Bastardette could almost forgive country star Rodney Atkins for being the celebrity spokesperson National Council for Adoption. I spent 15 years working with theatre celebs and wannabes, and I’m well aware that “celebrities” don’t know what they are talking about most of the time. Besides, Atkins was a sickly child and was “adopted” three times before somebody agreed to take him full-time. That’s a real drag.

Whatever sins Atkins has committed in the name of NCFA, however, pale in comparison to this: Atkins headlined a Welcome Home rally in Midland, Texas for the town’s village idiot, George W. Bush, recently returned from a prolonged stay in Washington DC.

Atkins performed for Bush at the White House in November 2007. Since the singer’s invitation to perform at the Obama inauguration must have gotten lost in the mail, he couldn’t’t resist the opportunity to become a first responder for His Incompetency:

They’re (George and Laura) just so personable and down to earth,” Rodney told The Midland Reporter-Telegram. “With the events he has had to deal with, it is amazing that he carried himself so well. He’s dealt with the weight of the world.”

Between 20,000-30,000 attended the homecoming celebration. Lee Greenwood and The Gatlin Brothers also entertained. Bush told the crowd that “the presidency has been a joyous experience” for him. I’m glad it was joyous for someone.


  1. In the past couple of days, President Obama has been looking at the guidelines for Executive Privilege in the Presidential Archives. The way the thing is written, it sort of sounds as if Old Bushy might want to watch his back! Eventually, karma is going to catch up with him and it will be a BITCH!!

    Executive Order — Presidential Records

    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to establish policies and procedures governing the assertion of executive privilege by incumbent and former Presidents in connection with the release of Presidential records by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) pursuant to the Presidential Records Act of 1978, it is hereby ordered as follows:…it goes into the specifics. They are interesting…

  2. Hmmmmm. Does that mean he is looking into prosecution? If ever a president abused Executive Privilege, Dubya did. Now, aren’t you Texans (heh heh) glad to have your boy back? (Sorry Sandy…couldn’t resist.)

  3. Of course no respectable gathering of nutters would be complete without Lee Greenwood. His flamboyant rendition of patriotism kind of makes up for his short comings.
