A proper send-off

by Jennifer on January 15, 2009

The creators of New York Times Bestseller Goodnight Bush sent me an email this afternoon to let me know about their latest project. The authors, Erich Origen and Gan Golan, have applied their satirical genius to another send-off for our current – and almost outta here – president.

The result is brilliant, sobering, and hilarious.

Here’s what they say about it…and then go take a look:

PRESIDENTIAL THEME PARK: THE GEORGE W. BUSH PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARIUM

Forget the Presidential Library!

First, why make a library to honor a guy who does not even read books? Second, libraries are an attempt to preserve facts and history – and we know that the Bush administration cannot be trusted with either. So, in order to further the effort to bring historical clarity to the last 8 years, and support the ongoing demand for accountability that must accompany it, we are offering the public an alternative to the official Presidential Library planned for Dallas, Texas.

We present to you the George W. Bush presidential Librarium!

Reading about Bush’s remarkable achievements might not exactly be family fare, so we’ve done away with all those pesky little books, and have replaced them with themed attractions that bring this administration’s remarkable legacy to life. So, leave your foreclosed home behind, pack the family into your most fuel-inefficient vehicle, and come on down to the place “where wings take dream”!

History starts here. The only question: Are you with us or against us?

(For the record, they didn’t ask me to post the link, or to write about their book. I just think they’re awesome. I’d use a word that’s more hip than that, but I don’t know any.)

That is HILARIOUS! My husband and I were just reading Goodnight Bush in our local bookstore the other night. Yes, Jennifer, we actually got out on a date.

I’m all for just pretending he never existed. If we ignore him, he’s sure to go away, right?

It’s a kinder wrap-up of his presidency than he deserves. Seriously.

Awesome! Something tells me the jokes won’t go away just because he does.

Since I couldn’t decide whether I was more excited about Obama being inaugurated or Bush flying the eff outta the White House, I know I’m gonna be visiting this link.
