A distinct lack of caring
There’s apparently a SOTU address tonight. Right now, even. I’m tempted to watch it, just because it’s the last one Bush is going to give. Even that’s not enough, though. What’s he going to do in a year? Actually, I shouldn’t say that. He’ll do something insane and prove me wrong.
I’m not sure what I’m going to do when Bush leaves. I get the impression from liberals I read that Bush is a uniquely bad president. The problem is, I have no idea. What other presidency have I paid attention to? The Clinton years? Aside from voting for Bob Dole in a mock election in 6th grade because that’s who my parents were going to vote for (the vote was a landslide for Clinton, by the way; 6th graders are surprisingly bright), I don’t remember much. Has my perspective been warped by Bush? Is this what I’m going to think about all Republican presidents? Am I going to be so disappointed by a Democratic presidency that I join the Montana blogosphere’s libertarian curmudgeon wing? Hell, what happens if a Democrat isn’t elected in November?
We’ll know soon enough, I guess.
