President Bush had 'em rockin' and rollin' in the aisles tonight, complete with a bit of finger-waggin' at the Demo-cats. Bet all that jumpin' up and down was more exercise than those politicos have gotten in a loooong time.

And d'ya' know that, among those sittin' in the First Lady's Box was…

"Technical Sergeant Jamie Dana and Rex, USAF, Smethport, Pennsylvania. Technical Sergeant Dana joined the Air Force in 1998 and is stationed at Peterson Air Force Base outside of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Her dog, Rex, is a 5-year-old German shepherd former working military dog.

"…Dana and Rex trained together for three years before deploying as a team first to Pakistan and then to Iraq. While in Iraq, their assignments included supporting Army personnel by clearing vehicles at checkpoints and searching buildings for booby traps and explosives.

"On June 25, 2005, the pair was riding in a Humvee when a roadside bomb exploded, wounding Technical Sergeant Dana. Later, as she recovered at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, she sought to adopt Rex. A law prohibited the adoption of working dogs before the end of their useful lives, but this prohibition was lifted as a result of the Defense Appropriations Bill that the President signed into law on December 30, 2005, and the Air Force granted her permission to adopt Rex."

A stray fe-lyin' wandered in and was arrested by Capitol police for creatin' a disturbance.
