    anyone care to take some guesses?

    1. will the adjective used to describe the state of the union be 'strong'?

    2. how many minutes until bush refers to 9/11?

    3. will bin laden be mentioned at all?

    4. how many times will he blame the democrats for, well, anything?

    Apparently, he'll admit he's addicted to oil. Well, it's the first step, I suppose.

    are you serious?

    because if not, someone somewhere is betting on these things.

    I'd bet on "Freedom", "Sacrifice", "Democracy", "Leadership", to name but a few things Junior knows next to nothing about...

    J/K. Since advance copies of the speech are out, at least portions, Vegas would never take bets on that.

    Skunk, are you staying up for the fun?

    A glass of wine, a joint, and the satisfaction of not living there could make for quite a amusing hour...

    ahhh, right-o. and it'll give the operators of the Applause sign some time to map out their cues.

    at least the Dems' Applause sign operators have the night off.

    Perhaps a little sparkling schadenfreude would go nicely with that?:D

    Nah. He's hardly likely to set the world on fire rhetorically-speaking, though he's doing his damnedest in every other way.

    no need to be malicious - while I'm sure it'll be good for a laugh (or a cry), I am not so sure about the twisting of mustaches and a head-back maniacal laughs being appropriate.

    You looked that up, didn't you? :D
    I don't do head-back maniacal laughs, I do chuckles - in between ranting at the screen. What else can you do?

    3. no

    4. he will blame "Congress" which we all know means Democrats

    I hate to watch that tonight for my history class and then write a 1-2 page letter as if I was George's mom criticizing his speech. My US. History teacher is an idiot. :D But I might be posting here later on, like after the speech, to get some ideas.

    Bonus points if you incorporate the phrase "best part of you ended up a stain on my mattress".

    I think he covered all four. He criticised the "tone" of debate, which means the Democrats are getting uppity.

    And he started off by trying to win back the black people he doesn't care about.
