Worst Video Game Ever. Figures.

Peter Baker, "Rewinding History, Bush Museum Lets You Decide". April 20

UNIVERSITY PARK, Tex. — More than four years after leaving office, former President George W. Bush has a question for America: So what would you have done? 
In a new brick-and-limestone museum, visitors to an interactive theater will be presented with the stark choices that confronted the nation’s 43rd president: invade Iraq or leave Saddam Hussein in power? Deploy federal troops after Hurricane Katrina or rely on local forces? Bail out Wall Street or let the banks fail?

• Cruise through Yale as a drunken frat boy, or sober up long enough to take notice of the world's intellectual traditions?

• Attend all your required Texas Air National Guard duties, or call in sick?

• McDonald's coffee spoon or rolled-up hundred?

• Hit up daddy's pals for business investments, or hit up daddy's pals for business investments?

• Use your insider knowledge to get out from under Harken Oil just before the stock collapses and buy the Texas Rangers, or the Baltimore Colts?

• Build a new stadium with taxpayer money, or move the team to some other city that's built a new stadium with taxpayer money?

• Realize a 1242% profit when the team is sold, or hold out for a good deal?

• Run for governor of Texas, or move to an island and found your own colony of Jebus-mazed explosion fanciers?

• Fakey Texas drawl, or Cagney impression?

• Run for President, or do something for your country for once?

Wow, that was fun! Which way to the Laura Bush Interactive Driving Experience?

Good suggestions. The petulance of the exhibit is very impressive, although not particularly surprising.

Oh my word Riley. I howled when I read this today. His exhibit sounds a tad bit defensive to me but hey, whatever.

I am old and poor and my right latissimus dorsi is achey this evening, but neverthless, LOL a lot! Thank you, Indiana Sage. I was wondering just the other day what "tack" the "Bush" "Presidential" "Library" would take. Nice to see it's also taking in Junior's gubernatorial (retch) career.

"Bush" + "library" = comedy gold. Now, is there any chance you could go back to the old template? I can't read the blog now without sticking my nose against the screen.

Act on the "Bin Laden determined to strike in U.S." memo, or blow it off?
