Bush Derangement Syndrome: 4th of July Fireworks Edition

This morning I woke up, counted all my fingers (somehow they’re all still there), fished the exploded cardboard remnants of some fireworks out of the bottom of the pool, checked my email, and was informed of just about the only kind of firework I didn’t see last night.

From reader Mark:

Came across this little beauty yesterday while perusing fireworks at a stand in Oklahoma: “Ambushed” complete with a picture of W and the subtitle “The 436 billion dollar deficit man.” I was accompanied by my conservative 22 year-old son and 20-year-old daughter, and when I asked the clueless salesperson whether or not they had an alternative that was 4 times larger with Obama’s picture on it all I caught was a cow-eyed stare and the sound of chirping crickets.

Here’s the picture Mark sent:


Presumably from the manufacturer of the George W. Bush toilet.

I’d heard of the Exploding Bin Laden firework, but not “Ambushed.” They have the wrong president’s picture on a firework dedicated to exploding federal deficits these days. There should also be a picture of Congress on there just to make it more appropriate.

By the way, somebody did make an Obama firework — it was called “The Tingler” and a lot of people were all excited and got it, but it ended up being all fuse and no bang, wildly expensive even though the label said it was free, gave off too much smoke and you could only use it on a golf course, so its popularity, like The Tingler itself, fizzled out quickly. Some were also frustrated because in some aspects they couldn’t tell it apart from the Bush firework.
