Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States!
Now Everyone claps.
Everyone except Dick Cheney, who is clearly too cool to clap.
Nancy Pelosi introduces him officially, and let the standing Ovation resume, sans Dick Cheney.
Let us see what this fool is finna say.
W starts to frame the speech as being about his legacy.
Mysteriously enough, it sounds just like LAST year’s speech.
And oddly enough, I feel exactly the same way about it as I did last year.
Now get on with the applause lines so I can get back to what I was doing.
