One-Note Symphony
This is one of the better columns I've read about the State of the Union address. But rather than comparing it to Beethoven's Fifth stuck on the first four notes, maybe Final Countdown would have been a better analogy. One little phrase repeated over and over and over and over and over until you just can't stand it anymore.

I also like his point that "evil" is just a label (and an oversimplifying one at that). It tells us nothing new, gives us no new way to understand the situation. All it does is give a veneer of righteousness to what we're doing.
