U.S. presidents have long kept prized possessions within reach during their White House years. Franklin D. Roosevelt cherished a 19th century ship model of the USS Constitution. Dwight D. Eisenhower kept an engraved Steuben glass bowl from his cabinet. Sitting on John F. Kennedy’s desk in the Oval Office was a paperweight made from a coconut shell he had carved with a distress message after his PT-109 was sunk during World War II.

With the controversial news that George W. Bush would open his library on the Southern Methodist University in Dallas — more than 100 teachers and professors signed a letter opposing the library, a frequent joke went Bush wouldn’t have enough items to fill an entire presidential library.

Well, laugh no more.

When Bush’s library opens in 2013, along side a copy of My Pet Goat,visitors will be treated with one of his most treasured items: Saddam Hussein’s pistol. The gun, a 9 millimeter Glock 18C, was found in the spider hole where the Iraqi leader was captured in December 2003 by Delta Force soldiers, four of whom later presented the pistol to Mr. Bush. Among the thousands of gifts he received as president, the gun became a favorite, a reminder of the pinnacle moment of the Iraq war, according to friends and long-time associates.

    How perfect!

    FDR had a vintage 19th century model, Eisenhower had an engraved Steuben glass bowl, and the great JFK had a paperweight made from his service on the PT-109.

    Bush has a gun from a dictator. What a damned loser.

    All I know is they had better have security at SMU because outside TX and OK, Bush is the most hated man on earth. I won’t be surprised if the library is bombed.

  3. I thought libraries had to have books in them.

    The Bush library should engraved stones listing all the American soldiers who died needlessly in his illegal Iraq war. The stones could line the entrance walls and they would be the first images visitors see. Death, suffering and heartache, these are the lasting Bush legacies.

    What about the coloring books?

  6. retahyajyajav says:

    I wonder if there are any porno pictures of Bush and Jeff Gannon together or Gannon alone?

    We know based on released FBI and Secret Service logs that Gannon slept over at the White House more than 100 times in 18 months while Pickles was away in Texas or in New York.

    Bush is one sick fuck.

  8. I can’t wait to check out the 21-and-over section in the basement. For only an extra $20, you too can see the charred remains of Uday!
