What if you had one wish concerning George W. Bush?
So you're walking along a beach, pick up a bottle, a genii comes out and gives you one wish regarding Bush. What would it be?

Mine is that he'd be forced to view himself as almost all the sane people in the world see him. That would cause him enough pain to last for an eternity.

What would your wish be?

4. To belong to a different racial designation, to have to earn a living
Without viable health care.

Oh, and to have to do it by himself with poorly funded schools.

That about sums it up for me.

6. That he would be court-martialed for desertion
That he would be recalled to active duty, refitted and put back in a First Lieutenant's uniform, be confined to a military base during his trial and have to have his drug abuse uncovered as the reason he deserted. That he be given a young, incompetent "conservative" first lieutenant as defense council. That he be found guilty and sentenced to 25 years of hard labor at Leavenworth. And that the whole event be televised live.

9. Out of profound guilt for al the hell he has caused,
the genie makes him see what he has done and he flies on Air-Force 1 and turns himself in to The Hague where he testifies against all of his cronies and a newly elected sane US government arrests all of them and sends them along to join b*sh in The Hague to be prosecuted for their crimes. They all receive life in prison.

42. I remember an old Twilight Zone episode
where this used car dealer buys a "haunted" car, which forces him to tell the truth until he can sell it to someone else.

If I can have a second wish, I would hope someone sells him THAT car!!!

37. That his brother had not been elected governor of Florida
Then he almost certainly would not have had the presidency handed to him, and the world wouldn't have had to deal with him.

Of course, a bit of abstinence or birth control (take your pick) on the part of the elder Bushes back in around 1945 would have served even better.

45. That he & his cabal go to prison for the rest of their lives
All his crimes exposed.

Also that his entire family be shamed & shunned, unable to go out in public without being pelted with eggs & jeered at. NEVER will Bush Sr. be interviewed as an honored "senior statesman."

Also that every decision Junior's made, every bill he's signed, be overturned -- and his SCOTUS picks booted out.

The Republican Party is disgraced & scorned forever more.

That should cover it.

54. Wish #2 - to be inundated by floods with no one to help him. To have
a debilitating illness and no health insurance. To have his ugly chimp lips bitch slapped about a million times. To be caught with his sorry pecker out, being serviced by Ol' Jeff Gannon. To have his land in Texas plowed under while they built the NAFTA superhighway. To have his sorry ass thrown out on the front lawn of the WH, for he is a squatter, don't you know. May a close relative's life depend on getting a stem cell implant. May all *'s henchmen go off a thousand mile high cliff and land on the head of the CEO of Halliburton. I could go on ...........
