What Will We Do?

What will we all do when it’s over?
“It” in this instance is the never-ending campaign soon actually to end. For myself, I started writing a Blog for reasons unknown—“Because it’s there, said the man when asked why he climbed Mt. Everest?” Now, the Blog has turned into this liberal rant on the election. But, now, “whither thou goest?” We’ll just have to see, I guess.
I’m also thinking of my Bush corner. See, for the past several years, I have been producing a Bush calendar. It obviously makes fun of Bush—he’s such a target . . . like those mighty hunters who shoot moose and other sides of barns. My calendar is pretty funny, and allows me to laugh at this most disastrous president we have ever had in this once proud nation, soon to be proud again. But my Bush corner also contains a Bush countdown calendar—a little electronic thing about the size of a credit card that counts down the days til he leaves office and returns, with Cheney, to his spiderhole in Texas. Our little corner contains a daily calendar that you tear off each day, to reveal something inane our doofus president has said, and there are so many. Finally, there is a collection of little buttons that proclaim something about our stupid president. That whole corner will now have to go, to be replaced by art . . . or maybe just by soap, a truly symbolic gesture.
I also wonder what will happen to Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert, whose careers have been made by our comedic president and his idiotic advisers and spokespeople. . Think of William Krystol, “why is everyone so exercised? It’s not a psychodrama; it’s ONLY AN ELECTION.” Or about his latest press spokeswoman, Dana Perino, who seemed to have no idea what the Cuban Missile Crisis was all about—Uhh, the possibility of blowing up the entire planet??? Or his VEEP, who shot his friend in the face after having a few beers and then deciding to go shooting quail. Who will provide Stewart and Colbert with such rich material? I realize you can make fun of anyone, but Bush is like the Mother Lode of comedic material.
Well, I guess we’ll all just have to cope.
Of course, if Sarah Palin gets elected . . .
