Transcript of Bush's speech last night, courtesy WashingtonPost.com.

BBC analysis didn't get much out of it. Post Analysis says the speech lacked actual answers. NYTimes analysis sees a tough five-weeks coming up for the President. NYTimes also has an editorial with some advice for Bush. The review by Tom Shales notes the major networks chose not to carry the speech.

EDIT (12:57 pm) -> Dan Froomkin has a good wrapup of various other opinion pieces.

The scene:

[me, driving home, singing along to the radio]
[weird itching on my neck]

AUGH FUCK THERE'S A FUCKING CICADA ON MY NECK asdlfk;jas;fsda!!!

[denoument: cicada on neck dealt with without crashing the freakin' car.]

(Man, and I thought it was just bad news this morning that's making me have a bad day. Now it's turned from suck to blow.)
