The British newspaper, Daily Mail, today suggested we’d all miss George W Bush.
With images like this:
The paper is suggesting that a world without Bush’s clowning and immature antics will be somewhat lacking; that somehow his tomfoolery brought a little sunshine into our lives.
They could be right, if we conveniently forget all the dead, and the maimed, and the broken, and the widowed, and the orphans.
No, we shall not miss George W Bush. And we will not forget him either. We’ll remember him every time we see images like this:
This girl is an Iraqi orphan at a demonstration of widows and orphans asking for help, in Kerbala, on Saturday November 1st 2008.
The sign she is holding reads:
I am an orphan and nobody cares about me”
Fuck you, George W Bush. You won’t be missed.
