Image of the Union


From Yahoo News Photos.

I was barely watching the speech. When Safia Taleb al-Suhail, leader of the Iraqi Women's Political Council, received a standing ovation from both Houses of Congress I was moved. But when she hugged Janet Norwood, whose son died fighting in Iraq, I had to turn away. No one expects real human emotion from the State of the Union. Goodness. They should warn us or something.

Oh, and by the way, it's political freaking gold.
