July 6. Mark that sucker on your calendar. Big day for America. Junior will reach 61 years of (chronological) age. Let the festivities begin!
Count on Laura to stand by her man on his Big Day. Apparently she emailed supporters of the Republican National Committee (yes, both of them), saying: “Please consider commemorating President Bush’s 61st birthday with a gift our entire Party can share.” Impeachment proceedings? No! Donations of $61 to the RNC and an opportunity to sign the RNC’s birthday card to Junior. Woo hoo!!
I’m flat-out tired of George.
I’m sick of his attitude, his persona, and his snotty little smirk.
I don’t like his policies. What? You didn’t know he has policies?
I don’t like his signing statements.
I don’t like his default deceptive nature.
I don’t like his cronies—the "heckuva job" bunch.
I am bone weary from executive privilege.
I don’t like that he’s dishonored the presidency.
I don’t like that he’s dismantling democracy.
I don’t like that he’s playing war games with the world.
I am furious that he doesn’t honor each dead U.S. soldier by name.
I'm tired of his saccharine Stepford bride.
I don’t like his pearl-bedecked mother.
I’m ambivalent about his father.
I’m not crazy about his daughters.
I don’t give a rip about his siblings.
I am tired of brush-clearing and truth-burying.
I’m offended by the American flag pin on Junior's lapel.
This could on for some time. And might. But the bottom line here is that I won’t be sending $61 to the RNC any time soon. Is that because I hate George W. Bush? Did you see the word “hate” in the list above. No. I just don’t like him and pretty much everything he stands for, if indeed he really stands for anything.
SO, what’s the bottom, bottom line? If you don’t like Junior either, send $61 to your presidential or legislative candidate of choice (I commend Congressman Tim Walz for your consideration). And make sure they know it’s in honor of Junior’s birthday. Kind of a nice touch, don’t you think?
