George W. Bush's farewell tour is going swimmingly! We're all so thrilled to be rid of him that we're just letting him bumble around seeming kinda sad and relieved.
Today he held his last press conference ever (as president) (or maybe ever?) and sure he touched on the Gaza thing but otherwise it was all soft-focus fuzzy legacy nostalgia questions and Bush cracked some old man jokes. It was pretty much a 2000 campaign friendship reunion. Back then, everyone loved Bush very much because he cracked jokes on his airplane, to reporters. Al Gore did not, and so he was a liar who wore earth tones, the end.
Here is the full press conference, in case you have 45 minutes to kill. Go to seven-and-a-half-minutes in to see the president make a funny joke about pronouncing his name in a frenchy sort of way. He will be missed.
