(AP) Bush urges Congress to embrace Iraq policy

(AP) Democrats slam Bush war policy

(AP) New Orleans not part of Bush’s speech

And among other things, he wants the renewal of the “Every Child Left Behind” policy, and a new way to let upper middle class families to get health insurance (!). He did notice that it’s getting hotter and we need to not only reduce carbon emissions, but wow, this could be a way to reduce oil dependency. Congratulations to Nancy Pelosi, the first woman Speaker for not bashing him on the head with the gavel.

The State Of Our Union Is Tired As Hell Of Being Lied To…

Well, it’s almost time for our annual “pat ourselves on the back” address. In the meantime, we have the George Bush plan for Looking As If We Didn’t Lose On My Watch in Iraq. Obviously, the thing to do is commit more of our tired and worn out troops, no reflection on their courage or dedication, but not enough to do any good other than to prolong the fighting until 2008 when it will be someone else’s problem. Preferably if it’s a Democrat…this is the first indication that the Repubs intend to lose and dump all the problems they’ve created into the hands of the adults.

Happy Shias soar over mountaintops of Sunnis and rivers of U.S.-owned oil
Hanging Husseins on your cellphones sings a song of satisfaction To The World!

In other news, I wrote several officers at Google concerning the censorship I’ve been undergoing. As my regular readers will remember, in October Google Image Search blocked nearly ALL of my cartoons, except for the ones that showed up on other sites. On Monday it looked as if some action was taken to reinstate me, because 311 cartoons could now be seen on Image Search. Ah, but don’t get your hopes up Greg…less than 24 hours later, we were back to the original banned status. This is nothing short of harassment now. I think the Google officers ordered my reinstatement. The IS team followed their instructions and then *POOF* turned it back while “no one” was looking. Either that, or somehow they overwrote the reinstatement out of sheer incompetence. I’m writing to the board again. Don’t Be Evil?

Well, the State of the Union speech couldn’t have contained ALL lies, now could it? (Cynics!) With apologies to Robert Palmer, here are the verses I didn’t have room for on the cartoon:

You see the signs that you won’t read
You’re driving at a racecar speed
Your engine runs on premium
Another buck for the Saud sheikdom
Your mind is numb, you can’t be saved
Another gallon is all you crave
If there’s some left for you to burn
Here’s a match now take your turn

Your lights are on but you’re not at home
Your will is not your own
Your heart is chilled, your teeth a chatter
Another well and it won’t matter
Whoa! you wonder how you got embroiled, oh yeah
for its embrace you’ll forever toil
You know you’re gonna have to face it

Of course, “One day after President Bush vowed to reduce America’s dependence on Middle East oil by cutting imports from there 75 percent by 2025, his energy secretary and national economic adviser said Wednesday that the president didn’t mean it literally.” (KnightRidder) Administration Backs Off Bush’s Vow to Reduce Mideast Oil Imports. Paul Krugman in (NYTimes) State of Delusion suggests: “Why announce impressive sounding goals when you have no plan to achieve them? The best guess is that the energy “plan” was hastily thrown together to give Mr. Bush something positive to say.” So while His Mendacity WASN’T lying about our addiction, He WAS lying about any desire to do something about it…
