The original parody: while Bush trying to shut down GWBush.com this parody unfolded on
the site. It began with Bush's proposal, called Amnesty 2000, in which he promised to pardon all criminals who
had "grown up," as he had. Then Bush went further to raise the age at which criminals are tried as juveniles
to 40, the age at which he said he became a "mature person." Eventually Bush, a man of integrity in the
world of GWBush.com, turned himself in for his own past drug crimes. Here's how it unfolded:
Bush announces a bold policy initiative: Amnesty
June 7: "Life begins at 40!"
Gov. Bush will raise the age at which juveniles can be tried as adults to 40.
June 20: Bush turns himself in
for past drug crimes in attempt to "usher in the responsibility era."
Candidate will campaign from federal prison cell.
July: As Gov. Bush sits in jail, awaiting trial for past drug crimes, he is flooded with
letters of solidarity
from other prisoners of the drug war.
August: "George, why are you IN THERE?"
"Ralph, why are
out THERE?" Bush
delivers a moral lecture to friend Ralph Reed through the bars of his federal prison cell.
Sept 28: Jailed Bush endorses John McCain for president. "He's
experienced, he's the better man in every way, and our platforms are virtually identical."
