The other day I participated in a brainstorming session in a political discussion group. We came up with a list of catchphrases that we are likely to hear from the President in his State of the Union address. I have created a handy printable checklist. Keep a copy with you tonight as you watch the SOTU. This way *YOU*, too, can have a “pen in your hand” and experience a bit of the power that entails.
Tomorrow you can compare your list with all your friends’ lists. Most tick marks wins! Another way to win is to drink a beverage every time you “catch” one of the catchphrases. You will be very happy and relaxed by the conclusion. “Journalist” analysis? GOP and Tea Party responses? Who cares? What difference does it make?
Stay warm and have fun!
