Yay or Nay? Is a Countdown Productive?

You've probably seen 2009 Presidential inauguration countdowns in various formats, like the keychain pictured above. While countdown accessories certainly broadcast the opinion of the owner, do you think they add anything useful to the political discussion?

They have t-shirts and calendars, too. Apparently there is a huge market in people that can't wait until this administration has left the White House. I would love one, a t-shirt preferably, so that everyone knows my opinion, and can feel obliged to talk crap for it. I live in Texas, the land of Bush supporters, and find it extremely depressing that so many people back Bush just because he's from here. It's like pull your head outta your rear, and look at the damage him and his administration has caused! Empires fail from within...

Things like that are so pointless. You hate Bush? Fine. He's leaving office, everyone knows that already, and he's keeping a low profile these days so back off. Maybe you send out a signal to like minded people but you also send out a signal to people like myself who just look at you and think that you're a jackass. What makes you figure you could have done a better job? Maybe you should think about that.

It's tacky. Yes because counting down days solves the problems of the world.

I love it; that way you know that you and so-so have the same view of Bush.

I don't think the intention of it is to necessarily rile up intense political debate or discussion. But it's a good way to find similar-minded new acquaintances: "HAHA! Hell yeah! Goodbye Bush!"

I don't think that it's productive or non-productive; I think it's just fun!

Lmao, it is a great conversation starter! I had a government professor who brought his coffee cup every morning, which read '01.20.09' in large type. :rotfl:

Hehe! That's so cute! It would certainly be a good conversation piece, and I'm sure most people would get a kick out of it. Not so much where I live :( but somewhere!
