Hello Left-Wingers!

Are you a fanatical, wild-eyed left-winger, prone to posting long USENET screeds with subject lines like "DID DUBYA KILL ANN LANDERS??!!!!!! (YES!!!)" and packed with air-tight logical arguments like "bush dint't want to invade iraq until the pretzle incident THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!"?

Do you love those too-clever-by-half rhetorical shenanigans, like calling Bush "Resident Select" or "Commander In Thief" or "Republican, insofar as he 'can' steal an election!"?

If so, then, boy howdie, do I have a treat for you. Here's a neologism I just came up with, and you (you!) are welcome to use it incessantly -- in newsgroups, in letters to the editor, in long, spittle-intensive harangues delivered to the guy sitting next to you on the bus -- between now and the televised speech next Tuesday.

Are you ready? Are you sitting down? You'd better sit down. I know how excited you get about these things. I'm serious about the sitting-down. Well, anyway, here it is:

"George Bush's State of Buffoonion Address"
Go nuts. No need to thank me. In fact, you can even claim you made it up yourself. I wash my hands of the whole thing.

Update: Last night I was describing to a buddy my campaign to insinuate the phrase "State Of Buffoonion Address" into the left-wing vernacular by publicizing it on my website.

"Oh hey," he said, "While you're at it, could you try and get everyone to adopt my new phrase, too?"

I said that I would. So here it is, everyone.

"Keepin' it real in two-thousand and threeal."
Please employ it forthwith.
