1. George W. Bush went on TV to show off his paintings. With an exhibit of his paintings of world leaders opening at his library, former President Bush doesn't seem so much ready to stage a political comeback as a fun grandpa comeback. His post-White House hobby of painting pets and politicians has been just the weird ticket to distract us from our memories of him as the Worst President Ever. Even as you read these words, dozens of commenters are rushing to his defense with messages of "Lay off him!" and "He's so cute now!" Guys, just before we got rid of this clown, his approval rating hit a rock-bottom low of 25%. 25%! There's a reason for that! Not even that many people hate Obama. Let's not get distracted by the fact that he's gotten better at painting in his blessed retirement.
