Just when the image of George Bush is (thankfully) fading from memory
. . . here comes Bush in the bath: self-portraits.
After gaining access to the personal email accounts of Dorothy 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.

5. There is talent...
but I wouldn't call it amazing by any stretch.
It looks to me like someone who had artistic talent at a young age, never pursued it, then picked it up again later on.
It's better than fair.
