Bye Bye Bush

From today's Chronicle:
At Just For Fun, a gift and novelty shop on 24th Street in Noe Valley, Bush dog toys, Smush Bush stress relievers, Bush countdown calendars and "impeach mints" are long gone.

On Thursday night, the anti-Bush merchandise that had done so well for years was down to three copies of "The Bush Survival Guide," a sole copy of "The George W. Bush Quiz Book" and one remaining "Bush-its," or sticky notes for "when you want to say something really stupid."

"He doesn't sell anymore," said store employee David Benson.

Instead, the front window was full of Barack Obama calendars and tall candles depicting him as St. Martin de Porres, with a halo around his head. Those items were going fast, Benson said.
