Hey Hey Hey… Goodbye

No… I’m not going away. But someone is. And I’m glad.

This week as we get closer to the inauguration of Barack Obama as our 44th President, I keep hearing the song “Kiss Him Goodbye” in my head. It’s a fitting song for our 43rd President as it has barely any words and fills space by just repeating a non-word (Na-na-na-na) over and over. George Bush has been many things, but in my opinion, a great president is not one of them. So… in his final days of office, let’s reminisce about some of the things George Bush is.

George Bush is:

…a creative linguist who has uttered some interesting, bizarre and sometimes downright embarrassing words or phrases.

…a good ducker. He can duck not one, but two flying shoes, without breaking a sweat.

…a positive thinker. In an interview with Pat Robertson he declared, “Oh no, we aren’t going to have any casualties,” while discussing the Iraq war in 2003.

…an educational system pioneer. He’s practically timewarped our education system back to the Pioneer days. No Child Left Behind could have been titled “All Children Left Behind”.

…a dedicated storyteller who continues to read to children during a national disaster. There’s dedication, for you.

…able to read between the lines. The lines of the redacted Constitution, that is.

…a very life-like puppet. Who knew that in 20 years, the people who brought you Kermit-the-Frog could bring us such a realistic Cheney-controlled puppet? Technology is really something, isn’t it?

…gone. In only two days, he really will be.

So who want’s to sing it with me? “Na-na-na-na, Na-na-na-na, hey hey hey… GOODBYE.”

    Well, I’m no good singing, but I’ll certainly hum along and thump a washtub.

    I figure Bush only has about 18 hours left to plunge us all into World War Three. It isn’t over till it’s over, but he’s starting to run out of time.

    I can’t sing either but I can whistle, tap my feet and do the happywheelchairdance!

    Gawd I hope National Healthcare for All is near the top of Obama’s “To Do” list.

    I wish you were off work/school tomorrow. I feel like celebrating at that new tacky Scottish Pub.

    I couldn’t help hoping that Cheney’s aide would let her hands slip off the handles of his wheelchair and let him fly down a long tall ramp…

    I’m glad he didn’t try pulling any harebrained schemes before walking out of the front door. I expected blanketing pardons and blocks to indict officials breaking laws pertaining to wiretapping, but he kept quiet. Whatever nonsensical stuff flies out of his mouth, I think he realizes that history won’t be kind to him and that he has really messed things up for Republicans in the near future.
