Goodbye Mr. President

I am counting down the seconds until Bush 2 is gone. Gone from the White House. Gone from my sight. And most importantly gone from my hearing. For the last 8 years, I have been switching channels, muting the TV or screaming at various electronic appliances whenever that HORRID SOUND comes out. He has the most annoying voice on the planet! And I know I am not alone in thinking so.


I truly hope not to see him ever again — unless it is in front of the World Court being prosecuted for his crimes. And as Paul Krugman wrote in the NY TImes today, there are plenty of reasons to think we should see him there.

Let’s be clear what we’re talking about here. It’s not just torture and illegal wiretapping, whose perpetrators claim, however implausibly, that they were patriots acting to defend the nation’s security. The fact is that the Bush administration’s abuses extended from environmental policy to voting rights. And most of the abuses involved using the power of government to reward political friends and punish political enemies.

If there is anything we can do to make sure that W gets his comeuppance, I am in. Money, time, blood. I’m in.
