SOTU: This means war 

As usual, as soon as Bush gets you down on the ground, he starts kicking harder. People nail him on the WMD-like "Social Security" bankruptcy? Fine. He repeats it twice.

I knew this was coming the minute I heard "frivolous asbestos lawsuits."

1. Comes out in favor of Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment. ("Because marriage is a sacred institution and the foundation of society, it should not be re-defined by activist judges." Talk about frivolous; I really like the idea of judges getting involved in defining what's sacred, don't you?)

2. 2/3 of the payroll tax to Alpo Accounts ("four [of the six] percentage points of their payroll taxes")

3. Tax cuts for the super-rich in place permanently ("makes tax relief [cough]

4. Every judge to be a winger replicant (and if "every judicial nominee deserves an up-or-down vote" that means the nuclear option to stop the Democratic filibuster)

5. No exit strategy from Iraq: "We are in Iraq to achieve a result: A country that is democratic, representative of all its people, at peace with its neighbors, and able to defend itself. And when that result is achieved, our men and women serving in Iraq will return home with the honor they have earned." So, how many years to make that happen?

Of course, it's been war for some time. Eh?
