George W. Bush.
Yes, I’m sorry to bring this up but he’s just opened a library. Apparently, he turned up at the Dallas Central Library thinking it was a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
What is it with former American Presidents and this desire to be immortalised by books, papers, artefacts and souvenirs purloined from flights on Air Force One? This library will have a grand display of Barneyabelia including this Barneybust to commemorate the great Armadillo hunter. Given that Dubya’s library will have more of Barney’s toys than it will of Dubya’s books it might actually be an interesting place to visit.
Like all great statesmen it is fitting that we remember some of Dubya’s many famous quotes:
“They misunderestimated me.” –Bentonville, Ark., Nov. 6, 2000
“I wish you’d have given me this written question ahead of time so I could plan for it…I’m sure something will pop into my head here in the midst of this press conference, with all the pressure of trying to come up with answer, but it hadn’t yet…I don’t want to sound like I have made no mistakes. I’m confident I have. I just haven’t — you just put me under the spot here, and maybe I’m not as quick on my feet as I should be in coming up with one.” –after being asked to name the biggest mistake he had made, Washington, D.C., April 3, 2004
“I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.”
“The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him.”
“Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren’t able to practice their love with women all across this country.”
“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”
Finally, I have absolutely no idea what was going on here, but none of this fun would have been possible if either someone had been brave enough to give him a blowjob so he could be impeached, or if Barney had let him choke on that pretzel.
