There are political parties — and then there are political parties. This Georgie Is Outta Here party box is decidedly the latter. Complete with all of the goodies you'd need for a party — cups, balloons, Dick Cheney party hats, a Pin the Tail game of questionable taste, it's all there. The site has a pretty amusing video of the contents of the box in action, just so you can see exactly what you're getting.
Who would throw this kind of party? I asked one of my decidedly not-Republican friends (I'm very tolerant) his thoughts on his hopes for pending political celebrations. "Well, first there is election night party — we're making shots for each swing state called. Something blue, fruity, and yummy for an Obama win and something strong and red for a McCain win, like bourbon with Tabasco." (My response: "ew.")
So why a party for Bush leaving in January? "It's to celebrate a catharsis of turning the page on George W. Bush. Usually, any small reason to throw a party is good enough, but in this case, I think we are all so giddy and ecstatic to have Bush finally out of office, it will be a very, very big bash. After two very disappointing, almost soul-crushing lost elections, with the years in between as bad as we'd hope to ever see, the end should be a party with everyone in high spirits."
What do you think? Would you have an end-of-Bush bash? Do you have big plans for election night?
