Bush's First Video Blog: "I Torture People" [VIDEO]

Open Left has produced this darkly funny parody of George W. Bush making his own video blog. First off, this impersonator is one of the best Bush impressionists I feel like I've ever seen. It's nuanced and the voice is pretty much right, but he really captures that veiled contempt that Bush seems to always have, especially during press conferences. Ever notice that? How he starts that "let me finish" thing whenever he feels threatened. Anyway, in his first "video blog", Bush talks about how after the Libby "computation" he has nothing to lose, and since he never gets in trouble for anything, he could "shoot a kid" if he wants to. Check out the video to your right for more.
