George W. Bush Is Dead To Me 
Nation cringes as the worst president ever continues long, painful 
slog to the end

It is like some sort of virus. It is like some sort of weird and 
painful rash on your face that makes you embarrassed to walk out the 
door and so you sit there day after day, waiting for it to go away, 
slathering on ointment and Bactine and scotch. And yet still it 

Some days the pain is so searing and hot you want to cut off your own 
head with a nail file. Other days it is numb and pain-free and 
seemingly OK, to the point where you think it might finally be all 
gone and you allow yourself a hint of a whisper of a positive 
feeling, right up until you look in the mirror, and scream. 

George W. Bush is just like that. 

Everyone I know has had enough. Everyone I know is just about done. 
There is this threshold of happy deadened disgust, this point where 
the body simply resigns itself to the pain, a point where the 
disease, the poison has seeped so deeply into the bones that you just 
have to laugh and shrug it all off and go for a drink. Or 10. 

I was having cocktails recently with a group of people, among whom 
were two lifetime Republicans, each in his 60s, corporate 
businessmen, one admittedly slightly more moderate than the other (to 
the point where, after once hearing a senator read off a long list of 
Bush's hideous environmental atrocities, actually let his conscience 
lead his choice and ended up voting for Kerry) but nevertheless both 
devoted members of the party. 

Bush came up, as a topic, as a cancer, as a fetid miasma in the air. 
They were both shaking their heads. They were sighing heavily. They 
were both, in a word, disgusted. The more staunchly conservative of 
the two even went so far as to say he was so embarrassed and 
humiliated by this president, by this administration, so appalled at 
all the war atrocities and the wiretapping and the misuse of law, the 
fiscal irresponsibility and the abuse of the lower classes and the 
outright arrogance, that if the Dems could somehow produce a decent 
moderate candidate with a brain, he'd have zero problem switching 
allegiances and voting for him. Or her.
