Earlier today, a friend of mine indicated on Facebook that she likes her wife’s status, that latter having signed up for a rather mature group calling on people to “Subversively move George W. Bush’s memoir to crime section in book shops”. What grown-ups!
Now, I should note that I have the profoundest respect for these two women, indeed, it was seeing them together on the eve of the 2008 election that ended my wavering on Prop 8. I had been so offended by the nasty tone of the Prop 8 opponents that I had considered leaving the ballot measure blank. But, aware of their relationship, I realized that some same-sex couples who sought state recognition of their relationships as marriages understood what marriage meant. I voted, “No.”
That said, through this post, let me ask (in a slightly revised manner) the question, I asked in my Facebook comment, “How would you react if conservatives organized the same scheme for the book by a prominent Democrat?”
What this Facebook group shows is that nearly two years this good man, but flawed chief executive left office, some on the left can’t let go of him. He’s gone, fellas, and ain’t coming back — and has had the decency to refrain from criticizing his successor — or otherwise interjecting himself into the political arena.
Those still obsessed with George W. Bush should do themselves a favor — and, to borrow an expression, just move on. He sure has.
