Lobbyist/cannibal defender/the guy you call when you have a child sex abuse scandal Lanny Davis has a handy three-point plan for coming to terms with the presidency of George W. Bush, you know, if you’re a “liberal Democrat” like he is.

Step 1. Bush didn’t lie. He was just mistaken.

Step 2. “No Child Left Behind” totally worked.

Step 3. Remember “what a good man with a good heart Bush is.” See, this one time while at Yale, Davis witnessed Bush tell another student to “knock it off” when he witnessed some anti-LGBT bullying. Also, Bush liked that his dog never talked politics.

Feel better about Bush’s legacy yet?
