Reality Based Nation has some good coverage of the SOTU speech that just concluded.

Linky. They've got a bunch of interesting articles and some linkage to the various instapolls. Pay them a visit.

Personally I Love the State of the Union. It’s the only time when you can hear someone talk for an hour, and say nothing. Unless of course you count every speech by every politician that was ever born. I watched some of Dubya’s feel good countrywide group hug. Cynical sure. I generalize. SOTUs are generally vacuous and filled with hot air aren't they? I mean It is the ultimate promise-them-everything-but-no-specifics-please sort of dealio.

All I can say is oye!
