2008 started off in the Pacific Northwest with the blue screen of erectile dysfunction when a software glitch caused the fireworks show at the Seattle space needle to put on a pathetic display of the classic difference between a feature and a bug. Maybe they should pass out t-shirts.
Probably the most amusing part of it all is the inevitable whining and complaining that accompanies such a disappointing display of wasted manhood. It's just so Seattle to whine insignificantly about things. I tend more toward it was a sucky year for a lot of people and as 2007 skulked away in shame, 2008 is still appalled at how bad things were for so many that it's reluctant to step in and take over properly.
And speaking of skulking away in shame, if they were capable of such a human emotion, only twelve more months until Bush and Cheney leave the residences they have permanently soiled. They'll probably sneak out in the middle of the night like the thieves they are and history will remember them as.
A computer "glitch" brought them into power and another one will herald the year of their departure.
