Most satisfying political images of 2008
Let's try to forget about the depressing state of Canadian politics and leadership at the moment (with the possible exception of Michael Ignatieff, who could become a great Prime Minister one day soon), and instead congratulate our American friends for turning away so thoroughly this year from the terrible legacy of George W. Bush.
As Bush's regime comes to an end, these images more than anything else proved for me the most inspiring and satisfying this year.
Ever the supportive wife, Laura Bush has reminded us the shoe attack was really just an "assault", not to be laughed at. True, but nothing compares to the murderous assaults committed by Bush and his Republican war machine against the Arab world over the last eight years (including the American tragedy of 9-11.)
We now have a chance to heal the evils of right-wing Republicanism. I never thought I'd write this, but thank you, America!
Have a lovely New Year, everybody!
Thanks for reading!
