Sometimes things that aren't meant for public consumption can't be kept secret, like torture memos or the real reason we went to war with Iraq. Also on that list are George W. Bush's most recent paintings, which are making the internet rounds thanks to a hacker who broke into various Bush family members' email accounts.
The paintings are notable because, aside from being a cheerleader, Dubya never really struck anyone as the "artistic type." What's more, the simple but well-composed images depict him in the bathtub and shower. As always, everyone is a critic on the internet.
That can't be George W. Bush's painting. Where's the rubber ducky in the tub?

The quality of George Bush's art discourages me from picking up painting again.

Please God bring Will Ferrell back to SNL as George W. Bush, the ex-president who is now apparently into painting portraits of himself naked

W. Bush's painting are nice, but I always pictured him spending his retirement shooting yo-yos with a sixgun when he screws up a trick.

I meant to say: The George W. Bush shower painting is the Las Meninas of the Terrorism Era.
