Would You Throw an End-of-Bush Bash?

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?

Bring on the end of Bush parties, I say! In fact, here's a whole site about it:

i'm never one to be that forward with my political views however i would certainly attend one if given the chance. i think that he went in to a job way way over his head 8 years ago and then messed things up because of assumptions and wrong information, and now we're in such a mess that i'll be happy to see him go.

I think it's a good idea to celebrate the end of Bush's decision making and commandeering this ship. I may have a small party. Main dish, chilled edamame and deep dish pizza.

My birthday is election day . . . I'd love to throw a party like that, but unfortunately it's a school night, and I can't be that tired on Wednesday (or for the rest of the week).

Bourbon with Tabasco sounds good to me, but I don't even want to know the stomach problems that are going to result after too many of those shots. That's going to burn no matter how it comes back out, if you know what I mean.

My wife and I are considering a victory victory party. We are guaranteed a winner since we usually cancel each other out in the voting booth. ;)

I'd rather celebrate a new beginning then an end of something. That's my perspective. I'm trying to get in contact with someone who is throwing an election party.

I agree with Steph, considering everything that is going on I don't think it is time for celebration, especially because Obama (err, whoever wins!) is going to have a lot of serious issues to deal with. I will wait to celebrate once we get out of this recession

It's not offensive, but I'm not into it personally. I'll be bringing political-themed cupcakes to work to celebrate the election.

Regardless of our feelings, that party package is a brilliant business idea!

I don't find it offensive but I won't do it as well. I'm just holding my breath waiting who's going to be voted in for the next one.

I want that party kit! I can't think of a better reason to celebrate. At this point, I truly believe ANYONE is better.

Considering how destructive Bush has been to this country and the world, I do find a party offensive. A prayer vigil maybe.
