To me, since it was the same old speech from every other year (get off oil dependence while I fete the Saudis, we need to let more illegal aliens become citizens, etc.)–but for his addition, this year, of Hezbollah being a bad group (which he doesn’t really believe or his foreign policy over the last 6 years would be vastly different)–the only part worthy of attention was the guests in the gallery that he recognized.
To me, the best part was Subway Superman Wesley Autrey hugging fellow American hero, Silver Star recipient, and future action figure Sgt. Tommy Reiman. Wish I had a picture to post of their hug. But strangely, can’t find one. Why not? (The Baby Einstein lady was a waste of time and not heroic. But in the day of Oprah nation, you gotta do something to show women voters you care about their feelings.)
**** UPDATE: Bill Warner sends this photo, which is not the one I had in mind, but the closest we can find. Sgt. Tommy Reiman is the man in the Army uniform to the right of Mrs. Cheney (who is in a white suit).
