Is he gone yet?

In case I don't share with you on Google Reader, here's a fun little thing I found this afternoon. And by "fun," I mean "disgusting."

Yep, it's tomorrow. January 18th.

Apparently, Sanctity of Human Life Day has been around since 1984 thanks to Reagan, but presidents get to declare it every year if they want. (Clinton declined throughout his 8 years, but Bush is all about it.)

According to the proclamation:

“The most basic duty of government is to protect the life of the innocent. My administration has been committed to building a culture of life by vigorously promoting adoption and parental notification laws, opposing federal funding for abortions overseas, encouraging teen abstinence and funding crisis pregnancy programs.”

Lovely. Here are a few different things I think we should call it:

National Fuck Women's Rights Day
I Will Shove My Politics Up Your Ass Until My Last Day Day
Maybe Someday We Can Knock Back Women's Rights so They're on Par with the Gays Day
Create More Criminals Day


Take That, Nancy Pelosi Day
Remember, "Human Life" Doesn't Include Guantanamo Bay Day
I've Got Your Back, Bristol Day
I'm Just Doing What Cheney Told Me To (Again) Day

And some more that I really wish I could take credit for:

Celebrate the Consequences of Your Rape Day
I Can Count on You Right Wingers to Not Hate Me for Sucking as a President, Right? Day
Women are Essentially Breeding Machines Day
National Morbid Irony Day
Sanctimonious Life Day
All Your Uteruses [Uteri?] Are Belonging to Us Day

Anyone else?

He thinks his administration is all about protecting life?! What a hypocrite! So his overseas war in Iraq is protecting whom exactly? Or forcing abstinence programs down everyone's throat both domestically and internationally?! The man sickens me. Tuesday can't come fast enough.

Literally LOLed at "I Got Your Back, Bristol" day. How about a simple "No One is Listening To Me Anymore Anyway" Day?

Ok, but the following day can we have a National "A Family Who Prays Together Stays Together Day" day?
