“I can’t say that I have. They’re not that well publicized. Actually, this is the first time I’ve heard anyone talking about it.”

“Yes I have, last year’s and others. I’m always interested in what they have to say.”

“No, never. I’ve seen the State of the Union before, but never the State of the State. I know it’s bad, but I tend to pay more attention to the bigger political events.”

Topeka Cap-Journal says Sebelius to respond for dems to Bush's state of the union address.

I once listened to part of Detroit's state of the city address, and then I listened to analysts rip it apart. The latter was far better than the former.

Yeah, I got the State of the State thing but refuse to believe that two of the four people randomly picked have listened to the Governor issue the address. It is not that well covered and one would have to make an effort to listen to it as opposed to the State of Union which is on nearly every TV channel.

R_I, Alf, the oil man that would have made a good president and it is just fun to say his name. Alf would not be a happy camper today. Nancy dropped the ball. Oil well!

Have you ever listened to the State of the State address? Um... Wouldn't that be "Kansas"?~)

Are you kidding?

Do these people understand you are talking about the State governor and not the President?

Read about the proproganda in the paper and deal with there.

I thought the part about turning Strong Hall over to Mizzou for use as a commuter campus/outreach center was a bit weird, but otherwise she managed to keep up the illusion that she actually cares about progressive issues.

And, I think the idea about the "boom chicka wow wow" track is a winner.

Adding a "boom chicka wow wow" track always helps.

A few times.

Though unrelated to the State of the State Address, consider these words spoken by a Kansas Governor...

The President spoke truly when he boasted... 'We have built up new instruments of public power.' He spoke truly when he said these instruments could provide 'shackles for the liberties of the people . . . and . . . enslavement for the public.' These powers were granted with the understanding that they were only temporary. But after the powers had been obtained, and after the emergency was clearly over, we were told that another emergency would be created if the power was given up. In other words, the concentration of power in the hands of the President was not a question of temporary emergency. It was a question of permanent national policy.

It seems odd they would schedule the state of the state address during a KU basketball game. I have a hunch I know what most people in the state were tuned into last night.

No, but occasionally I have checked in to see what condition my condition was in.
