ONE BUSH IN THE BATH IS WORTH TWO IN THE HAND



Could these be the naked self-portraits of the 43rd president of the United States, George "Dubya" Bush?  That's the question posed by a series of photos recently released on The Smoking Gun.  Hackers allegedly infiltrated the email account of Bush's sister Dorothy and scored a trove of revealing photographs, including two self-portraits and a snapshot of the president painting while on vacation in Maine.


If you're still in doubt, let the portrait of Bush's dog Barney below officially put your mind at ease.  The former President posted the painting to his Facebook page shortly after Barney's death earlier this year.  Look closely.  He even signs it "43".

  2. Hi Colby. Scott at BIE sent me. I was rather surprised that Dubya turns out to be a good artist. As has been pointed out elsewhere, Hitler was also a painter. The difference is that Hitler went to art school and failed. Dubya is completely self-taught, is a really decent artist and a complete failure as a leader. I think Will go it right. If only, indeed.
