Free at last

So, Bush is gone. Finally. I had a discussion the other day with my father where I suggested that Bush was the least popular person in world history. He said no, Hitler, and for intensity of hatred, I’m sure that’s the case. But when Hitler died, I expect half the world hadn’t heard of him or knew him only tangentially. The world’s population was already centered in eastern Asia, and in China, Indochina, and Indonesia it was the Japanese, not the Germans, who were the enemy. Everyone knows Bush, and basically everyone hates him. (The only places that don’t hate him are in Sub-Saharan Africa, and even there they’re excited more about the new guy, for pretty obvious reasons.) Moreover, the world population is triple or quadruple what it was in 1945, so there are a lot more people to hate Bush.
