Saddam Hussein Donates Handgun To George Bush Museum Exhibit

What has George Bush been doing lately, besides saying stupid things for lots of money, and trying his hardest not to choke on a pretzel stick? He has been working hard on a museum exhibit, which will feature Saddam Hussein’s gat. When did George Bush decide he was going to get all artsy-fartsy and start curating gun exhibits? This exhibit is also about 9/11 bullhorns:

“Breaking New Ground: Presenting the George W. Bush Presidential Center,” an exhibit set to open this weekend on the campus of Southern Methodist University, prominently features the handgun taken from Saddam Hussein and the loudspeaker used to address rescue workers at the World Trade Center in September 2001.

Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

    The museum may be able to house the bullhorn but no facility would be large enough for the bullshit. Also, who the fuck visits these museums dedicated to the memory of mediocre-at-best politicians? Can't think of anywhere else something comparable exists.

    Allow me to edumacate my fellow Wonketteers on the true, abject cowardliness of Dubya. I was unfortunate privileged enough to be in Iraq during one of his very infrequent visits. We couldn't even bring KEYS into the hall where he held one of his "I'm a dear leader" rallies, so terrified was the man that someone would take a swipe at him (we were allowed to bring our shoes, in those days). For him to say the pistol is one of his most prized possessions is, possibly, even more offensive than anything he did while in office. It's a stretch, but coveting a trinket you spilled the blood of 4000 brave Americans and tens of thousands of Iraqis to get from the soldier who actually put his life on the line to recover it from Saddam may well be a new low.

    Oh, and just by way of contrast, when McCain, Obama, hell, even Dubya's brother Jeb came to Iraq, they were stone chillin' with all of us unwashed masses. What a fuckin' tool.

      Yeah, but he kept us safe (except for that one day) by fighting them over there so we wouldn't have to fight them over here (except over mosks).

      To be fair, that list was probably made by a Secret Service agent. All Bush asked for was no horses.

    Heh-heh, daddy, do ya love me now? I took that pistol offa that Saddam fella that tried to kill ya, then I had him hanged. Even though you thought I was a retard, I finished what you started, heh-heh.

      "Sorry, 43, you were still only a cheerleader at Yale, where I was a baseball star. And you were a failed oilman, while I made substantial additions to the family's fortune while in Texas. And I was a genuine combat war hero, while you were AWOL in Alabama. And I was a serviceable president and reliable attender of funerals as veep, ambassador to China, head of the CIA. Whereas whatever you touched in government was magically transmutated to shit."
      –GHW Bush, if he could form complete sentences

    Still waiting for Duhya to lead Texas to its independence and leave the country (also deleting this museum from the country). Do it for Freedumb, George! This country is socialist now.

      Oh to dream…

      That'll be my number two fantasy after him getting season tickets to shows at the Ford Theatre.

    Official copies of "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." and "My Pet Goat", or GTFO. And I hope they serve a nice big yellow cake at the opening.

    1. SayItWithWookies

      The rumors of yellow cake turned out to be unfounded — however, if we all gather at the table where the yellow cake was to be presented, Scooter Libby will tell us who Joe Wilson is married to.

    Remember when Shrubby said

    America must not ignore the threat gathering against us. Facing clear evidence of peril, we cannot wait for the final proof, the smoking gun that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud.

    Well now he's got the smoking gun and — funny thing — it's just a gun.

  7. SayItWithWookies

    It's great that someone's honoring Dubya's legacy of freedom — the freedom of Iraqi children to play in the rubble of their homes, the freedom of Iran to fund and supply parties in Iraq, the freedom of no-bid contractors to forklift huge pallets of cash off of C-130s and stuff their pockets with the, the freedom of medeival sadists working in secret to beat prisoners and civilization into the 14th century, the freedom of our government to spy on every damn citizen in the country without oversight, and I'm sure a bunch more that history has yet to render an opinion about because they're still top secret or whatever badass designation our fucking manhood-deprived spooks want to use — does Condor Molotov sound manly enough? — that asshole needs to be remembered for freedom — the freedom of everything ugly about humanity unleashed on the world by a spoiled, ignorant fool and his evil toadies.

    And here we see the president's tennis racket he actually played with at Andover. You might be interested to learn that the Bush household was very strict. The president was once denied his allowance because left the racket in the pool house and had to buy another for the club. Now if you'll all follow me this way we'll enter the hall of $20,000 cowboy boots.

    Wait, where are the copies of the warrants used to arrest him and his gang of war criminals? Oh, sorry, that's not coming until 2011.

    It was me and a gun and Dick Cheney on my back
    But I haven't seen Condi naked, so I must get out of this
