Following the Senate Intelligence Committee's vote to declassify parts of the Senate report on the CIA detention and interrogation program, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart decided to take a little walk down "things we'd like to erase from our memory lane" and see how the Bush administration "are dealing with their twisted legacy."

Of course we had Cheney sticking to his guns, and pretending that what they did wasn't torture. Rumsfeld unrepentant as always. And then there's "the puppet master" George W. Bush, painting portraits of his friends and oblivious as usual.

On the topic of Bush's art, I agree with Stewart and his final remarks:

STEWART: I am glad that George W. Bush finds his art to be a fulfilling pursuit. I just wish he could have seen this ad (Draw Me "Tippy") like 30 years earlier. It could have saved us a lot of quagmires.

Can you help us out?
