It’s hardly secret knowledge that George W. Bush is an absolute idiot, but is he an idiot savant? Perhaps. After a hacker exposed email correspondences between several members of the Bush family earlier this week, you might expect deep, dark secrets and details of global conspiracies to have been exposed. Sure, there were details of the former POTUS’ poor health last year and other things that I couldn’t care less about, but the most interesting thing to come out of the scandal is that ol’ Georgie is a bit of a painter and specialises in self-portraits.
From The Smoking Gun:
Correspondence obtained by the hacker indicates that at least six separate e-mail accounts have been compromised, including the AOL account of Dorothy Bush Koch, daughter of George H.W. Bush and sister of George W. Bush. Other breached accounts belong to Willard Heminway, 79, an old friend of the 41st president who lives in Greenwich, Connecticut; CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz, a longtime Bush family friend; former first lady Barbara Bush’s brother; and George H.W. Bush’s sister-in-law.
Both Heminway and Nantz corresponded with Bush, 88, about playing golf and visiting the Bush compound in Kennebunkport, Maine.
The hacked e-mails, sent between 2009 and 2012, include correspondence between Nantz and George W. Bush’s scheduler about an October 2010 golf outing in Dallas. One e-mail includes the street address for Bush, 66, as well as the four-digit code Nantz needed to enter at a security gate. A second e-mail includes details of where Nantz and Bush planned to have dinner after their Saturday golf outing.
Blah blah, boring. Let’s check out these sweet pictures of our former president in the bath, shall we?
Who knew George had an artistic side?
