Farewell

Bush’s Goodbye Party

Obamania has so overtaken Washington D.C. that even the Bushies apparently couldn’t find a room in the city: They threw their farewell party in Glen Echo Park, Maryland. Dubbed “Crossing the Finish Line,” the party was thrown by White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten and his predecessor Andrew Card. Attendees were instructed to wear coats, as the party would be chilly, and Card apparently had difficulty securing a band. Karl Rove, Dana Perino, Condi Rice, and Alberto Gonzales were all spotted. George and Laura Bush showed up too, for a speech. "This is objectively the finest group of people ever to serve our country," the outgoing president said. "Not to serve me, not to serve the Republican Party, but the United States of America."
