Less than a year to go until the next presidential election and Mark Morford suggests it's time to begin your personal countdown.
It is less than one year until the country finally takes a deep breath and flexes its atrophied muscles and opens its bloody, Cheney-punched mouth and lets it be known to the world, to the universe, to its own numb and dejected soul just exactly how unwell it has felt, how much pain has raked its heart, lo, these past seven (eight, by then) years, by ushering in an entirely new political era, as we all exhale a massive sigh of long overdue relief that — praise Jesus, Allah, Buddha and the devil all at once — the long national nightmare of George W. Bush is finally over.Some will call it BDS, others a snark-filled pean of hope. It's definitely worth a read.
It is now safe to imagine. It is now becoming increasingly easy to actually dare to think that, in less than one year's time, Dubya will begin packing his bags, jamming into his Spongebob duffel his map of the world coloring book, English-to-English translation dictionaries, mangled pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution, Bibleman action figure set and a "Mission Accomplished!" sweatshirt, and heading off to face his destiny as one of the bleakest, most morally repellent chapters in all of American history.

Update Noel Shephard over at Newsbusters, predictably, gets his outrage on. He calls the SFGate article "unimaginably deranged" and writes "this Bush Derangement Syndrome has gone far enough, and if heads don't roll at the San Francisco Chronicle for this one, something is really wrong in this nation."
Nice, from a guy from a website with ads for t-shirts proclaiming "Re-Defeat Communism 2008" below a pic of Hillary Clinton.
Because it's different if it's Clagina Derangement Syndrome.
