State of the Union?
You know what would be cool?
Tonight is Bush's 'State of the Union' speech, and one of the things I would truly love to see, and it would do a lot to restore my faith in our government, is if everyone just got up and walked out when Bush starts speaking. After all, he has said he doesn't care about the opinions of the House, the Senate and the American people, so why should we care about anything he may have to say? I personally think it would send that wannabe dictator a message he really needs to hear. And, that message is that we the people have a voice, and it can and should be heard.
Unfortunately, I have to watch Bush stutter and stammer his way through the web of irrelevant (and sometimes comical) posturing since I have to do a write up on this speech. It's one of the more serious writing things I do when I'm not scribbling here. So, I'll be sitting with my little note pad keeping track of, among other things, his use of 9-11 and how he clumsily tries to tie it together with the War in Iraq as though he were cramming a large, square peg into a small, round illogical hole.
Anyway, I know it'll never happen, but how great would it be to see Bush take the podium, only to have his entire audience simply walk away?
Oh well... I know it would probably lead to more problems than solutions to this nation's troubles and fears, but still, I can dream, can't I?
