With a new administration and a new vision coming to the White House, we have the opportunity to move boldly to restore the moral authority behind the worldwide human rights movement. But the first steps must be taken at home.

Sorry Everybody?

I don’t know how many of you remember Sorry Everybody.

Sorry Everybody was a website that launched immediately after the 2004 re-election of George W. Bush. People took photographs of themselves holding up apologies to the world for putting the guy back in office.

I seem to recall their being a site dedicated to those Americans who had not voted for Bush, a sort of “We forgive you” from the rest of the world, or a “We’re sorry, too.” I can’t find it, but if I do, I’ll put it up here. [It’s called Apologies Accepted. [HT to Wearer of Hats for the link]]

There’s an epilogue of sorts up now, at the original site – Hello Everybody.

And now…Now there’s this:

Thanks, Americans!

Am I proud? Damn straight I am.

Yes, we did!
