TULSA, January 27, 2008. AP - One year after he resigned his office in disgrace over the Valerie Plame spy scandal, former President George W. Bush starts work at a local Chevron station. When asked about his new job as Assistant Retail Outlet Manager, Mr. Bush said, "I know there've been questions about whether this job is real suitable for me, and all. But, I'm pretty well qualified for this. I've worked for the oil industry almost my entire career."

Concerns have been raised about the ability of the Secret Service to provide adequate protection to the former President, who is widely disliked by most Americans. Critics have questioned whether Bush's proximity to the public might be a problem for his security detail. Mr. Bush dismissed such concerns, saying,

"I'm inside that little booth most of the day, and it's got real thick glass and a lock on the door. I feel like a fish in there, and it does get kinda hot. When I have to go to the little boy's room, the guys walk me over there. They blend in real good, wearing jeans and tee-shirts. They stand guard until I'm done and escort me back again."

"After a few days, after you reporters are gone, nobody'll even notice that I'm here."
