I can almost guarantee that the Con- tents of this address will bear no resemblance to the actual state of our nation. If you've seen one speech by G.W., you've seen them all, and I expect nothing different from him" Tuesday evening. He will read slowly from a teleprompter. He will squint to simu- , late resolve, and he will tilt his head to invite agreement. He will slap many layers of rose-colored paint over the blackness of our country's present reality. And, of course, he will lie. He will believe some of his own lies. Then he will smirk and leave the podium feel- ing very proud of himself - mostly for not messing up too many of the bigger words put in front of him. But what if President Bush we/e suddenly visited by some spirit which entered his body and elicited nothing but truth from the man? Just imagine... "Howdy! Man, get that electronic roll of toilet paper outta my face and just let me talk. First things first. I want to start with four little words. Shut up about the flight suit. It looked good. It felt good. It was fun. And that's all that matters. Mission ac- complished. • "Obviously, I'm here to tell you the state of the union, and all I can say is, it sucks plastic lemons, people. No fooling. There's been some big- time screw-ups in the last year, but I gotta say I'm not as sorry about the screw-ups as I am about how they might affect my campaign. So let's just say, 'My bad, I'il try todo bet- ter,' and move on. "Actually, let's not say that. Be- cause you know what? I don't care. I' ve been doing whatever I want since the Supreme Court appointed me to this position back in .2000, and I don't see any reason to stop now. "Soon as I came in office, I said I right.

But that's bull. I think we all know that. Don't make me go into it. Same thing with the weapons of mass destruction. I' ve heard enough about that crap. Just don't go there. "As you know, the projected $2.7 trillion surplus we started with when I took over has sort of turned into a right-this-minute deficit. I used to be worried about it, until Cheney pointed out something I never knew. He said, 'Reagan proved that deficits don't foot. They already fought their wars, and we paid them then. Ingrates! "Same with the old folks whining about the Medicare bill. They'll be dead soon, but the stockholders in those drug companies who'll make a bundle from last year's legislation need to have some hope of steady dividend checks for the next forty, fifty years.
