As of January 20, comedians have to work for a living

The days of the cheap laugh being handed to them are over:
Earlier in the day, Bush got a look at how history will remember him _ at least in one artist's view _ as he presided over the unveiling of his portrait at a private club.

P.S., I will miss Dubya too, but we still have Sarahcuda to kick around. Fingers crossed for 2012...
