Tick, Tick, Tick ...

Georgie say "Relax! ... I only got this much time left."

As of today, our – ahem – leader has 61 days left in office. Ninety-four months down, two little months to go.

I was just in my closet, making things tidy, and spied my good ol' George W. Bush Out of Office Countdown page-a-day calendar (a Christmas gift from L.A. Dave), and thought it was time for another installment of head-shaking, vote-rueing fun. (Not that I voted for the man.)

Here, then, is another smattering of Bushisms for your very much president-mocking pleasure. Do not adjust your brain. There are no typos here:

"I mean, there needs to be a wholesale effort against racial profiling, which is illiterate children."
— Second presidential debate, October 2004

"It's important for us to explain to our nation that life is important. It's not only the life of babies, but it's the life of children living in, you know, the dark dungeons of the Internet."
— Arlington Heights, Illinois, October 2000

"There is a – we've got a homeownership gap in America, let's face it. Over 75 percent of white Americans own their home, and less than 50 percent of Hispanos and African Americans don't own their home. And that's a gap, that's a homeownership gap. And we've got to do something about it."
— Cleveland, Ohio, 2002

"They want the federal government controlling Social Security like it's some kind of federal program."
— St. Charles, Missouri, campaign speech, November 2000

And a guest comment, a Brownism, if you will: "Considering the dire circumstances that we have in New Orleans, virtually a city that has been destroyed, things are going relatively well."
— Former FEMA director Michael D. Brown

And last but not least, this funny little nugget: "Wow! Brazil is big!"
— Upon seeing a map of Brazil at a meeting with the Brazilian president, November 2005

I don't know why, but "Wow! Brazil is big!" has to be one of the funniest things I've ever heard in my life.

I can't wait for him to get the heck out of office.

It made me laugh out loud, too!

Thus making it the post-ender. It's like a cherry on top of a Bushism sundae.
