After allegations of cash for questions, expenses fiddling and a history of postal voting irregularities, the UN has appointed former President George W Bush as Election Observer for the 2010 UK General Election.
ANORAK has been browsing the White House: “Fact Sheet: Ensuring a Smooth and Effective Presidential Transition.”
While Barack Obama uses his 30-minute long infomercial to advertise himself and the O-thimaster from Obama Solutions Inc. and new device for fat-free cooking, his staffers plan for the big move.
The directive goes…
Today, the Transition Coordinating Council (TCC) will meet for the second time, continuing the Administration’s comprehensive transition efforts. The peaceful transfer of power from one Presidential Administration to the next is a hallmark of American democracy.
GEORGE Bush, so longer – you’ll miss him when he’s gone…
THE news coin to celebrate the life and times of George Dubya Bush…
Now I would like to enter these treacherous waters again and venture another prediction: within a year of the day he leaves office, and no matter who succeeds him, George W. Bush will be a popular public figure, regarded with affection and a little nostalgia even by those who voted against him and thought he was the worst president in our history.
Does anyone really dislike George Bush the person, or just disagree with what he represents? He’s hard not to like…
Meanwhile, does anyone like Tony Blair, the worthy, humble, vain, greedy religion-on-his sleeve, pleasing, warmongering, creepy, grinning hero of the once bereft Left? Maybe when he goes, we will.
“IT’S time to go now, George. They’re here, George. George… It’s time…”

SPARE any change for the assassination of George Bush? It’s the George Bush Death Cult.
Every President and would-be President needs one…
Brand has got his big break. What will risqué, outrageous, cray-zee Russell do? And note that the man whose style he apes began a show in Canada with “Hell Moose-f*****s” and a gig for anti-racism with “Nelson Mandela… What a ****!”
Says Russell Brand:
“Please, America, elect Barack Obama. On behalf of the world.”

SAYS Barack Obama on the surge in Iraq he opposed:
“I think that the surge has succeeded in ways that nobody anticipated,” Obama said while refusing to retract his initial opposition to the surge. “I’ve already said it’s succeeded beyond our wildest dreams.”

SAYS Pam in the comments:
Well, there’s the little matter of a hurricane mop-up to attend to and, um, the fact that he’s pretty much the most unpopular president in history.
As for the vice-babe, to date she has not shot any member of her own party. This puts her well ahead of the current VP–by twice, I think.
Sarah Palin – hard not to like
ANORAK remembers when the Guardian tried to influence voters in the US or A who were too darn stooped to work out that George Bush was going to kill them all with his weather machine.
On August 26th, George Bush announces that September is National Preparedness Month:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 2008 as National Preparedness Month.
GEORGE Bush and John McCain in Mexican, pornographic sex encounter.
Mark Fraunefelder says: “Ethan Persoff (the fellow who is covering the riot police at the DNC) has printed a special edition of his (X-rated) McCain “Tijuana Bible” to hand out to folks at the convention.
Uncivil Society reports:
Any complete account of the evolution of communications media in the twentieth century must include the Tijuana Bible — small pornographic comics featuring bootleg versions of popular comic strips and celebrities….
In Denver this week, delegates to the Democratic National Convention will have the opportunity to get printed versions of this Bush-McCain Tijuana Bible, presented as a replica of a prophetic 1934 comic from Lieberman’s Lil’ Squeezer Books. Whatever one’s moral stance regarding porn & politics, it’s a rather clever piece of neo-retro performance art.

