I am sure mostl of you by now have seen this quote from today's Washington Post story on the SOTU Speech:

The emotional highpoint of last night's event came near the end when Bush introduced the parents of a U.S. Marine from Texas, Sgt. Byron Norwood, who was killed in the assault on Fallujah, Iraq. As Norwood's mother tearfully hugged another woman in the gallery, the assembled senators and representatives responded with a sustained ovation, and Bush's face appeared creased with emotion.

Maybe I am overreacting, but this seems like despicable bias... Anyone who watched the SOTU knows the context of that hug. Read more about it here.
