It’s a Museum Without All That Pesky Knowledge

Justin December 29, 2009 1

The George W Bush Presidential library has released a list of some of the stuff it will have on display.

Sports memorabilia is high on the list. The facility will feature a baseball bat from 2001 signed by every living Hall of Famer. It will also have this autographed jersey.

Dr. Jennifer M. Schulle is shown with a sampling of gifts to former President George W. Bush, Tuesday, July 7, 2009 in Lewisville, Texas.

There’s a bunch of weird stuff on the list:

  • A pair of custom cowboy boots emblazoned with a giant “GWB” monogram
  • Diamond-and-sapphire jewelry given to Laura Bush by the king of Saudi Arabia
  • A mosaic of St. Peter’s Square given to Bush by Pope Benedict
  • A bat signed by all the living members of the Baseball Hall of Fame, circa 2001
  • The 9mm Glock Saddam Hussein had on him when US forces captured him
  • Gold and silver swords
  • A surfboard
  • Countless cowboy hats and saddles

You know what I don’t see, though? BOOKS!!!

    I heard they’re going to display a fake Jesus there too… ya know, as opposed to the “real” one.
