“Eight years was awesome and I was famous and I was powerful,” Bush told the Hoover Institute’s Peter Robinson.The Onion's fake story about George W. Bush in 2009:
"I was president," murmured Bush, his mind returning again and again to the thought of "eight years" as he emitted a series of short, guttural laughs that reportedly grew in volume the longer he lingered on his time in office. "That was what I did for a living. Me. George W. Bush. For almost a decade."
"I did that," Bush added. "As my job."
Continued Bush, "I'll be damned if I wasn't the president of the United States of America."
