Dubya's been painting!





After gaining access to the personal email accounts of Dorthy Bush, George W. Bush's sister, and several friends close to the Bush family, a hacker apparently obtained Bush family photos, cell phone numbers, security codes, information about George H.W. Bush's health, a post-election email from Fox New's Brit Hume, and, most amazingly, pictures of George W. Bush's in-progress paintings, which are just as awkward and simple as you'd hope. All told, six accounts were hacked, including emails for Barbara Bush's brother, family friend Willard Hemingway, and CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz, another friend of the family.

But the truly remarkable parts are the photos. The picture above is obviously excellent, but it's nothing compared to George W. Bush's attempts at painting, pictures of which he apparently emailed to his sister two months ago. The paintings, both self-portraits, are...well, just judge for yourself.

1. The painting he did of Barney was pretty good.

 

Certainly better than anything I could paint. If he did indeed paint it that is.

3. Paint by number. Demonstrable:

So:

To paint, you must be able to draw.

To draw, you must have a brain that works.

I rest my case.

6. Dude is tragic

Tragic for himself. Tragic for the rest of us.

Those bath paintings have a lot of sadness and pathos in them.

11. good

I hope that his mind is never at ease for what he has done. Ever seeing him with a smile on his face is extremely offensive to me. His days should be filled with the same misery and sorrows as mine are for Iraq.

8. His stuff's not bad.

The big thing is that he is doing something other than making problems for the Obama Administration and the country.

Now, if he could just get his brother Jeb interested in painting and staying out of things, I might buy one of the ex-pres's paintings.
