8:06–Chris Matthews kisses Republican ass. Even calls Rice one of the most popular people in the world.

8:08–Is that Keenan from Saturday Night Live standing next to Laura Bush?
8:11–Why does our president always look like he’s afraid that someone is going to heckle him? Still, it’s a good haircut. Is anyone else reminded of Mike Logan with all these tiny flags on lapels? Okay, just the Law & Order fans, I guess.
8:13–Is the president missing his top teeth?
8:15–The first 9/11 reference. If you had 8:15 in the pool, you win.
8:16–“We will act boldly in freedom’s cause” by tapping your phone and monitoring and arresting vegans.
8:17–Burma is looking at itself all “What, when did we get on the bad guy list?”
8:18–“Allowing the violent to inherit the earth.” Who had 8:18 in the “First Jesus reference” pool?
8:20–We’re not for isolationism? Surprise, conservatives!
8:23–Short George Bush–“Politicians suck. But I’ll ask your advice, if you’re not too critical of me.”
8:25–“We must stand behind our military” until they get home, then we must abandoned them. Argh.
8:27–MSNBC hopes the dead soldier’s family will cry. Despite zooming in, no tears.

8:34–He just admitted he’s going to use the Patriot Act in the “war” on drugs.
8:35–Now he explains why he gets to tap phones without a warrant. See “8:34” if you can’t understand why you might ought to be worried about this, pot smoking hippies.
8:37–I can’t hear the President over the rantings of the Butcher.
8:38–Talk of immigrants causes Kleinheider to howl so loud that I hear him clear up here.
8:42–Senator Clinton could kill with that withering glare.
8:43–For the first time in years, the Democrats show signs of life and SNARK!
8:45–The Butcher asks if the President is high.
8:46–Is that Kleinheider again screaming at the mention of a guest-worker program?
8:47–Again with the medical liability reform. I remember that from last year.
8:48–“America is addicted to oil.” Coal. We’re going to invest in coal. Perhaps no one told the president that mining is still deadly.

8:52–More math and science? Intelligent design, too, or not?
8:55–The President comes out against gay marriage.
8:57–Well, he was for math and science. Now he wants to limit science.
8:59–Laura Bush is now in charge of some initiative to love children. What happened to her initiative to love gang members? Did that work and now she’s expanding out? Or it failed and so she’s aiming for something easier?
9:01–Bush is going to give money to churches to help with the fight against AIDS, because churches are so well-known for their great love of people with AIDS and their caring outreach to communities ravaged by AIDS.
9:03–“May God Bless America.” See how he gets our hopes up by insinuating that someone more powerful than him is in charge?
