauseating, and makes Mr B yell at the TV.

Glad you're coming back around after the flu. A friend of mine recently died from the flu. It's definitely something to be concerned about.

Glad you're getting back on your feet!

I'm torn between watching the monkey speech in a public setting with a bunch of rowdy friends yelling nasty epithets at the creep, or staying home, sipping a fine wine, and listening to "The Fool on the Hill."

Glad to see you almost back on your feet and many thanks to Fred for pitching in.

You may have given me a reason to watch the speech. I usually change the channel when he comes on but I can do as one of my blogging friends does and throw marshmallows.

I wonder if he'll choke on the words Madame Speaker.

Glad you're back....but always enjoy Fred (my cat is Fred too!).

I'm with blueberry on this one....I just can not listen to the idiot....and my mate also yells at tv.

Hmm. How to say anything without opening up a can of vitriol?

Okay, here goes. "Reporter" Paul Krugman opines that Bush has a fundamental indifference to the poor or even the middle class. His health care won't even provide tax incentives to those who are uninsured (unless they're already Filthy Rich). I'd like to see him turned out onto the streets to fend for himself - sort of like "30 Days" but funnier.

AS to the state of Our Tottering Realm, 'tis a whirling world, indeed. Bush will have his oily paws full for the next two years. One can only hope he doesn't burn the planet while waiting out his exit.

Glad to hear that you are feeling better, Pop. I'm looking forward to the Webb rebuttal/smackdown after Chimpy finishes jis collection of garbled sentence fragments.

the suns are at home that night, my TIVO is set for webb's response. if you haven't seen the suns play this season, check them out, they are the most electrifying team in the league. (p.s. i'll be the old hippie in the stands with the "Shawn Marion for President" sign)

I think this SOTUS should be pre-emptively attacked. Are we supposed to wait for a brownish mushroom cloud of bullshit before a response is given?

Seriously, this may be Bush's greatest moment: having been trained, coached and micro-managed by the best handlers available, he must now pretend sincerity at a level never before attempted. Stay tuned...

I'm going to play it safe and simply guess that something incredibly stupid will be said. That much is certain, right?

I was sick a ton as a kid...and you described it perfectly!

Something stupid and highly irrelevent.

Glad to hear you are starting to feel somewhat better. Sometimes the flu takes a while to work itself out. More rest is the best.

We'll watch the address unless our yelling back gets too loud and drowns the jerk out. Then we'll know it's time to turn it off. Looking forward to hearing Webb make the rebuttal.

I didn't know until today that you can catch the flu over the internet.

Can't limkto the contest, but... redtie, stateof the unionis strong, healthcare for the uninsured, taxcuts so 'murcans can keep more of their money, buy more shit, surge- gonna win - losing's not an option, Cheny's ballsweat tastes kinda salty.

Good that you are on the mend. We might head over to our closest Drinking Liberally meeting place manana to observe the scrotal POTUS doing the SOTU macarena. Or not. Have to see.

Chimpy will be sporting a blue tie, mention Iran more than once, mention progress in Iraq but skip over mention of a timeframe.

I believe Bush will use the SOTU to lie about reasons we need to attack Iran. The only necktie I'd like to see the %$@# wear is a columbian one.

I bet the during the SOTU he will invoke God, talk about all the folks he "listened too," remind us all of 9/11, get a little teary-eyed about the brave men and women in the military, blather about his bipartisan effort to make DNA testing private, sprinkle this with the economy and Iran, pepper it with threats to Iran and Syria, end with a bunch of God Blesses and walk off looking befuddled, beaten and stupid.

I don't even plan on watching it. I don't want to hear him lie to me and than tell me after he finishes lying he is going to do what he wants. Bush is a self rightious arrogant man. That is one bad combonation.

So sorry to hear you've been sick while I was away. Good wishes coming your way...and I personally will be glued to the TV because I want to watch him squirm when he tells his lies.
