No President Left Behind

The former president has some time on his hands these days, so he dropped by a local elementary school’s open house:
Ducking in one room, Bush asked, “Hey, kids, do you know who I am?”
Gasps all around, then someone blurted, “George Washington!”
“That’s right!” the visitor said. “George Washington Bush!”
Well, the middle initial was the same, anyway.
In a dual-language class, Bush tried to introduce himself in Spanish. But it came off a little too twangy. He tried again. Blank looks. Even held up three fingers. You know, a “W.” Still nothing.
Finally, Pershing’s energetic principal, Margie Hernandez, stepped in with a proper Spanish introduction.
The kids laughed. The former president laughed. The principal laughed, out of relief, mostly.
… relief that this guy no longer has his finger on the button or at the helm of the education system.
