Where in the World is George Bush?

Wow, it has been a long time since I updated, (two whole weeks to be exact). I’ll try not to let that happen again, but I didn’t have school last week so I pretty much decided that any time I had in-between visiting colleges and driver’s ed stuff (test tomorrow!) would be spent doing as little as possible, hence no updates.

So, to the point, what the hell happened to Bush? Seriously, it’s like he’s dropped off the face of the earth. I mean, it’s awesome that he’s not in charge anymore making stupid decisions that make the rest of us look like idiots (a fair description of a large portion of the population actually), but I sort of miss him as an easy target for political humor. All the shows like The Daily Show and Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me are stuck making empty cracks at the Obama administration, which actually are generally directed at those who oppose it. Dick Cheney has shown his head a few times to make remarks about how much better (worse) things were when he ran the country (and commanded his own private army. No, I’m dead serious about that one), but I haven’t seen Bush anywhere. He boarded that helicopter at the inauguration and flew away into the proverbial sunset. It’s weird, I had a Firefox add-on that counted the days until he left office, but watching him leave, and in the time since, it just feels weird. He was the first, and up until a few months ago the only president I have ever been aware of. I loved to hate him really. Of course, since he’s been gone the republican party has done an excellent job of opening me up to a whole range of new things to be mad about. I thought I heard that he was going to write a book, most of them do. I have an excellent title for it: Where the Wild Nukes Aren’t, and the opening sentence could be, “It was the best of times, and eight years later it was the worst of times.” There’s lots of people out there who say that it’s not as much his fault as peope make it out to be, but I’m an American, and blaming just one person as the singular reason for a crisis is a heck of a lot easier than digging through complex issues and dividing up blame. Actually, the more I think about it, the more I don’t miss him at all.
