1. It's hard to tell his "wasted" from "drunk" from "duh" look.
Pickels looks like she just wants to get the hell away. Can't say I blame her... but she didn't have to marry or stay married to the war criminal.

20. Her makeup aside, she looks......... annoyed...... to say the least.
I think she hates him. When they first got in I didn't really get that from her at all. I hated him just as much then as I do now, and I've never cared one fig about her one way or the other so I feel safe in saying that I'm not projecting.

The look I've seen on her face when with him in the last two years is best described as barely contained contempt, excepting a few formal interviews where she's managed to construct fleeting veneers of devotion.

the White House"

31. Right! We watched as the helicopter rose into the sky and I'm sure that was
Bush's first order as ex-president: "Get me a drink! Leave the bottle!" Our entire nation, and the world, deserve a stiff one
before we get back to work cleaning up the mess the Republicans left for all of us.

Who cares what the old boozer does anymore? Dying of alcoholism will probably be the only justice this guy will ever get. Let him drink himself to death and into oblivion.

18. He isn't wasted.
It can be fairly easy to publish photos of people with goofy facial expressions - especially from video stills - because in the process of yawning or reacting or whatever, people look strange. We just don't see it because it's part of a facial movement or process.

As a recovering alcoholic, I think he has pretty solidly distanced himself from compromising everything and ruining his life even more by drinking. It doesn't make sense, and he wouldn't look so healthy and awake so often if this were the case.

26. Bush ALWAYS looks like this
Sure, everyone takes a bad picture now and then, yet I challenge you to find even one picture of George W. Bush where it looks like he's even halfway on the ball.

If you truly are a recovering alcoholic, then you should know that EVERY bit of his bizarre behavior over 8 years can be easily attributed to full-blown alcoholism. There were clearly times (such as at the G-8 Conference, where he tried to give the German Prime Minister a neckrub, and at the Olympics, when he had to be physically helped to his seat by a half-dozen Secret Service agents) that he was barely able to stand.

25. It's only a matter of time before W's liver transplant
and Pickles divorce.

This is really gonna be fun to watch them self destruct and even more fun will be when assholes like Rick Warren go into coverup mode for them.

She'd have vampires running for safety.

39. I love the sound of "Former President George Bush"
It sounds almost as good as "President Barack Obama".
