Buh Bye Bush, Thanks For... Um, Nevermind
The whole thing, in my head at least, was going to be a sort of funny, slightly "Underminer"-ish in tone, and hopefully a little less painful to read than all those other earnest "So Long Bush" posts floating around the blogosphere today. I didn't want to seem like the overly bitter liberal, rehashing complaints we've all heard for years now (and according to polls, most of us agree with), but the weather is shitty out, I couldn't sleep at all last night, and the mood in the office on this holiday is a little grim, so I can't really bring my self to bring any sort of praise upon this simple little man, no matter how two faced. So fuck it.
I don't feel like blogging anything overlong and tortured either, I'm just happy to be done with this weird little chapter in our national history. We've got a lot of work to do to repair all that was broken in the last eight years, directly Bush-related or not, so tonight, I'm taking a page from the anger management playbook: I'll be alternately screaming into my pillow and punching it, curling up in a shivering little ball, perhaps burning Cheney in effigy, and getting all of this lame rage caused by the myriad of disappointments over and done with.
