The handful of Americans who managed to stay awake through President Bush's State of the Union address noted there was nothing especially noteworthy. Listening to the speech backwards, however, reveals Bush apparently saying "Gore was right about everything!" several times.
Press Secretary Tony Snow admitted that Bush speeches occasionally have hidden satanic messages, but denied the Gore comment was intentional or accurate. "Just because Gore was right about Iraq, global warming, energy policy, AIDS, and health care doesn't mean he was right about everything," said Snow. He also noted that Gore never made any comments Baby Einstein. "We have the edge on that one," he gloated.
The hidden message sent reporters scrambling to listen to other Bush speeches backwards. An AP reporter listened to 84 hours of speeches backwards and found nothing. "Backwards all you hear are annoying, nonsensical screeches. Pretty much the same thing you hear when they are played normally," he said.
Bush himself denied that backwards comment was an odd Freudian slip. "I haven't worn women's underwear since my drunken misguided youth," he said.
