The Name Bush’s Biography Contest: And The Winner Is…

Why is it that every time I think about writing a W piece, the tune Wayward Son (YouTube) pops in my head?

At long last, the winners of the Name Bush’s Biographical Tome Contest. And an assorted compilation of some of my faves, because it’s Friday and we all deserve a laugh.

As you’ll see, this was a tough one to judge — toughest one I’ve had to do since the Dick Cheney shot his lawyer friend in the face poetry contest — so I added four runner-up prizes as well because it was just too hard to choose only one.
