More on representations

Via Instapundit, Jules Crittenden writes the State of the Union speech that he thinks President Bush should give. Readers of the former incarnation of this blog may remember that Ariana Huffington did the same for Ned Lamont. It's not really a favor: Such speeches are of course a way for the (real) writer to tell off people who don't agree with them, while evading the responsibility of leadership -- the responsibility of forging consensus and coalitions (as well as maintaining decorum).
