thanks alot. have a good w/e. FROM THE ORIGINAL "CALIFORNIA DREAMING" ALERT
By Jerry Pries, Online Journal
...So, in memory of both John Phillips and my friend -- who, I believe, would almost certainly disagree with my opposition to Bush but would also, I choose to believe, think this a hilarious prank -- I propose that we 'lighten up' a little and show our disgust with the current occupant of the White House, George W. Bush, in a very 60s way.
With apologies to Norman Mailer, who uttered the original idea 36 years ago in a speech against President Lyndon Johnson, I propose that we wallpaper the country by sticking little pictures of George W. Bush, "pictures the size of post cards, the size of stamps... to walls and posters and telephone booths and billboards... -- upside down."
Let's warn Bush, just as Mailer warned Johnson: "Silently, without a word, the photograph of you," George W. Bush, "will start appearing everywhere, upside down. Your head will speak out... it will say that not all Americans are unaware of your monstrous vanity, overweening piety, and doubtful motive. It will tell them that we trust our president so little, and think so little of him, that we see his picture everywhere upside down."
So, smile and grab a picture of Bush from the Internet -- there's a good one at georgewbush.com. Flip it upside down.
