Thirteen beautiful women versus one hideous president.
Babes Against Bush is taking protest politics in an unlikely direction. A new group from southeastern Michigan, B.A.B. is looking to attract attention to a cause–unseating George W. Bush in 2004–and hoping to spur more people to take notice of some basic facts about the Bush Administration by using the venerable, politically incorrect vehicle of the “pinup girl” as the medium for its message.
Why? “Because hot chicks hate him too.”
“What could be more un-American than that election-hijacking, economy-wrecking, war-mongering chimp George W. Bush?” the group asks on its website. “What could be more All-American than thirteen beautiful young women, exercising their first amendment right to thumb their nose at our bozo president?”
The result is the Official Babes Against Bush Regime Change Calendar, which counts off the number of days remaining until “the moving vans pull up to the White House.” Lavishly produced in glossy color, each of the thirteen months’ pages feature one anti-Bush babe as well as well-informed facts and figures detailing the failures and lies of the Bush Administration.

There are also numerous good Bush books out there currently, even beyond the deservedly best-selling troika of Michael Moore, Molly Ivins and Al Franken.
Nation Books‘ new release The Bush Hater’s Handbook: A Guide to the Most Appalling Presidency of the Past 100 Years is a great gift for anyone looking to arm themselves with useful talking points on the Bush Administration as we head into the presidential season.

Nation Washington editor David Corn’s The Lies of George W. Bush: Mastering the Politics of Deception, recently released by Crown Publishers, offers a full account of the falsehoods, fibs and fabrications of the Bush presidency to date. This fact-driven journalistic account is a scorching indictment of a man who claimed he would “restore” honesty to the Oval Office.
