AS SEEN ON TV: GEORGE W. BUSH

Here we are on the last Sunday before Barack Obama's inauguration as the 44th President of the United States!

Ahhhh, Sunday.... A day of rest. A day when not many people will be checking out my blog, having far more important and relaxing things to do. (Actually, not much different from any other day of the week.) Whatever I post today will pretty much be ignored....

So what better time than today to post a picture of Obama's predecessor in the Oval Office, George W. Bush.

Here's a picture of the Shrub as he looked in 'That's My Bush!', the sitcom by the brains behind 'South Park'. The show came out during Bush's first year in office on Comedy Central, and was a spoof more on the cliches and conventions of the sitcom using Bush as the focal point. They portrayed him more as the stumbling bumbling father figure that had been a staple of sitcoms from Stu Erwin to Homer Simpson.... Who knew he'd turn out to be far worse?

Timothy Bottoms played Bush again in a more serious vein for a TV movie about 9/11, but hopefully this will be the image that remains in people's memories.

The sitcom was yanked soon after 9/11, and finally Bush will be as well.

BCnU!
