In Honor of President's Day
In recognition of everything that you have given to this country, Mr. President, the least we can do is thank you. Thank you for the laughs that you provided for us over the past 5 years.
But more importantly, thank you for making us cry.
Thank you for making Iraqi men, women, and children cry over the thousands of innocents killed by your "moab's" and "precision bombs."
Thank you, Mr. Commander-in-Thief, for liberating them and then leaving their timeless, priceless artifacts to be looted by thugs while your boys were guarding the Oil Ministry.
Thank you for staining the history of ancient Mesopotamia with your dirty wars.
Thank you for defiling the image of America by hiring security contractors and allowing torture in Abu Ghraib and other secret prisons around the world.
Thanks for flicking off the international community when you brushed off Kyoto and the International Criminal Court.
Oh, and thanks for spreading democracy across the Middle East and then punishing citizens for who they voted for because you "misunderestimated" them.
