News.com.com reports that George W. Bush has been chosen to be on Apple's board of directors. Apple has a press release with more information. According to the press release, 'George brings an incredible wealth of pretzels and blind determination to Apple from having helped run the largest first-world capital punishment system in the world -- the Texas state government' and 'The shareholder voting came down to either him or Al Gore. Gore won on votes, but the board of directors interpreted the vote in such a way that Bush ended up receiving the spot.' The inventor of 'Shock and Awe' should be a valuable asset to Apple.
