Useless Observations – State of the Union Address

Here are some totally useless observations from President Bush’s State of the Union Address in case you missed it:

  • Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton are both wearing bright red suits.
  • Hillary looks tired.  The red outfit must be keeping her awake.
  • Obama is bored.  Good thing his dark suit blends with the other dark suits.
  • Bush has a white shirt with a blue tie, Cheney has a white shirt with a red tie, Pelosi is wearing . . . purple??? 
  • It looks like Ted Kennedy is asleep!
  • Condi Rice is one of the only people in the room wearing a light colored outfit.
  • Nancy Pelosi must have had poppy seeds on her sandwich, does anyone have a toothpick?
  • The Supreme Court Justices are all nodding their heads in unison.  I wonder if that has ever happened before?
  • Nancy Pelosi blinks at a rate of about 100 blinks per minute, except when she is catching up on her reading.
  • What the heck is Pelosi reading?
  • Ted Kennedy really is sleeping.
  • Do the Supreme Court Justices have to wear their robes everywhere they go in Washington?
  • President Bush looks totally relieved that he never has to give the State of the Union Address again!


  1. Hey, thanks for this review! Much better and more useful and descriptive of the night than the media talking heads. I couldn’t watch since I had to pick up SB from his Swedish class and then get dinner so I appreciate your summary :->>>

  2. I don’t think I’m make a good politician — if I were required to sit through a boring speech I’d probably bring my knitting.
