Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It has been quite a while since my last confession.
I come to you now because I was a bad, BAD person when it came to President George "Dubya" Bush's constitutionally-mandated State Of The Union address last night. I didn't want to watch it. When Mrs. Geek turned it on, just to know what it is we're up against in the coming year, I put in ear plugs. When she noted that the Republican members of Congress kept giving him standing ovations and asked why, I said it was because it was easier for all of them to mutually masturbate in the standing position. After a while I got angry about the smug, self satisfied look on the President's face and made Mrs. Geek change the channel to watch a taped re-run of "Good Eats" until the Democratic response came on.
I'm truly sorry for these and my other sins, Father. Will God and holy mother Church give me absolution?
I am a bad person.
