The details of last night are just a little hazy to me, despite the fact that no intoxicants were ingested(unless you count eucalyptus oil. Just don't ask).

Mistakes were made. Oh yes, mistakes were made- in the planning of my evening.

I mean, how many of you have fallen for this line?

"Let's watch that Wes Craven movie, Red Eye, that just came out, and we can pause it in the middle and watch Bush's speech. It'll be so much fun!"

Right. I would have preferred to engage in fewer activities last night that involved the gratuitous showing of a B/bush and reliance on the deus ex machina to reach denoument. She just "found" a gun after running around her house for a little while? And he "believes" the new plan that isn't any different from the old plan will work? Somebody get me Peggy Noonan!

That said, props to Bush for his passive construction- that's gonna be fodder for high school english teachers for decades. Way to ruin it for the rest of us who know that passive voice can be used with panache.
