It sucks when prominent former American leaders’ personal e-mail’s get hacked, because it is an invasion of privacy and all that stuff.

Earlier this year, a few of Bush’s paintings were leaked, but Gawker recently obtained more of the weird yet charming artworks of George W.
Here are 10 of his best pieces so far.
(Also, note his badass signature on each painting: “43″ — because, you know — he was the 43rd president.)
