You Will Need This, State of the Union Survival Kit

You Will Need This, State of the Union Survival Kit

By Leon (Producer) Leon

After tonight, we will never have to listen to George W. Bush deliver another one of his fact-challenged, language-mangling State of the Union speeches. But we still have to get through this evening -- and the DCCC has a couple of tools to help.

First, a dose of reality -- something that's always in short supply when President Bush steps to the podium. We've been conducting a Real State of the Union video contest. And we can't thank you enough for sending over your responses -- our celebrity panel of judges is reviewing the videos now so that tomorrow we can release our response, by the people for the people to the Real State of the Union.

But wait, there's more. We're also standing by with our real-time Lie Detector. As soon as the words leave his mouth tonight, we're going to fact check the President and send a text message when he overstates his case or misstates the facts in an effort to rewrite the history of his failed policies. While we focus on a better future, we can't let him rewrite history.

Sign up now to receive our Lie Detector text messages during the President's speech.

Tonight is a landmark -- one more giant step out of the Bush/Cheney wilderness. Don't worry, you can get through this. And remember, we're here to help.
