If you thought George W. Bush should have stayed in hiding, DC Mic Check Cartoonist in Chief Mike Flugennock is on your side. Only the mainstream media, with some help from President Obama, could rehabilitate the image of this Scottish terrier-painting convicted war criminal.

So we know President Bush the man. And what President Clinton said is absolutely true: to know the man is to like the man, because he’s comfortable in his own skin. He knows who he is. He doesn’t put on any pretenses. He takes his job seriously, but he doesn’t take himself too seriously. He is a good man.

Y’know the worst thing about this wretched speech? He’s paraphrasing Bill Clinton, f’cripesake.

They’d hardly had time to catch their breath after canonizing Margaret Thatcher before it was on to their toughest challenge ever–refurbishing George W. “The Decider” Bush.

  1. michael gerson, a good Christian Man, says he’s principled. Gerson can write complete sentences (and as a good christian, my impression he helped author the various hate speeches involved in G W Bush campaigns). I wonder if principled means getting called to the principals office—then i’m principled too.
    i see chelsea clinton has managed to apply her ivy education—that is deep, conducting interviews. Einstein only could be an artists model.
