ANOTHER TASTELESS COMMERCIAL VENTURE


For some reason I cannot fully understand - maybe because I don't actually live in the country - this cruel countdown calendar is a runaway best seller all over America, where citizens of every stripe are climbing over one another, clamoring and clawing for even just one copy of this tasteless commercial venture to hang prominently on home or office wall and cross off each and every day like a stitch in an open wound until the end of a singular era, however grotesque they may believe that era to be, in a sickening display of gross and flagrant disrespect for the highest office in the land! Surely, as members of a representative democracy we have been taught to respect our duly elected officials, however alleged, and no matter the extent to which they are said to have sullied their office? They represent us, one and all! What is civic responsibility coming to? Anywhere I can get one of these in Japan?

I don't believe I would like having to look at this calendar day in and day out with George W's pictures on it.

I am neither mainstream nor totally out-of-it, and I have not heard of this grotesque desecration. I'll see if I can find it and buy a few. How many do you want?

Sadly the joke on on us!

Thanks for the info, I'll spread the news around the office.

However I would not want to look at that mug daily!