Peter Bradshaw is reviewing a film for the Guardian: It’s called: Zero: An Investigation Into 9/11
WE’LL miss George Bush:
The American beach volleyball team of Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor defeated the Chinese team of Jie Wang and Jia Tian 2-0 to complete a perfect Olympic tournament and win their second consecutive gold medal.
Interviewed immediately afterward, Walsh asked if she could say something, then looked straight at the camera and said, “Mr. President, thank you for your inspiration. Thank you for all you do.”
And I thought that everyone hated George Bush. That’s what the media and the Democrats keep telling me.
You’ll miss him when he’s gone…
IN 2000, the world read: Baldwins ready to quit America if Bush is elected”
Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger say they will leave America if George W Bush is elected President. Asked if she’d move with him, Basinger said: “I can very well imagine that Alec makes good on his threat. And then I’d probably have to go too.”
President Bush lives in the White House. Alec Baldwin no long lives with Kim Basinger, but they do both live in the US of A.
Stephen Baldwin, a born-again Christian and brother of Alec, whose most recent “role” was an apprearance on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that he will leave the country if Barack Obama becomes the next president …
Better luck this time…
GEORGE Bush Lol medal…
GEORGE Bush. The $10 coin. How long until we look back on his tenure as the good times?
RUSS Limbaugh – him again – is in conversation with George Bush:
RUSH: What are…? (interruption) Interrupting for what?
THE PRESIDENT: Hello!
RUSH: Oh, jeez. The president?
THE PRESIDENT: Rush Limbaugh?
RUSH: Yes, sir, Mr. President.
THE PRESIDENT: President George W. Bush calling to congratulate you on 20 years of important and excellent broadcasting.
RUSH: Well, thank you, sir. You’ve stunned me! (laughing) I’m shocked. But thank you so much.
THE PRESIDENT: That’s hard to do.
RUSH: (laughing) I know, it is.
THE PRESIDENT: I’m here with a room full of admirers. There are two others that would like to speak to you and congratulate you, people who consider you friends and really appreciate the contribution you’ve made.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much. Put ‘em on.
THE PRESIDENT: How you doing? This is my swan song? If this is all you got for me, I’m moving on.
RUSH: (laughing) No! The show’s yours; take as much time as you want.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I’m just calling along with President 41 and the former governor of Florida. We’re fixing to have lunch here, and I said, “Listen, we ought to call our pal and let him know that we care” for you. So this is as much as anything, a nice verbal letter to a guy we really care for.
RUSH: Well, thank you, sir, very much. I’m overwhelmed. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this and how much you’ve surprised me.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, that was the purpose of the phone call.
RUSH: You succeeded.
THE PRESIDENT: Good.
Ring! Ring! It’s Euan Blair on line one…
In January, Bush will be history, leaving liberals all alone in a frightening world. Little else will change. Radical Islam will still authorise murder without limit, Iran will still want the bomb and the autocracies of China and Russia will still be growing in wealth and confidence. All those who argued that the ‘root cause’ of the Bush administration lay behind the terror will find that the terror still flourishes when the root cause has retired.
SOAP firm Scrubya donates 75 percent of its proceeds to nonprofit organisations dedicated to “cleaning up the mess” it blames on George Bush.
Time to come John McClean, or scrub up with Soapbama.
AL Gore, current US Vice President, leader of the Al Goreans, global warming expert, champion of alternative fuels and educator of the ignorant is pictured here with then President Bill Clinton at the apogee of their political double act.
The numbers indicate the price of petrol, showing that when Gore was in power, petrol was cheap and gas-guzzlers affordable.
Which of Gore and Bush is the planet’s friend?
Note: The picture was meant to show how Bush has been bad for the US economy…

A GROUP in San Francisco want a lasting memorial to George W. Bush. Condoleezza Rice has a ship – or not:
Reagan has his highways. Lincoln has his memorial. Washington has the capital, and a state, too. But President George W. Bush may soon be the sole president to have a memorial named after him that you can contribute to from the bathroom.

Michelle Malkin has a round-up…
FRANK Rich on how to string a sentence together:
“Top Bush hands are starting to get sweaty about where they left their fingerprints. Scapegoating the rotten apples at the bottom of the military’s barrel may not be a slam-dunk escape route from accountability anymore” -Frank Rich, New York Times, July 13
