OMG, PRESIDENT BUSH must be stealing moves from Blair Waldorf’s playbook.
In a not so subtle dig against the liberal, culture-loving elite, he has appointed country singer LEE GREENWOOD — famous for penning “God, Bless the USA” — to a six-year term on the NATIONAL COUNCIL ON THE ARTS. From their Web site: “The Presidential appointments, by law, are selected for their widely recognized knowledge of the arts or their expertise or profound interest in the arts.”
Well played Dubya. We hope that Greenwood wears his his trademark Stars and Stripes windbreaker to meetings with NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS chairman DANA GIOIA.
After the jump, Flavorwire wagers guesses about who else was on Bush’s shortlist of candidates. Be sure to tell us who we’ve missed in the comments.
1. GRETCHEN WILSON – the poor man’s Palin, she’s a redneck woman who “ain’t never been the Barbie doll type” 2. CHUCK NORRIS – we imagine that Bush is a fan of this conservative actor and his made-up facts 3. WAYNE NEWTON – Mr. Las Vegas is a both a big Republican contributor and really old 4. COREY FELDMAN – he had a guest hosting spot on A&E’s BIOGRAPHY, which is the one TV show Bush watches 5. ELIZABETH HASSELBECK – because we can’t imagine anything more evil
