1. Rick Perry Poses For His Mugshot/Presidential Portrait
Yesterday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry proudly walked through crowds of adoring supporters toward the Travis County Courthouse in Austin, where he turned himself in on felony accusations of abuse of power before smugly posing for his mugshot and triumphantly promising the nation that he would be vindicated. Obviously, this led many to wonder if this signals the end of his presidential ambitions.

Rick Perry's mugshot is the Texas politician's version of young Ray Liotta popping his arrest cherry in Goodfellas. He's a big boy now.— Hank Thompson (@Hank_Thompson) August 20, 2014
2. Laura Bush Realizes The American Dream Of Dumping A Bucket Of Ice Water On George W. Bush's Head
Former President George W. Bush one-upped spoil sport Barack Obama by accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge for which he was nominated by his daughter, Jenna Bush Hager. Well, kind of. His wife Laura actually accepted the challenge on his behalf. Probably in retribution for eight years of forced smiles and dealing with the subtle smell of decay wafting from Dick Cheney at all times:
Guys, George Bush did the ice bucket challenge, so everyone else can stop now, it's officially not cool anymore.— Sarah (@thetigersez) August 20, 2014
