On January 20th, Americans and the world will celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama. But perhaps equally important, because Barack's legacy has yet to be written, on January 19th George W. Bush will spend his last full day in the White House. With the brilliant act of the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at W out of shear frustration and anger, the world has been shown the way to say a fitting farewell to George the Second and his incredible Reign of Error (special thanks to Robin Williams!).
Just picture if a million of the estimated 3-4 million people who will attend Barack's inauguration were to bring with them a pair of usable shoes and throw in a giant pile somewhere near the White House. With this massive pile of shoes, we would send a message to George and the rest of the world that this is not only a celebration of Barack's inauguration, but a massive display of disgust at Bush's term in office, and a salute to the hopes for the future. When we are done, a million pairs of perfectly good shoes can go to the poor, the homeless, the former 401K holders, and the future recipients of the bankrupt social security system, as they are all a part of the Bush legacy.
Support the Million Shoe March! Join the George W. Bush Sole Train! Even a lame duck like George can't duck a million pairs of shoes!
