This is hilarious. George Bush, in what likely will be his final and most humiliating State of the Union Address tonight, will address... earmarks. That's right, baby. The Middle East is still on fire, the economy is in meltdown mode, health care is still in crisis, and all that the worst President in our nation's history has to show for it is... a vow to veto earmarks.
(At least it's a step-up from his fear-mongering about Animal-Human Hybrids.)
