Your Unofficial Home For Duke Football Opinions & Coverage!
MSNBC's Countdown is my pre-SOTU fare. Olbermann is replaying an interview with Hillary Clinton, she described the state of the union as "troubled, anxious." I'm willing to wager that the word "strong" will be in Bush's characterization of the state of our union
Vic, by the way, thanks for starting off my new About blog with a slightly inappropriate comment!
Chris Matthews: "The Vice President, looking somewhat glum" Uhh... Does that really need to be said? I think "The Vice President, breathing" would have been sufficient.
I think one of the Dudes should have been chosen to deliver tonight's rebuttal for the Dems! BTW, my wife just asked who Nancy Pelosi was!
After three, Dirk as 27-8-7. The first triple-double could be moments away!
I appreciate your sentiment Tylwalk, are you going to answer my inquiry?
Watching Nancy and Dick side-by-side will make it all worth it.
Um, Hakeem's cards aren't worth as much because his English isn't as good?
Who is the tall black guy sitting next to Laura Bush?
He's the token black guy for the night. The token asian is sitting next to him.
Wow... All the networks have gone HD for SOTU coverage!!! Welcome to the 21st century!!!
Man I can't stand Condi. The emptiest suit in the White House.
Also I am playing at Full Tilt Poker while blogging on politics... that is 21st Century!
Liveblogging at hardblogger.msnbc.com? We'll eat them alive!
29-8-8 for Dirk
Chris Mathews says Hillary is the overwhelming favorite on TradeSports. Great to see news pundits go straight to the source for predictions!! Sadly, however, TradeSports was wrong as of midday, Election Day, 2004
NBC said Hillary will be sitting behind Obama. Symbolic?
NBC is claiming Pelosi is making history, but no, we have our first all-dude blog tonight. THAT's history!
Will Morgan make it the first LiveBlog with perfect attendance?
I think our history is more historic
If we criticize Bush, will we find ourselves in Guantanamo Bay? I mean, I'm safe, but Vic, are your papers in order?
Nice "God is good" button on that token dark-skinned republican!Welcome Morgan!!
Is there any question that John Boehner (the republican minority leader) fake tans?
Ahh.. Blue tie, striking a concilliary tone early!!
For real, my wife asked at the top of the telecast if Pelosi was Cheney's wife!
Don't let your wife near the baby -- she'll turn her red before she has a chance to be blue!
It's his lesbian daughter. John Edwards will tell her all about it!
I think the SOTU would make a great drinking game... a shot for every standing 'O'!
Dick Cheney, looking so happy that Pelosi is receiving all this recognition
Cheney didn't seem happy clapping for Pelosi.
I don't think any of us could handle that kind of drinking...
If that drinking game were in force, I'd be drunk 5 minutes in... And I have a high tolerance for an Asian!
Yeah, you better congratulate the Democratic majority!
You know Pelosi's just sitting there saying "don't smirk, don't smirk, don't smirk"
"I also intend to create 20,000 new jobs in Iraq"
balancing the federal budget??? hard to do without raising taxes AND fighting an unnecessary war!!!
we'll raise taxes only on mexicans!
Jeez, Hillary and Barack must have heard the same "remain expressionless" advice
Hmmm, I wonder where we could spend less to balance the budget? Can you think of anything that costs a lot of money that could be eliminated?
I remember last year Hillary rolled her eyes. THat won't be happening this time around.
Nice suggestion on earmarks, but that will never get past Congress... How else can Congresspersons get elected?
It's nice to realize this is the first SOTU where it doesn't matter what Bush says -- none of it's going to get passed anyway!!
we're about 10 minutes into the speech, and still not a mention of "iraq", "freedom" or any derivative of "terror"!!!
Neal, go get him for the whole No Child Left Behind thing...
weitao, apparently iraq is coming last -- now that it's no longer a strength, better to change the subject
this whole health care thing is a ruse -- it would allow companies to give worse coverage
Nancy Pelosi does a weird thing with her mouth constantly: probably an after-effect of over-botoxation
33-9-8 for Dirk, but I think he's done for the night.
John Edwards will not clap for that tort reform malarky!!
boo on medical liability reform! that's how i make money!
I think I heard this guest worker thing... Oh yeah, it was in the last TWO SOTUs!!
Then we would have terrorists who work faster if they can be here for just a bit of time. Bush has gone soft on terror!
either you're with us, or you're with the mexicans.
I hate that guy Sam Bodman - a huckster for the energy companies who blatantly lies and cheats on behalf of exxon, bp, etc.
this is his environmental policy -- individuals cut usage by 20%, but corporation can continue along as normal.
