What, Me Worry?

Alfred E. Neuman's George W. Bush's portrait at the National Portrait Gallery has been unveiled. Squandered goodwill from 9-11, two unjustified wars, lost international moral authority, the Patriot Act, Enron, the betrayal of CIA agent Valerie Plame, corruption of the Justice Department, the abandonment of New Orleans, the Constitution brushed aside, the deepest recession in almost a century... That's just off the top of my head! The legacy goes on and on. But he just sits there, looking quite pleased with himself.

I thought these portraits were commissioned and displayed after a President's term of office. Maybe America is trying to put George W. behind them as fast as possible? Even George is doing his best to stay out of Obama's way...
