We Must Be Getting To The End Because The Fat Ladies Are Singing

Now to the CNN focus group, where the official CNN focus group hottie talks to a bunch of ordinary Americans who just happen to be in that television studio.

Update 10:59 p.m. -- I find it ironic that the CNN State of the Union coverage is brought to me by Koons Nissan and Toyota.

Update 11:01 p.m. -- Anderson Cooper oddly unexcited by the Don't Ask, Don't Tell announcement.

Update 11:02 p.m. -- CNN's Candy Crowley: "He is a president who often leaves things open to interpretation." Well put, Candy.

Update 11:07 p.m.
-- I would so do Soledad O'Brien.

Update 11:09 p.m. -- Obama advisor David Axelrod: soul of an accountant in the body of a high school guidance counselor with the mind of a Washington Bureaucrat.

Update 11:12 p.m.
-- Oil Billionaire T. Boone Pickens appears in an ad to get Americans to move forward on energy, i.e., give him federal subsidies for his windfarms. Oh, come on. You're a rich asshole. Fund it yourself if it is such a great fucking idea.

Update 11:15 p.m.
-- Mary Matlin and James Carville are not real. They are cartoons. He sounds like Foghorn Leghorn and looks the result of some unholy human/lizard interbreeding. And if his wife gets one more face-lift, she'll have a beard.

Update 11:23 p.m. -- Anderson Cooper just happens to be wearing a t-shirt that shows off his biceps. Funny how these things happen.

Update 11:26 p.m.
-- Gupta notes that the president referred to health insurance reform not health care reform. Hmmm ...

Update 11:32 p.m. -- National Review's Ramesh Ponnuru on why insurance reform is next to impossible.

FINAL THOUGHTS -- Aside from the Don't Ask, Don't Tell stuff, this was a boring rehash of things Obama has said several times before. In two weeks nobody will even remember this speech. Me, I'm going to bed ...
