What a titanic disaster he turned out to be. Arrogance. Ignorance. Inaccountability. Dereliction of duty on 9/11. Warmongering. Torture. Shredding of the Constitution. Katrina. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Bush owns them all. Don't let the door hit you on the way out, jerkoff. The next time we'd like to see you is on trial for war crimes.
Today marks a truly remarkable moment for Americans. At 64 I'm old enough to remember the shock of confronting overt racial segregration for the first time. I was born and grew up in Massachusetts. Nearly fifty years ago my dad took our family to Washington, DC -- where I caught a glimpse of the newly-nominated John F. Kennedy on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. (We had hope then too.)
Our longtime pal Jody visited last week from New York City. She and her squeeze Emmett had graciously hosted us on the Manhattan legs of our recently-completed Eurotrash Holidaze Tour.
We always hang with Jody and Emmett in Maximum City. It was a special treat to spend some q-time with her here in our hometown.
