Many have already pointed out the very good news that this was the last State of the Union address for George W. Bush. One point I haven't heard mentioned -- one that I think deserves both trumpeting -- is that this was the last State of the Union address for the 30 Republican Congressmen and Senators who have already announced that they would be retiring (either at the end of this cycle or during this session of Congress), the handful more who have yet to announce their retirement but likely will in the coming days or weeks, and the dozens more who will likely find themselves out of a job following the November 4 elections.
We may be an awfully long time away from Thanksgiving, but we have an awful lot to be thankful for today. But let's sprint, not saunter, to election day.
MyDD Blog Talk Radio returns again tonight as co-hosts Adam Conner and Aaron Banks will be joining me tonight to talk about tonight's State of the Union address, George W. Bush's last -- and the last of a whole lot of Republican members of Conress.
The call-in number for the show is (646) 652-2585. You can also chime in via AIM to "MyDDdotCOM". If you do not use AIM, you can send an email under the subject line "MyDD Blog Talk Radio" to jonathan-at-mydd-dot-com. If you prefer, you can also leave your question or comment in this thread.
We're going to have a great program tonight, so make sure to listen in and, if the mood strikes you right, give us a jingle.
