George W. Bush Writing Alternate History Sci-Fi Book Where He Knows How To Run A Country

News

Way back when your Comics Curmudgeon went to D.C. to make sure George W. Bush wasn't going to pull off a coup at the last second, he would have never believed that he'd ever say anything nice about the dude, but here we are three years later and here's something nice: George W. Bush has, for the most part, had the good grace to go away. Cheney's only being kept alive by elaborate machinery, and yet he still demands to be wheeled out now and again so he can sneer ominously about something, but George W. Bush, he's mostly been hanging out on the couch of his exurban McMansion, catching up on all the shows he Tivo'd during his presidency. Well, not really, because he watched TV six hours a night when he was president and probably doesn't know how to operate a Tivo, but the important part is that he wasn't all up in our grill, reminding us why we hate him. That winning streak ends today with the announcement that "he's" working on a new book (or maybe he's "working" on a new book?) about how to encourage economic growth, which HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, hold on a minute, we just have to HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, ok let's nope HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

We are actually kind of angry at the New York Times for only spending a single sentence on the most hilarious bit of political comedy to come down the pike in years:

Two months from now, he plans to publish a book outlining strategies for economic growth.

But we presume this article has been carefully placed by George W. Bush's publicist (and there's a fun job) with the intention of "building buzz" for the new book, which will presumably explain carefully how cutting the capital gains tax is the cure for America's ills and that Bush's biggest mistake was not making his tax cuts permanent, etc. Maybe he could get his buddy Bill Clinton to co-write a chapter on how massive banking deregulation can only result in good things for the financial system! Also, look for the parts where Bush explains how it's actually a great that his terms in office saw anemic job growth followed by a spectacular economic cratering.

That fun's all in the future though, and we very much look forward to seeing more details leak out about the book and then finally getting our Wonkette World O' Books review copy, which we will read carefully or maybe just burn for heat in our hobo camp. Meanwhile, the rest of the Times article except for that sentence is really about Bush trying to convince both Obama and Romney to take his advice on foreign policy matters, which HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Poor People Are Mad As Hell, And They're Not Going to Take It Anymore.

The Poor People's Campaign marched on Washington, and we were there!

Culture Wars
by Dominic Gwinn

Yesterday the new Poor People's Campaign, led by Rev. William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, concluded 40 days of protest and civil disobedience with a rally on the National Mall. Building off of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr's original Poor People's Campaign 50 years ago, the new campaign is aimed at uniting labor leaders with activists to build a coalition of all marginalized people

The police have clearly failed to stop the scourge of black kids selling water to thirsty people, so your average law-abiding, permit-respecting white lady has no choice but to take matters into her own (did we mention they were white?) hands. You might call her a busybody gone power mad or a simple tool of racist micoaggression, but we just call her "Permit Patty."
