Bush is a robot, as if you didn’t think that already

Would the real George Bush please stand down (via Meg), a classic article from the Guardian which speculates on how Dubya is able to appear in two places at once.

So if it’s not him, who is it? Some experts suspect that this might be a heretofore unknown Bush brother, a family sleeper who has been groomed to step in at times of crisis, or even George Bush Sr on his first outing following a recent toupee fitting and a course of Botox injections. Yesterday’s appearance has also given fresh credence to outlandish claims that Mr Bush’s public outings have long been undertaken by an animatronic puppet especially built for Dick Cheney in the mid-1990s.

Har! The robot is President. Pass the battery charger.
