Sorry this is so late, but I watched the State of the Onion speech last night and fell asleep–the only thing I could remember was the right side of the aisle bouncing up and down like a bunch of jack in the boxes for absolutely no discernable reasons and the sly smile on the face of Bush as he pressed the old lies about attacking a country that posed a threat upon us because of their weapons (that have never been found). In the meantime, Cindy Sheehan was arrested for wearing an anti-war T-shirt to the festivities…initial reports claimed she’d tried to “unfurl a banner” like this from CNN “Sheehan arrested in House chamber WASHINGTON (CNN) — Peace activist Cindy Sheehan was arrested Tuesday in the House chamber after she unfurled an anti-war banner before President Bush’s State of the Union address. ” But it seems like that was hype from white house staffers. A later report on CNN stated: “An early report from a senior House official indicated that Sheehan was arrested for unfurling an anti-war banner, but that was later found not to be the case.” Now all references to the banner have been eliminated, although Sheehan is still decribed in these words: “Sheehan has pestered the Bush administration since August, when she and hundreds of fellow protesters began demanding an audience with the president and camping outside his ranch in Crawford, Texas.”(CNN)Sheehan arrested in House gallery How’s THAT for ubiased reporting? :-) For a summary(WashPost) Bush Warns Against Shrinking Global Role. Some saber-rattling at Iran and Syria was also indulged in but that seems to be passing over everyone’s heads right now…
