Ironically Named Bush Library Opens!

The George W Bush $250 million library, on the campus of Southern Methodist University  -a school attended by the likes of former first lady Laura Bush, actor Powers Boothe, and Kourtney Kardashian – was formally dedicated Thursday in a ribbon cutting ceremony.

George Bush bathed in the admiration of a friendly crowd and choked up as he finished speaking and wiped tears from his eyes after sitting down.

George W Bush basked in warm praise from President Barack Obama and three fellow former US presidents as Bush’s library was dedicated in a ceremony that emphasized his resolute response to terrorism while skirting controversies such as his decision to invade Iraq.

The Houston Texas library “Think Tank”  is the staging ground for efforts at burnishing George Bush’s legacy, including a policy center that will explore and promote his ideas.

Other exhibits: The Florida 2000 Butterfly Ballot, as well as a living diorama (caged) of the Supreme Court Justices that decided “The Decider” would be the winner.  Also, a solid gold copy of “My Pet Goat” in a glass case, (when Cheney dies, he will be stuffed and placed in an even larger glass case), he gun used by Dick Cheney to shoot Harry Whittington, as well as pieces of Mr. Whittington’s face, an interactive display showing what exposure to white phosphorus does to the human body and prosthetic limbs

“There was a time in my life when I wasn’t likely to be found in a library, much less found one!” Bush (left)  joked.



About kara

We know our letters just fine, and we know our numbers to a certain point, but books were always the realm of four-eyed poindexters with bowler hats and cravats. That’s why it pleases us so that America’s proud illiterates are finally stepping up and pushing back against the crushing tide of education that threatens to swallow us all into its gaping maw of checked facts. Champions of the Ignorantiat will not like it here.
