We cats never regret being cats. Sure, we don't run a big corporation or know how to do long division or anything like that — but one does not ever rue one's existence as a Superior Being.
However, just now we kind of wish we had hands instead of paws. Because if we did, we could join the "Finger Salute to Bush" movement.
Here's the idea: On Inauguration Day, after President Obama is sworn in and George W. Bush's helicopter leaves the South Lawn of the White House for the last time, millions of Americans will stand up joyfully and say goodbye in the best way they know how.
By flipping him the bird.
Gosh, does anyone deserve it more than Bush? (Okay, maybe Cheney.) But aside from a certain sense of gleeful satisfaction it would give, a collective "up yours" to The Worst Person Who Ever Lived could do more than anything to effectively counter the misinformation of Bush's recent, tone-deaf "legacy tour." You know, the one in which the nation's problems were everyone's fault but his?
That's right, America. Tell Bush what you think of the destruction of our civil liberties, the political hijacking of the Justice Department, the waging of unnecessary war, the drowning of New Orleans, the escape of Osama bin Laden, and the destruction of our economy. If you can't get a group together to finger-salute for the cameras (MSM or otherwise), just do it in the privacy of your living rooms.
We cats will watch you with appreciation and envy. And maybe wave our little paws in the air, to celebrate the Age of Obama.
