The Last Night of Self-Loathing

I'd like to drop some profound bon mots on the fact that this is the very last night that a Bush will EVER be in charge of our country. Shhh, Jeb and the lesser generations don't yet know all that.

I wonder how many times someone on our side will tell a rightward soul "America, love it or leave it"? It's almost a shame that conservatives have been given a free pass. There ought to be some penance for their sins. And yet, as many times as Ol' Newt Gingrich has been gassin' up the airwaves lately, I'm sure that we'll all just move along and his own brand of partisanship AS politics will be forgotten.

I may never be able to stop hating them.

But that's me. Apparently, President Obama will find room for bi-partisanship. And when it is all said and done, I bet you that he will not get the credit for it that he deserves. There is still far far too much of the "two sides of the story" meme in the MSM.

Now that our side is in charge, do you think our talk radio will resemble intelligent conversations regarding our possibilities, or do you think it will resemble the vocal equivalent of a steroid-addled wrestler bringing down a figure four leglock on the popcorn vendor?

Well, it's been a damned long time since I was proud to be an American. It's nice to know that this is the very last night in a very very long nightmare.

Watching Bush leave on the helicopter today was just as important to me as all the fine words spoken by Obama.

And you're right. Obama won't get much praise for bi-partisanship. To Republicans that simply means Dems cave to their wishes.

It's our job to keep these 8 lousy years into the memory of all future voters. I think the Republicans did alot of damage to their style of politics if you can call it that, but a year from now, looking back on his first year in office, Americans will see the difference. I'm sure they will see that intelligence is better than the old C student who crapped things up.

May the name of Bush be the albatross 'round the neck of conservatism forevermore.

Thirty years of failed conservative policies and there are still people advocating that stuff.

At this point it's just insanity.

It's an idea, and thus can never be completely discredited. Therefore, prison.

Well said!

I told a group of coworkers yesterday that the greatest thing I heard spoken all day yesterday was not Obama's speech--it was the phrase "former president George W Bush".

I'll never stop hating them either.
