Cover of the December 2007 issue of People Magazine

New York (APE) - President George W Bush has been named the "stupidest man alive" by People magazine. The 61 year old chief executive will be featured on the cover of People's annual issue, due to hit newsstands on Friday.

"You gave an aging urban cowboy the ego boost of a lifetime," stated Bush in an official letter to the magazine's publishers. "My two daughters are cool with it - well, chill? I guess all that campaigning by Karl and Dick has taken a toll."

"Unfortunately, after all those years out on the bike trail, the meet and greets, the fundraisers, the brush clearing speeches, I've finally come to terms with the fact that this is a mantle that I was always meant to hold," he said in the letter, which was signed "Dubya." "Don't get me wrong, though. I wasn't really shocked or happy (Laura said I actually forgot to flush when she read me the news). So thanks a lot, I guess."

People's "stupidest man alive" list began in 2005 with Bill O'Reilly. Others on the list: Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Donald Rumsfeld, and Paul Wolfowitz.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
