George W. Bush has apparently been painting pictures in his jammies and watching a lot of SpongeBob in recent years. He’s kept a low profile since finishing his second term as president in January 2009.
His sideways-smiling, soulless vice president, Dick Cheney, has been less of a wallflower, popping up to take pot shots at the Obama administration. So has Bush’s evil mastermind, Karl Rove. But Bush has been quiet as a church rat, er, mouse.
Still, he can’t skip his own library event. Bush and his cohorts in creepiness are expected to attend the exclusive invitation-only dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum on April 25 at Southern Methodist University. They will play charades in honor of Bush’s eight-year attempt to imitate a credible leader, and then Rove and Cheney will each perform a puppet show with Bush in his lap. Later, Cheney will accidentally shoot somebody in the face with a cork while opening a bottle of champagne, and Condoleeza Rice will accuse several SMU fraternities of hiding WMDs.
