WiFi (Networks) Against Bush

WiFi Against Bush is an interesting twist on viral marketing aimed at our neighborhoods and the occassional warchalker — let everyone in within range of your router know what you _really_ think of the President.

Way to stick it to The Man!

I know Dubya is crying into his pillow in the Lincoln Bedroom, crying out, "Why don't they like meeeee?!"

My router has been setup for a long time now with an anti-Bush name. I'm sure the 3 or so people around me in my building with wi-fi sniffers have all seen it.

Filed under: the absolute least possible anyone can do to change anything in the world. See also, protest posters in virtual worlds.

Why not just rename your router "Please Sniff Passwords from my Bleeding Liberal Heart wifi point"?

Great idea. But, oh my God, what if the other side got access to this technology?! They could use it for evil!

Shelby: We just got word there's Springfield kids in town.
[all the kids growl]
Bart: Curse those handsome devils!
Shelby: We're going up to the bluffs to paint "Springfield sucks" in huge letters. That way, whenever they look into Shelbyville, they will realize that they suck.
Milhouse2: Ho ho, radical!

Whoa...how on earth will the President's re-election campaign ever overcome this insurmountable obstacle?

And what mathowie said.
