Bush got booed today.
CNN - Sycophants to the last, edited the booes out of their live mix - how the hell they did that I can only say thanks to the advent of digital television - we're going to be getting a lot of live editing - a few seconds delay will mean a LOT.
The clip I saw on YouTube (I'll add it later, being lazy today) - I guess the poor commentators had to say it, but they were lamenting over the booing. Oh, poor taste, bad form, I'm sorry to hear that. Oh, they shouldn't do that.
Which just goes to show how far we've come from America - Home of the Free to America, Home of the PC. I'll watch any number of racist pricks on Jerry Springer in full Klan regalia taking advantage of their First Amendment rights and being decidedly un-PC in exchange for the continued right to boo or jeer at ANY public official responsible for the mess George Bush and Co. have left us in.
Not to mention how he leaves is how he came in. How quickly we forget that people were booing back in 2001 when he jacked the presidency in the first place AND throwing eggs and rotten tomatoes at his motorcade. He didn't get to make the walk to the White House that year. It's only out of respect for Obama that most people stuck to booing and singing that Bush was out of the Oval Office. You gotta love the black folks singing "Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye!" Brave souls every one of 'em and God Bless 'em.
I know - take the high road, turn the other cheek. Whateva. Georgie and Laura, George Sr. and Dick Cheney, Rummy and Rovey, Ricey and Wolfowitzy - get the F out. You ain't gotta go to Crawford but you got to get the hell out the White House. Let the doorknob hitcha where the Good Lord splitcha - hit the road jack and don'tcha come back no more, no more, no more, no more...
Yes, Dear God, I'm bitter, about the past 8 years. It's gonna take 8 years of Obama minimally pissing me off (still can't forget FISA) to get the sour taste of our broken Republic out of my mouth.
I'll do my semi-fan-girl welcome of the Obama's tomorrow. But today. I'll just heave a sigh of relief that the Bush years - hopefully and thankfully- are OVER.
George is going, going GONE!
Slip out the back Jack
Make a new plan Stan
You don't need to be coy Roy
Just listen to me
Hop on the bus Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key Lee
And get yourself free!
