So a guy named Drake writes a story about lame ducks and their downers?. There’s a bad chicken joke in there someplace. I said yesterday that if I had to listen to the speech I was gonna dig out a duck call and quack my way thru it. I didn’t like the speech much when Bush gave it and it’s just as phony now. Delivering a truly motivational speech requires that one insert a couple of actual facts/proposals/plans in there someplace-—then hold the door open for the team to hit the field when you’re thru. The Kenyan just headed straight for the showers.
