Bush Appoints Lee Greenwood to National Arts Council

mojo-photo-leegreenwood.jpgBoy, good old George W. Bush sure is going down fighting. It turns out that his efforts to screw things up as much as possible before he leaves office aren't just confined to the environment: Vulture catches that right before the election, Bush snuck "God Bless the USA" singer Lee Greenwood on to the National Council on the Arts, a 14-member commission that reviews and recommends grant applications to the NEA. Council members serve 6-year terms, and I'm pretty sure Bush can count that high--Greenwood will be the only Bush appointee to serve all four years of Obama's first term. My suggestion to Obama: Maybe appoint the surviving members of the Wu-Tang Clan as seats open up?
