Miss him yet?
Some small business owners in Minnesota made a bit of a splash with a highway billboard emblazoned with a picture of George W. Bush and the question, “Miss me Yet?” While the billboard’s legitimacy was originally questioned throughout the blogosphere, NPR has assured us that the billboard is, indeed, quite real.
What’s most interesting to us about this billboard is simply that the “Miss me yet?” sentiment is the first real George W. Bush T-shirt trend since the heartfelt liberal inaugural farewells and, before that, the infamous Iraqi shoe-throwing incident.
Indeed, it would seem that now that he’s out of office, George W. Bush – so long a source of inspiration for Liberal designers – has finally become a font of inspiration for Conservatives. And as was the case so often in W’s presidency, Cheney’s got a piece of the action himself.
