I’ve become so disenchanted with George W. Bush and his whole Administration that I even tried a “counting backward” widget on my sidebar thinking I could edit it daily counting backward to see the number of days left before January 20, 2009 (the next inaugural), but daily editing became cumbersome so I took it off. I want to go on record by saying that I did not vote for Bush, but when he was elected, like the John Wayne quote brought up by various talking heads recently, I said to myself, “well I didn’t vote for him, but he’s my president and I’ll support him. I hope he does a good job.” Well he didn’t! And when I think it can’t get much worse, it does! (The Libby commutation Tuesday and impending pardon sometime next year! Yeah, it’ll happen, just wait and see!) And I no longer support him, I just try to put up with him, hoping he doesn’t do too much more damage, or that somebody with the power will stop him before he does.
So today when I opened my local newspaper, The Salt Lake City Tribune of SLC, Utah, this cartoon looked like one made just for me. I can’t quite read the name of the cartoonist but it’s there in the corner if you look. He/she gets ALL the credit. We have some of the best cartoonists here!