Vic, don't you lie and cheat for exxon and bp?
i hate the term "global climate change" it's fricking "warming"!! If we don't confront that fact to begin with, then we're in trouble
I just won that Sit-N-Go I was playing so this is my favorite Bush SOTU so far...
Neal just got the line of the night.
Pelosi will not clap for that (a call for up or down vote on judicial nominees) !!! I love statements that get half the room up! Alright GWB, stop nominating racists and mysoginists to the bench!!!
Obviously, we should take our fight to the enemy... THE RIGHT ENEMY!!! Which is why the Taliban is back in Afghanistan!!
Neal, I have litigated one case against Exxon and Shell; I have yet to represent an oil company.
I think we should get tickets to this next year and do TRUE LiveBlogging...
If Obama's president, Neal can be the token minority sitting next to Obama's wife. Weitao can still be the Asian, and Tylwalk and I can stand outside.
Let's go find those enemies right now. Come on, just the four of us...
Pelosi can't get up fast enough when he talks about fighting terrorists.Grrrr, COndi.
Wow.. I like Condi's death stare... that would scare the crap out of me!!! Did y'all see that?!?!
Hey, is John McCain asleep?!
How about we don't forget that the entire country of Iraq has been turned into a killing field since the U.S. invaded in 2003?
"this is not the fight we entered in IRaq, but the fight we're in."really?
ahh... there it is!!! the first mention to "victory" in Iraq tonight!! I thought he would go through the entire SOTU without it!!
Oh, BTW dudes, my parents have contacted a family friend who will let us have their vacant flat just outside Beijing in 2008...
security to all of people in Baghdad?!?!? How about the rest of the people in Iraq?!?
Beijing! Beijing! Beijing!
I'm still skeptical I can do Beijing, but Vic's announcement gave me chills... Do I dare dream about walking the steps of the Dude's ancestors?
I love it when Dick Cheney stands up to clap, and Pelosi sits there looking all tee'd off..Actually, we didn't vote for failure, that's why the majority of the people didn't vote for you in 2000!!!
Oh? what's this?? Bush is now "consulting" with Congress???Hang on, add to the military? how?!? this better not involve a draft!!!
BELIEVE in Beijing, undude. BELIEVE.
I would hate to be a congressman at these things... You never know when the camera is on you. Can you keep a straight face the entire time?
"a chance to serve... but they better not be gay"
Sweet, I want to be in the non-military military!
Man, now that Tylwalks over 30 and a dad, he would totally get out of a draft. No fair!
I love that Pelosi leapt out of her seat at the mention of Darfur!!! leaving Dick staggering in her wake!!
"to whom much is given, much is required"unless you're wealthy!
The War on AIDS?
I thought Tylwalk was approaching 40
Mutombo is here!
Wave the finger Deke, waive the finger!!!
I think all the dudes will stand for Dikembe!
Give Bush the fingerwag!!!! Wait, does this mean that Deke is a Republican!?!?
I love Deke standing next to the 4-foot Asian !!!
Deke must be a Republican -- BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I heard about this guy!!! His daughter is sound asleep!!! You should at least try to keep her awake!!
If you made millions of dollars like Deke, you'd be a Republican too! And regardless of his political beliefs, I don't think it's a coincidence he got the loudest applause of the night.
So Joel, how many Mavericks were guests of honor at the State of the Union address???
Hey, I can fly RDU-NYC-Beijing (on Air China!) for about $1100 this August. Ho much more do you think they will charge for Olympic time?
YES!! I called it!!! Bush characterized the state of our union as "Strong"!!!
I also declare the state of the Dude Union as "strong!"
I like that he doesn't close his speeches with "God Bless America" anymore... That probably pissed off the muslims
And as long as we're talking about athletes at the SOTU, I will remind you that long before he was accused of choking on this blog, Tom Brady was a guest of honor at the SOTU
Oh what I would give to be in that autograph line to get a John Hancock from 43!!!But no doubt, the highlight of the night is the proof that the state of Dude union is "strong" and Deke at the SOTU!!
I think vic, you need reminding that one dude among us already has W's autograph.
Undude, how did you enjoy being responsible for Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy being in the Super Bowl?? and the Bullet Bob reference??
Alright dudes, this historic blog comes to a close.... good evening all!!
Well, there's no such thing as a bad Bullet Bob reference, that's for sure. But I am just one man; I think my role is a small one in this histpric occassion. I believe that the Patriots defense and Reche Caldwell also played a significant role in Tony Dungy's SB appearance.
