George W. Bush is Father of the Year
George W. Bush, our greatest living President, was just named Father of the Year. Go ahead, make yourself a liberal tears cocktail and we'll wait here.
Seriously though, he was honored at the 74th Annual Father of the Year Awards luncheon at the New York, which raised $1.3 million for Save the Children's U.S. programs.
He spoke of priorities...
"I think the most important priority for a dad is to be a dad. In my case, I might have been slightly self-absorbed at times, but when I became a dad, I only had one real job and that was to provide for these little girls. Was I always successful? I don't know. They can be the witnesses."
And how fatherhood helped him get sober...
"You see, what happened to me was alcohol was becoming a love. It was beginning to crowd out my affections for most important love, if you're a dad, and that's loving your little girls. And so, fatherhood meant sobriety."
Liberals are of course taking the news as liberals. Cherry picking tweets isn't really our style, but they're out there if you are in the mood for a laugh.
Three cheers to George W. Bush!
