    Bush's speech, or "The State of Disunity"

    Alternet has this worthwhile read, from Tom Engelhardt:

    You have to wonder: Which sixteen words will it be this time? Will it be National Security Agency spying assurances ("As I stand here right now, I can tell the American people the program's legal, it's designed to protect civil libertiesā€¦"), the Abramoff denials ("I've had my picture taken with a lot of peopleā€¦"), the complete-victory-in-Iraq pronouncements, or more bogus reassurances to the elderly and sickly in our society? It's your guess -- and while you're considering the matter, I have another urge. As I think back on this administration's record, on this country (call me "homeland," Bill Bailey), and on this planet in its edgy state of disunion, I'd like to tote things up for a moment.
