As the new president channeled Bane during his inaugural address, cameras caught the nation's last Republican leader, George W. Bush, acting like a lovable buffoon. A lack of power will do that to you, transform you from a hated buffoon to a lovable one. Anyway, he got all tangled up in a poncho.
Imagine a time, 17 years from now, when Twitter can collectively laugh and say "legend" at former President Trump's goofy antics in the crowd. Too unfathomable? Okay, stick with W.

Rain starts to fall as Trump delivers inauguration speech. Distracting to see George Bush reach for a plastic poncho.— Lucy Fisher (@LOS_Fisher) January 20, 2017
Oh Lucy, how right you were.

Dick Cheney! Now don't tell me Twitter's relegated Cheney to the role of lovable Bush's "haha" sidekick. That's too much. Then again, he's wearing a fun hat... No. It's too much. There's only so many architects of the Iraq War you can LOL at on Twitter at a time.
For now, it's enough to find some humor in 43 finding his nemesis in a raincoat. You'd get a beer with this guy, right?
