coming out of the burrow

Conversation last night while watching the state of the union wrap-up.
Me: Do you think it's a coincidence that the state of the union was given on Ground Hog's day?
S: How many beers have you had?
Me: I mean, it's all projection, but you don't know until later if it's going to come true. Of course, Puxatawney Phil's been right 20 of the last 26 years...

my mom sent me this comment that a friend of my parents made: "The other day was both groundhog day and Bush's state of the union address. One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication and the other involves a groundhog."

That pretty much sums it up (and proves how lacking I am in originality!). Thanks for the quote!
