UPDATE: Great minds think alike: One of the Internet Blogger Hall-o-Fame greatest stylists and a personal hero of mine, Jurassic Pork also is calling Chimpy’s Lieberry a collection of pop-up books. Also, too: What JP Said.
George W. Bush Library Set to Open at SMU
The Chimpy McStagger reading room…”will preserve for history the important decisions made by President Bush during his presidency and will embody and carry on the values of President and Mrs. Bush.”
I think that’s a long-winded way of saying that there will be an open bar and a pharmacy.
The so-called smart Bush Jeb (married to a notrorious tax cheat, father of an addict, an anger-management candidate, and a third kid who likes to have under-aged sex in public) is proud of his brother, Chimpy whom he says has no opinions.
This might be the first truthful thing a Bush has ever said on record.
…will be awarded to The Smart Bush–you know, the Bush married to the tax evader, with the addict daughter, the anger-management son, and the other son noted for underaged public sex– who will be on all the Sunday Talkies.
Hasn’t Bush crime family done enough to us?
Barney has gone:
Laura and I are sad to announce that our Scottish Terrier, Barney, has passed away. The little fellow had been suffering from lymphoma and after twelve and a half years of life, his body could not fight off the illness.
Barney and I enjoyed the outdoors. He loved to accompany me when I fished for bass at the ranch. He was a fierce armadillo hunter. At Camp David, his favorite activity was chasing golf balls on the chipping green.
Barney guarded the South Lawn entrance of the White House as if he were a Secret Service agent. He wandered the halls of the West Wing looking for treats from his many friends. He starred in Barney Cam and gave the American people Christmas tours of the White House. Barney greeted Queens, Heads of State, and Prime Ministers. He was always polite and never jumped in their laps.
Barney was by my side during our eight years in the White House. He never discussed politics and was always a faithful friend. Laura and I will miss our pal.
My condolences to the Bush family.
Whoopsie! Germany’s Der Spiegel published an obituary Sunday for former U.S. President George H.W. Bush:
In it, the magazine’s New York correspondent described Bush as “a colorless politician” whose image only improved when it was compared to the later presidency of his son, George W. Bush.
“George P. Bush, a nephew of former President George W. Bush and a son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has filed paperwork with the Texas Ethics Commission, seemingly in preparation for a run for local or statewide office.”
This is Jeb’s boy (one of GHWB’s “little brown ones”), the one with anger-management problems. Not the one with the drug issues, or the one who liked to have underaged sex in public.

Chimpy in retirement
Indeed, George W. Bush, now 66, has spent the past few years living as invisibly as possible, working diligently on his golf game at the Brook Hollow Golf Club in Dallas, showing up at a Rangers baseball game, or being spotted eating a steak in one of his favorite restaurants. While the rest of the world judges his years in office, he’s taken up painting, making portraits of dogs and arid Texas landscapes. “I find it stunning that he has the patience to sit and take instruction and paint,” says a former aide.
Why do I imagine Chimpy’s portraits must look like those Keane, big-eyed children pictures? Or maybe clowns? Clowns with big eyes? Wild Turkey bottles with big eyes? Yes, I think that’s it.

From Taegan Goddard’s Political Wire:
Bush Viewed More Favorably Than Romney
Dallas Morning News: “For all the talk about whether Mitt Romney should distance himself from George W. Bush — and the policies of the last GOP White House — a new survey shows that the former president actually has better favorability ratings than the Republican nominee.”
The most recent Bloomberg poll shows Bush with a 46% to 49% favorable rating as compared to Romney’s 43% to 50%.
That’s quite an accomplishment, Willard! How do you plan to celebrate? Oh, that’s right: don’t drink, don’t smoke…
