Sorry Everybody
An Apology to the World for the Re-election of George W. Bush
foreword by Ted Rall


An open letter of apology from America to the rest of the world.

Some of us - hopefully most of us - are trying to understand and appreciate the effect our recent election will have on you, the citizens of the rest of the world. As our so-called leaders redouble their efforts to screw you over, please remember that some of us - hopefully most of us - are truly, truly sorry. And we´ll say we´re sorry, even on the behalf of the ones who aren´t.


So writes James Zetlen, neuroscience student at University of Southern California and the mastermind behind sorryeverybody.com, the Web site that became the water cooler around which people gathered to share their collective grief about the results of the 2004 Presidential election.

The entries speak for themselves:

“49% of us didn’t vote for him.”

“Yo soy apesadumbrado, muy muy apesadumbrado!”

“I’m not sure how
or why it happened.
I thought our country was literate.
I’m rather ashamed of the 51%.
Honestly.
49% of us will fix it.”
-Baffled in Montana


“Half of Ohio is really, really sorry Don’t hate us.”

“EVERYBODY WE ARE SO SORRY!! IN MINNESOTA WE TRIED SO VERY HARD!”


About the Author

Twenty-year-old University of Southern California college student James Zetlen launched sorryeverybody.com on November 4, as an outlet for Americans to express their disappointment (and, sometimes, outrage) about the political situation in our country and how it will affect people around the world for the next four years. To date, more than 26,000 people have uploaded their thoughts, images,and opinions onto the site. Sorryeverybody.com has become a phenomenon, receiving more than 75 million hits each day from people around the world. After announcing the book project on the site, Zetlen reported receiving more than 700 comments in just a few hours.

The $14.95, 256-page sorry everybody: an apology to the world for the re-election of George W. Bush book will be in stores in time for the inauguration and will feature images that reflect the apologetic and frustrated feelings of many Americans after the election.

“I started this Web site because I wanted to apologize for not doing enough for the election and asked people to share their thoughts along with mine,” says Zetlen. “It was a way for Americans to release their frustration and to tell the world how truly sorry they were for the outcome of the election. The world needs to understand that there are people in America who donÕt like what our government is doing. And from the mail we’re receiving, there are people in the international community who appreciate this,” says Zetlen. Now readers will be able to flip through the pages of sorry everybody and read some of America’s reaction to what will likely go down in history as a landmark election.

I knew the day was going along too well.

Hi, Scimitar!!

I remember when I first found out about that website. It seemed to be shortly after the election, and just seeing the people´s faces, and reading their messages reinforced the feelings of hope I still have for our country and the world community.

Everyone does want the same thing, Scimitar, including peace on earth.

Yes, sir. Seems that thread was deleted. Did you know there are guardian angles everywhere??

sorryeverybody.com was a great site until they came out with the book. Now the images aren´t as easily accessed, seems they want you to buy the book instead. Great concept though. You can just look in the eyes of those people and see, not all Americans agree with the current administrations policies.

And in case you missed it, there has already been thousands of similar images posted at werenotafraid.com in the wake of the London bombings-

>"I´ve been struggling with how America will explain this time in history to the rest of the world and our children and our grandchildren."

About 9-11, you can simply say that WTC-building number seven was not hit by a plane and still collapsed within 8 seconds in a perfect way. It´s a fucking miracle !

About the Iraq war, you can simply explain to them that a couple of weeks BEFORE the invasion started, a poll showed up that an amazing 62 % of the American People didn´t want to go to war without a (second) resolution from the U.N. (which would allow this war to be legal in accordance with international laws).

And about the re-election, simply tell your (grand)children that the voting system (especially in Ohio) was corrupt.

But you know, and to be frank, there are more important things to have a struggle about. I (as a member of ´the rest of the world´) am more angry because every month again, more than 500.000 people around the world are dying because of hunger or poverty. And to be explicitly frank, i am even more angry because this beautifull planet is been raped up at a massive scale. I do not blame people for those mistakes, but simply a system of greed (for the few).

Bye.
