I’m probably going to be one of the few people left who think Bush remains an illegitimate occupier of the White House.
My personal viewpoint is that he wouldn’t have even been in Tuesday’s election had he not stolen the 2000 election thanks to the Imperial Supreme Court.
And he has never acted presidential; a president leads humbly, rejects hubris, rejects imperial pretensions.
He is a usurper and acts like an emperor, not a democratic president.
Therefore, on this website, George W. Bush will still never be referred to as ‘the president,’ nor will he be in my speech or other writing.
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck. And Dumbya looks like an emperor, walks like an emperor and he certainly quacks like an emperor.
The only concession I will make is that I won’t call him the Boy Emperor anymore. He’s now grown up and doesn’t need his regency anymore. I hereby acknowledge that he’s calling the shots; it’s ALL his mess, his death and destruction and extremism.
This ‘blog was created in August 2001 to document the excesses of an Imperial administration and yell, ‘Tripe!’ whenever he served it up. I had hoped to be able to make it softer and less snarky during a restoration of the presidency under Kerry. Unfortunately, that’s not a luxury that those of us who oppose the imperialization of the White House can afford. We ALL must yell ‘Tripe!’ and yell it loudly for the next four years.
And with that: George II is the first American Emperor. Heil Bush!
