    No matter what one thinks of Bush, he was as good as gold for comedians and the "internets".

    Some of the most puzzling and comic moments are when he just mugs it... you can sort of see the cogs in his brain slow down to a practical stand still.

    Very much like the Prime Minister I'm paying to hold office here in Canada... the guy with the helmut hair.

    I think my favorite one is: “I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully”

    Be sure to look at Snopes and read the poem, "Make the Pie Higher" - a poem composed of quotes from GW.

    So is it true that Obama only picked Clinton as Sec State as a favor to all the standup comics that had supported his campaign?

    By all accounts Obama is no fun at all, but with Bill lurking in the background waiving his finger... Still, there will never be another GW [I pray].

    I think we should not exclude Bush subordinates like Rumsfeld and the known knowns.

    The big question is: Can he top Dan Quayle?

    Dan Quayle quotes have been resurrected and assigned to whatever current candidate happens to be running in every Presidential election since Quayle left office. In fact, quotes from comedians imitating Quayle have been assigned to candidates in every Presidential election since Quayle left office.

    Come 2012, will we see e-mails quoting Palin as saying, "But oftentimes I'm asked: Why? Why do you care what happens outside of America?" and e-mails quoting Obama as saying, "The only way we can win is to leave before the job is done."

    Or will we see e-mails quoting Palin as saying, "People that are really very weird can get into sensitive positions and have a tremendous impact on history." and Obama as saying, "We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur."

    Or will we just see e-mails quoting Palin as saying, "I can see Russia from my front yard."

    The most disturbing is "I was like a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity."

    Eww, I'm kind of grossed out. :yuck:

    Boy, does that put Palin's comment about the difference between a hockey mom and pitbull into a whole new perspective! :eek:

    There's even a book:

    Some of the reviews listed on the link above are hilarious:

    When I got the the bottom of the page, I was at first a little puzzled by their "If you like this book, we recommend these others":
