Irritating All The Right People

Americans left miserable by watching their Presidential candidate lose set up a website titled Sorry Everybody!, in which various pictures have been posted with apologies for George Bush's re-election. As my good friend and colleage Rocket Man notes at Power Line, SE! has to be one of the silliest excuses for Internet traffic in recent memory. Or at least it was, until someone set up Apologies Accepted, where people around the world posted pictures of themselves accepting the regrets of sore losers in the US.

Rocket Man posted a picture of a young woman from Red China professing her love of Blue America, a revealing insight into the kind of people to whom these apologies appeal. (Her smirk certainly must have helped the entry get past the Chinese Internet censors.) Apologies Accepted does provide a service for Americans who want to see the quality of the opposition we face to our policies around the world.

Mistress Kathy either wants to make Bush disappear, or spank him. I'm not sure which one would please her more.

These two Estonians should really coordinate their hair color and clothing better. At least they seem to be the most optimistic of the bunch.

Katrina, we think you're terrorist-ridden because people keep getting kidnapped and killed over there, including several Americans -- and because your government keeps asking for our help in getting rid of them. Oh, and check that tree behind you ...

For some reason, one hell of a lot of these came from the Netherlands. Here's one from a Dutch MP with too much time on his hands.

Is anyone surprised by this?

Finally, this represents the coherence of most submittals, as well as the John Kerry campaign.
