Bob Iger, in defiance of a personal request from a former two-term President of the United States has decided that his 40-million-dollar love note to wingnut America, his cave-in to the Dobsonites, will be broadcast as scheduled. It's an insult not only to President Clinton, the 9/11 families and the truth, it's an insult to the people who elected and re-elected President Clinton.

That last one makes it personal. To 47 million Americans.

This is a defining moment for Disney and while it is important that this travesty be wrapped around Mickey Rat's neck forever - and I mean forever - it also calls for a more personal brand of justice. So I suggest a campaign of harassment so vast, so comprehensive, so personal and so long-term that a new term enters the English language and corporate executives around the world shall henceforth shudder at the thought of being "Igered."

It is time to lay such a hurt on Bob Iger that he, for all his wealth, becomes an object of pity to other executives. I want them to start saying things to each other like, "Whoah, better not go there. Rememeber what happened to Bob Iger."

In short, it is time to create a legend.

I am not advocating that anyone do anything illegal. I don't want his physical safety to ever be threatened. I just don't want that miserable piece of human excrement to be able to walk down a public sidewalk anywhere in the world without someone saying "Fuck you, Bob." For the rest of his life.

I don't want him to be able to eat dinner in a restaurant with his girlfriend without someone saying, "You suck, Bob." For the rest of his life.

I don't want him to be able to show his face in public anywhere, for any reason, not with his girlfriend, not with his wife, not with his kids (if he has any) without being met by boos and catcalls. Every. Single. Day. For the rest of his life.

The damage he has done to America will be lasting. And so should his punishment. Only when the Falwells and the Dobsons have slithered back under the rocks from which they emerged and George Bush, not Bill Clinton, is universally blamed for the security breakdowns that enabled the 9/11 attacks can anyone consider lifting his sentence.

To start with, we need photos of him pasted up all over his neighborhood, wherever that is, so that people recognize him on the street. We need flyers critical of him pasted under windshields, paparazzi out there photographing every embarrassing moment and uploading it to the Internet.

Can someone produce deck of  cards to be sold online with photos of Iger, Scaife, Falwell, Robertson, Dobson and the other un-American bits of human slime that have brought our democracy so near to fascism?

Anyone have any other ideas?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
