We almost forgot!

President Bush turns 61.

Published July 6, 2007 9:33PM (EDT)

We feel like such heels: here it is almost 6 EST, and we just now realized that we almost forgot about the significance of today -- it's George W. Bush's 61st birthday!

Fortunately, if you're like us and neglected to get that card in the mail early enough for it to have arrived today, the GOP has a solution. You can sign their e-card here. According to e-mails sent to their mailing lists, "To make this an extra special birthday on July 6, Mrs. Bush will be presenting our President with this birthday wish from supporters like you."

And if you just so happen to want to make a donation to the Republican National Committee while you're at it, well, they've been nice enough to provide a sizable donation form before getting you to the e-card signature itself. Now if only they'd make a form like this for our dear Aunt Gladys' next birthday.
