Pottersville in Pictures: Goodbye, Mr. Cowchips Edition

As Inauguration Day draws near, what better delineation is there of the impact of the illegitimate interregnum between the 42nd and 43rd presidents (aka the Bush Administration) than pictures? They say that a picture is worth 1000 words. Here's a mini novel of how the "real America" really feels about Bush. The following pictures were culled from Flickr.

(Turnabout is fair play. He's pissed us off long enough. The Bush urinal cake is a big seller in Seattle.)

(Again in Washington state, in a storefront in Bellingham.)

(From Portland, Oregon.)

(Here's one from, ironically, Chinatown.)

(An actual billboard from Phoenix. Now that's what I call truth in advertising!)

(The kid's standing near Bellingham's Federal Building, where every Friday afternoon since 1965 people gather to demonstrate for peace & justice - the longest continuous peace movement demonstration in the United States. - Robin Dude.)

Mr. Gray [...] says his intention was never to target the restaurant chain. "I would never, ever attack McDonald's," he said at the public ceremony on Friday. "That's not my thing." - Santa Barbara News-Press, 09/02/06). I guess Bush was another story entirely.

(HTML for impeachment? Pedestrian Overpass, Campus Drive, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin.)

(New York City) If I told them how I really feel about him, I'd weigh close to 300 pounds by now.

(It's one thing to be there when everything goes wonky and try your best
to cope. It's another thing entirely to see entirety on the brink and
do nothing but put yourself in a position to ride it out. I suspect
there were plenty in the late 20s who saw the depression looming and set themselves up as nicely as the neo-con ass-hats are doing right now. - sillydog)


(Of course, what collection of this sort would be a collection at all if we didn't hear from San Francisco?)

(I suspect there are one or two more of these signs like this one found in Minnesota.)

(I've posted this one before from the UK but it's too good not to recycle. And recycling is good.)

(They're not too apeshit over Bush in Belfast...)

(Or Sydney, Australia, either.)

(Or Austria...)

(Or Uruguay...)

(or Berlin... The caption says "War is Terror.)

(From Detroit, MI, a state that Bush will no doubt claim to have singlehandedly saved.)

Now, lest you think I'm trying to create a purely liberal consensus, it ought to be noted that not everybody hated Bush. In fact, some of them had an admirably high opinion of him. Click for larger image if necessary.)

Boy, that was 2 1/2 hours well-spent. I'd've been better off spending that time trimming my toenails.

You should really consider getting some sort of a life.

You know you're doing it to exorcize you inner demons as much as you're doing it for the rest of us, JP.

Way ahead of you, pal. I was thinking along the same lines as you, only sooner.

Now if ya'll will excuse me, I have a novel to revise and sell...

Great art and good stuff, let's hope that Obama art doesn't have so many bad things to go on by 2016.

And I'd ignore the anon haters, they no doubt voted for him and feel embarassed...
