Bush as tin-pot

2004-12-08 03:02:59.409519+00 by Dan Lyke 7 comments

Hey, got a question for ya! What do you call a leader who dresses in faux military garb, complete with epaulets and name over the left breast, and has pictures on billboards emblazoned "our leader"?

Oh man. We've gotta drive out I-4 later this month from the Orlando airport to my parents' house, I hope they've removed this eyesore before then! If not, hmm, what is the penalty for throwing a strategic tomato at a billboard? (And if anyone starts calling this *ss-clown of a president "Dear Leader", I'm definitely heading for Finland!)

Diane, I've been wondering this for a while now. Why Finland?

My husband's company is headquartered in Finland and we could essentially move there next week and be assured of a regular income, they'd welcome him with open arms.

Learning Finnish would be a bear, though...

Perhaps because:

You're so near to Russia,
So far from Japan.
Quite a long way from Cairo,
Lots of miles from Vietnam.

There's a tradition of presidents wearing pseudo-military garb. My biggest disappointment with Bush's choice is that I first thought it was a Members Only jacket.
