President George W. Bush and 51 of his political allies and associates are featured in this pack. Each portrait photo carries text beneath, highlighting some of the not-so-clever remarks uttered by each character. The cards are parallelogram-shaped or, as it states on the box, “….. slanted to the right!!”. The unusual shape actually makes the cards quite easy to hold. Bush also appears on the reverse, within a border of rockets (or bombs?) and oil rigs. See the box►
