Things I have given up during the Bush administration because they seemed "inappropriate"

--Hope
--Optimism
--My formerly sunny disposition


UPDATE: In retrospect, I should have linked to this interview with Bush for context, in which he tells of his decision to give up golf:
"I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf," he said. "I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal."

Yes, it's golf that's sending the wrong signal.

Keep those on hold - you may be wanting them again in a few months. I refuse to consider that things may get worse instead of better. LalalalaIamnotlisteninglalala.

Just think of the Bush administration as a kind of extended Lent remix... as soon as it's over, you can go back to enjoying the best things in life.

Too bad about Bush and golf -- I thought the very best moment in Farenheit 9/11 was when Moore showed Bush giving an interview when practing golf, and immediately after his "serious" statement, told the reports to look at "this" -- and demonstrated his golf swing. Instead of taking statements out of context, Moore put them "in" context, by showing what happened after the official statement ended.
