Just Wait Till They Actually Build the Bush Library. Imagine the Fun Then.

Yesterday, The Dallas Morning News ran a piece about how Mark Langdale, president of the George W. Bush Library Foundation, is shaping the vision for the $300 million facility due to open on the SMU campus in, oh, 'bout five years give or take. Thus far, only two astute DallasNews.com readers have noticed the WTF image behind Langdale in the accompanying photo: Bush's face superimposed over an image of Martin Luther King Jr. And they probably noticed it only because the photo's the subject of a Think Progress item today headlined "Bush Legacy Watch: Is he the next MLK?" Um ... yes? No, wait ... no. Is this a trick question? --Robert Wilonsky
