I mention this not because I’m going to go (it’s in Texas)…

…but because the hostile commentary about it is remarkable for the tones of desperation and weariness that cling to said commentary. Five years after the man left office, the people who remain firm Bush-haters are, by and large, the ones who have built their entire lives around hating one man. If they let go, they will have noting left with which to give their souls meaning and drive.
It’s horrible, of course. But it’s also a warning. In less than three years the current President will be out of office. When that day comes, let him get the f*ck out of your life and move, as they say, on. Don’t be the guy or gal who sits in their own hate in a darkened room. You’re better than that.
PS: I’m not really fond of GWB’s human portraits, but this bird is nice. I may get it for my mother for Christmas, because I want to see her reaction (she simultaneously can’t stand the man, and deeply approves of his forays into painting).
