    You know, Bush hasn't been pres in over a month. Can you find a new topic or is your viewpoint that limited, and your life that pitiful?

    While you never mentioned Bush ad hominem, his memory certainly was invoked.

    And as for the "better spent" comment, quality is more important than quality. Just sayin'.

    Please stop using phrases that you don't understand.

    Not just you, WHN, but everyone tempted to use any term they just discovered, think sounds neat, believes will impress others, etc....just don't. You appear very ignorant and foolish to those of us who actually do understand its meaning.



    PS: Having read the Wikipedia entry for a phrase doesn't qualify as understanding.

    Astounding isn't it!?!?! Ah well, whatever, it was a good speech, although I think near the end he was getting really annoyed at the repetitive standing ovations that kept interrupting him...

    Seriously, at one point his facial expression looked like he was going to turn around, cover the mic, and say "Pelosi, could you PLEASE wait until I'm done with the topic before you start a standing ovation?"

    half way through the speech I paused the TIVO to reflect and appreciate that I had not heard the words "fear" or "terrorism" once.
