After two years already spent fading away, George W. Bush is back! This Thursday he'll take over the networks for a goodbye speech.

On Thursday the White House will interrupt your TV (in less enlightened nations leaders have to own their own television networks for this kinda exposure) for 10 to 15 minutes, during which Bette Middler will sing to him and then his helicopter will take off and he'll see that B.J. spelled out a goodbye in the White House lawn and then he'll play poker with Data and oddly only Ted Baxter will keep his White House job and then the whole thing will end right in the middle of a Journey song.

Or else he'll just lie for 10 minutes like usual.
