yes, we're smarter than you.

shout out to my buddy rex, former bomb-sniffer, who found a handy way to skip out of military duty. he got to attend the state of the union address and, according to salon, had the appropriate response, though i myself might have taken the opportunity to relieve myself on the republican leadership, too:

Up in the bleachers, a few rows behind first lady Laura Bush, a single member of the audience decided to lie down throughout the speech. Rex, the bomb-sniffing dog, earned an invitation because his handler, Sgt. Jamie Dana, had survived an improvised explosive device in Iraq. Rex, who lay next to Dana, was meant to represent the enduring bonds that survive the horrors of war. But by all appearances, the dog wasn't particularly taken by the symbolism or the speech. It was a pose that seemed somehow wise in retrospect.
