Many on the losing side of the last presidential election are in despair and some have even gone to extreme lengths because of their depression. But some who are upset have found creative ways to express their frustration. A Savannah, Georgia couple has created The Official George W. Bush "Countdown to Retirement" 4-Year Calendar. This humorous calendar counts down the days until the end of George Bush's second term.
"I was pretty upset over the election. I thought it would be fun if I had a calendar to cross off the days until Bush is gone." said Stephen Lowry, a Savannah lawyer who is active in the Democratic Party.
The calendar contains pictures of George Bush along with many of his quotes. "I thought the person who best explains why he should not be president is Bush himself." said Lowry. A red Official Mark-Out Bush Pen is included with the calendar so that people can mark off the days until inauguration day 2009. "From January 1, 2005 there are 1,480 days until our next president is sworn into office. Each calendar day displays the date, plus the number of days left." said Lowry. Holidays are also an opportunity to poke fun. On December 15, 2005, (Bill of Rights Day) the calendar quips Bush cannot remember what he did with the Bill of Lefts.
The calendar also provides a look at what the next four years could be like under the Bush Administration. "A lot of us are worried about Bush's plans for the environment, healthcare, Social Security and the war. The calendar provides a humorous view of what Bush might do in his upcoming term." said Lowry. For example, the calendar reads in October, 2005: Bush proposes a new plan to solve the Prescription Drug problem. Instead of allowing Canada to Ship Prescription Drugs to Seniors, he decrees that Seniors shall be shipped to Canada. This also helps solve the Social Security Problem.
"Stephen is more politically active than I am. He was very depressed about the outcome of election. When he mentioned the calendar to me, I said ÂThat sounds like fun, you should go for it!'" says Leilani Lowry, who runs a fitness business out of their home and raises their 18 month old daughter.
"We think this is great therapy for those disheartened over the election, and who are already looking forward to our next election. It also makes a great gag gift for those that supported the president. Everyone should buy one." The calendar is full color, glossy, 11" x 12" and being sold http://www.GWBushCountdown.com for $19.95.
