SOTU Parody: This One’s Choice

by Philip Baruth

On Friday, I put up the first of the yearly crop of State of the Union parodies, one I graded A-/B+.

Here’s a solid A: chillingly close to real life, using fairly sophisticated technology to splice Bush’s words into what you can only imagine are his actual thoughts.

But it’s not a parody of this year’s SOTU. It’s a look back at the SOTU that gave us the War in Iraq. And it’s brutal and true and funny all at once.

Tremble, evil-doers.
