A Sad Pun That Reflects A Sadder Mess

My take on the State of the Union Address:

My god, he's still talking.

I have a vague memory of learning that, in an age of fast and furious television and Warholian time-frames for fame, public figures who truly want respect and reverence must show the mark of having overcome a visible, fundamental flaw, that they may be mini-martyrs, untouchable, sympathetic, even celebrated for their infirmity. This is especially true of newscasters: think of the botox craze, or Koppel, who appears to have Voice Immodulation Syndrome (c.f. Saturday Night Live), or even Wolf Blitzer's beard.

Ever notice George Bush has no lips? You gotta feel for a guy who can overcome a handicap like that.

As always, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious bonus points if you can correctly identify the song reference in the title. Or, you could just go here.
