So this is it, the final day of the caterwauling Mongolian clusterfuck of a so-called administration that was the George Dubya Bush presidency, but while I am inexpressably ecstatic at him and his cronies finally hauling their buzzardlike carcasses out of the White House, I would truly love to see Dubya end his term in style. By that I mean sauntering onto the front lawn of the White House in broad daylight, buck nekkid save for a huge cowboy hat and boots with spurs, and when in the most picture-perfect spot, whipping out a three-foot, lime green bong and sucking down a huge chamberfull of the skunkiest ditch-weed imaginable and following his copious exhalation by guzzling down an entire bottle of Wild Turkey in one go.

I dunno about you, but I would pay $200 cash up front to see that and be allowed to take a couple of pictures for posterity. But enough of my fantasies.

On this, the eve of the long-awaited changeover on commanders-in-chief, I thought it appropos to run this list of twenty-five actual quotes from Dubya, sent in by my old friend Jim Browski. If you've seen these before feel free to gloss this over, but for those who have not been exposed to this, keep in mind that this man was in charge of our fair nation for the past eight years.

It still hasn't sunk in yet. I'm still numb from years of dreading what new monstrosity this, soon to be expired, "Adminsistration" would hatch next. Such relief that this eight year disaster will soon be over. Good riddance to bad RubBush!

I know it's been said that Bush was the first president we voted in because he was the guy we'd rather sit down and have a beer with.

But man, this guy is too dense for me to want to even have a beer with him. I wounldn't even want to have a bus stop conversation about the weather with him.

Now, the things I would want to do in his vicinity, well, I'll keep those to myself lest I get a visit from federal officials...

I'm not American yet i think the world, along with the people of America, can truly unite in that relief that Mr Bush is leaving the presidency to a (hopefully) more able man.

Confession: I think it was 2000 when, in the 'countdown' to the announcement of the new president, I enthusastically supported Bush over Al Gore. When the news came that Bush had indeed won, it felt good....

To make it clear, I was ten at the time, i knew NOTHING of policies, political parties or the 'character' of both men.

And... i was a bit of an idiot.

Anyway... goodbye, Bush!

We'll... miss you???

It really is staggering to think that Bush was RE-ELECTED. The guy has always been an empty wooden puppet, and we "may" have been better off if his brother Jeb was commander in cheif, IF it was going to be a Bush. Not sure if it is one of his daughters or both, but supposedly, one of them is a Barrack Obama supporter and voted for him. There is hope for that family yet...Xtina

I never voted for this man, never supported him or his ideologies, and I am incredibly releived to see him go. He still has time to try and take over the government or something, but hopefully he doesn't have the balls...

QuickBrownFox said...

Thanks you for this. I'm almost afraid what the world will be like when Dubya is gone, the comedy and hopefully tragedy in the world will surely decline.

I think we can triple that:

Useless, useless, useless motherfucker.

Great blog.
