New Job for Bush

New Job for Bush

You may be out of work, but George W. Bush has a new job. The former president is using his legendary oratorical skills to forge a new career, Mike Allen reported in Politico. After hearing the news, David Letterman’s writers required oxygen.

Mr. Bush is booked to give ten speeches this year in Canada, the U.S., Europe, and Asia. He is represented by the Washington Speakers Bureau. The agency’s motto: “Inspiration from the World’s Greatest Minds.” Really.

We have not been able to determine if audience members at the Bush lectures will be required to remove their shoes. If so, perhaps off-duty TSA airport guards could arrange the logistics.

We are disappointed that Mr. Bush is not taking our advice and using his love for “clearing brush” to enhance the historical legacy of his presidency. Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen, Texas is only 60 miles from the Bush Ranch. George W. Bush introduced thousands of young Americans to such facilities; a job as caretaker would give him daily opportunities to admire his handiwork.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for so eloquently and succinctly expressing what so many of us are thinking! Your final para was particularly on-point. Wish we could be sure W would see it. Probably wouldn’t make much of an impact on his tiny, tinny brain.
