I have a 'concept' for Jan. 19, 2009
Parties.

Parties EVERYWHERE irrespective of who wins the Presidency. Parties to celebrate the end of an 'era', an 'error', or whatever you would call this nadir of democracy which has been endured for 7+ years now.

Imagine...it could be way bigger than Super Bowl Sunday....just think...what a Gala Event.

We could start the publicity here and the blogosphere would pick it up and run with it. No doubt, someone would give it a really cool name and it would be jsut so embarassing. In August of 1974, when Nixon resigned, it sort of took people by surprise and they were joyous but celebrated rather independently. This time, we can all get together and enjoy a truly wonderful time Universally...I think back to the celebration of the Ewoks when the Death Star was exploded by Han and Luke...jets flying overhead, bands playing, dancing in the streets.

Just a thought on this cold November day...

1. We can start it in Australia and have it circle the globe......
I love the idea. I just got back from 5 days in Germany and France, and believe me, they are ready to have it over with. What saves us is that they, more than our general populace, know our elections were stolen.

2. The GOP will not be campaigning on the end of Busholshevism
....they will be furthering all of the same objectives without mentioning Shrub* if they can ignore him.

The Democrats need to keep bringing Bush up like a bad smell throughout the campaign and reminding the voters that the GOP will just bring on more of the same failures, wars and disasters.

3. True...this has nothing to do with that...
we are making a statement PERSONALLY. This is PERSONAL. Not Political.

4. Oh, well the Ewok celebration came at the end of Episode Six
...and as I recall George Lucas envisioned a total of nine episodes to his Star Wars Epic. That leaves three more which he for no real reason, stopped planning for. I wonder if he found the ultimate conclusion of his vision even too dark for him to contemplate further. I guess we will never know :shrug:

6. If the scripts were as lame as the 'newer' three
I could see why....

Big fan of the first three, however...
