Everyone knows you can’t give a serious speech to a joint session of congress that doesn’t tackle the crucial issue of human-animal hybrids. President Bush showed how it was done in the 2006 SOTU:

A hopeful society has institutions of science and medicine that do not cut ethical corners and that recognize the matchless value of every life.

Tonight I ask you to pass legislation to prohibit the most egregious abuses of medical research: human cloning in all its forms; creating or implanting embryos for experiments; creating human-animal hybrids; and buying, selling or patenting human embryos.

That’s a speech! Economy, health care, education, blah blah blah who cares. I want my chimeras. Maybe we can hide from them in a base on the Moon.
