According to the highly reputable and most reliable news source The Onion, the CIA wishes Bush would quit blogging:

“Right now, the president insists it’s his right to have it, as long as he doesn’t work on it during White House work hours,” McLaughlin said. “But I believe we’ll be able to convince him, if we let him calm down. And even if we don’t, frankly, I can’t see the blog holding his interest for too long.”

Right 😉

    Nice photography as well.

    Ah, of course. Very similar tone to John Howard’s blog. Kind of funny as a concept but my god do they go on and on…

    (and no, believe nothing you read in The Onion…)

    Oh yes, I had thought of if the news was fake – as I got different versions of George Bush’s weblog from the search engines. But it would be interesting if he had one that exposed most of his personal life/true self.
