The thing was, the more I wandered around the Internets, the less solemn I got. I just got more angry with each little article I read. I watched a Keith Olbermann editorial (talking about Bush’s disastrous interview with Politico).
After some more articles, I didn’t want to be reflective. I was pissed, plain and simple.
So, I posted nothing.
Today, I came up with a stupid little idea, but one which made me feel better. I know a lot of people have countdown timers on their blog, marking the time before Bush leaves office.
That’s fine and all, but something too passive for how I am feeling. I wanted to tell Bush to go away — go away RIGHT NOW.
So I made a little webpage:
It’s a simple page, with a very simple idea. Each unique visit to the page increments a counter. The counter represents the number of times Bush has been told to “GO AWAY”.
A person can have any number of reasons to visit the page. Perhaps it’s the high cost of gasoline. Maybe it’s someone still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Katrina. Maybe a mother or father lost a child in Iraq, fighting in a war this president started. Maybe a mother or father lost a child when a bomb hit their village, or when a Blackwater soldier gunned them down. Maybe it’s because Bush can’t pronounce the word “nuclear”.
Whatever the reason, you can tell Bush to GO AWAY now. It’s okay. Go ahead. And you can tell him again, and again, and again, until he really does go away.
It’s my gift to you.
