Farewell, so long, auf wiedersehen, goodbye.

A photo and a lyrical tribute for the Crawford Cowboy, now shufflin' off to the dustbin of history, a place of his own choosing.

You suck my blood like a leech
You break the law and you preach
Screw my brain till it hurts
You've taken all my money
And you want more
Misguided old mule
With your pigheaded rules
With your narrow-minded cronies
Who are fools of the first division...
Bad guy
Big talking
Small fry...
Is your conscience all right?
Does it plague you at night?
Do you feel good?

You talk like a big business tycoon
You're just a hot air balloon
So no one gives you a damn
You're just an overgrown schoolboy...
A dog with disease
You're the king of the sleaze
Should be put inside
You're a sewer rat
Decaying in a cesspool of pride
Should be made unemployed
Make yourself null and void
Make me feel good
I feel good.

- Queen, "Death On Two Legs"

And how about a nice video retrospective, narrated by Rachel Maddow?

And finally, a song from the aptly named All American Rejects:

So long, George.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
