The Blue Lemur – Progressive Politics and Media News � Mysterious %u2018George W. Bush: Our leader%u2019 Clear Channel political public service billboard graces Orlando freeway
This is rather creepy. Its not the fact that someone decided to put the picture of the President on a billboard. Its the juxtoposition of it with the worlds “Our Leader.”

And that, my friends, is the sad thing.
