State of the State of the Union

STATE OF THE STATE OF THE UNION….As we prepare ourselves for George Bush’s sixth fifth State of the Union address, here’s your chart of the day, courtesy of the Pew Research Center.

Bottom line: if you think this year’s speech is likely to be a bore, you’re not alone. Apparently hearing Bush recite the same old stuff year after year is starting to lose its appeal.

I know that it’s lost its appeal for me. I’ll liveblog it tomorrow like I do every year, but I’m not sure my heart is going to be in it. I’ll try to keep my yawning under control and hope that someone drops a glass of water on Cheney’s head or something just to liven things up.
