the shadow state of the union

check out this excellent interactive feature that the new york times popped up online right after the prez concluded his state of the union address. impressive. what's most amazing is not the fact that they got this together and published it so fast -- no, they knew the speech was coming and had time to prep it.

what's most amazing is that bush apparently said "ass" 7 times in 2005 ... 4 times tonight.

what fun words can you find?

I don't know what do you for a living, but whatever it is you should be running it. EXCELLENT observation.

He's only said Party twice in all the speeches. And never matched with "on, Dude!"

Poo is poor, in context, and ass is variously assert, association, assume, assassins, etc. ( much for your excellence, big guy.) Meanwhile, he hasn't mentioned Jesus even once.

well, he hasn't said roll since 2002, he has never said apologize, sorry, screwed up,or kiss my ass, but he did say fat 5 times.

Again, while I'm sure he's said the word fat in the last 5 years, he hasn't said it in the state of the union address. Scroll folks, scroll. In context, fat is father a number of times, and once, it's fate.

Don't listen to sisco, he's just mad because "Thong Song" didn't have the staying power of Groove Armada's "I see you baby (shakin that ass)" which, coincidentally, the president said once in 2005.

I find it interesting that he has said "ass" more times than "education" (once in 2005, twice in 2006, not at all in 2007). Kind of sums up the president, really.
