Moogie's Post-Mortem of the State of the Unionized Extravaganza

Just a couple of observations about the State of the Unionized speech last night --

(1) Apparently no one told Michelle that the SOTU speech is a business-attire event, not a cocktail-attire event. Purple satin? Really?

(2) One positive: unlike during last year's address to Congress, this year Pelosi appeared to be faking all her jump-up-and-down O-rgasms. Do you suppose he's man enough to deal with that?

(3) I have to agree with Andy: seeing one's Secretary of Homeland Defense -- the guardian of our security -- take a little nap during her boss's big appearance is more than a little disquieting.

(4) The Young President v. The Supreme Court. STOP! in the name of love! Think it oh-oh-ver!

(5) Using the phrases, "jobs," "clean energy," and "working families" for trigger-words in the State of the Unionized Speech Drinking Game makes for a tipsy citizen-viewer.

(6) One hour, 25 minutes, 31 seconds? See: U.S. Constitution, Amendment 8. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

(7) Conspicuously absent: Foreign policy? What Foreign Policy?


  1. I like that you actually mentioned something about Michelle. Bless her heart...her wardrobe team must think they're a bunch of comedians!!

    I know that you used to loyally follow Bless Our Hearts before we took a hiatus. Just wanted to let you know that there is a new post about last night's speech up. You should check it out!


  2. Well said, Moogie. Well said.

    veriword: froutou. FLOTUS' gown?

  3. Moogie,

    Bwahahahahahahahaha!!! The 8th Amendment line just fogged up my monitor with Diet Coke (and maybe something else in the mix).

    I did not watch the speech, as I had better things to do. But, I did catch some clips of it this evening. In one 30 second clip, I swear, Nancy Pelosi (or as I call her, NannyP) blinked 45 times...I swear, I counted them.

    It was so distracting that I missed what the savior was saying. NannyP really "ruined the moment" for me. I'm sure it's not the first time she's done that (if you know what I mean).

    8th Amendment...nyuk...

    btw: Thanks for the link Moogie. Truth is, I probably was further gone than Janet when they shot that picture of her. Maybe she had too much corn for dinner (like I did) before the speech. (wink)
