Another Speech, Another Service (Lip Service That Is)

Alright, so I settle in to watch “National Lampoons Christmas Vacation” with my wife. We are set, have some warm apple pie with Cool-Wip ready, kids are in bed, things seem great.

Then suddenly “da da da-da…. this is a special report, a message from the President of the United States../"

My gut reaction: “Are you serious?”

Lets all be honest: his last speech covered just as much as this one. This has less to do with Iraq, and much more to do with trying to maintain focus off of the Presidential authorizations for unreasonable search and seizure (aka FBI wiretaps). Thankfully the President has admitted to this as forward as possible (avoiding any more liberal “SCANDAL!” cries), but really… do you need to give everyone another “pep-talk” about Iraq, three days after your last one, in a feeble attempt to shift the attention off of this very disturbing revelation?

Just one request, from a humble citizen, and one of your “supporters” (I did vote for you). Don’t interrupt prime time TV (which I don’t get to watch enough of anyway) to feed me some of your “wag the dog” politics. Your true base will still be spooked by your blatant infringement on personal freedoms, regardless of how much you wave the “War on Terra” flag.

Sorry, just keeping it real.
