(Newser) – The Bush-Cheney Alumni Association is taking to the Internet, reports Politico, by setting up a social networking website for people who worked in the Bush administration. The Bushies-only site is expected to launch in a few months, says the head of the BCAA, who expects “thousands” to sign up. A Facebook group for Bush alumni currently boasts about 400 members.

“Compared to the previous administration, we are coming out when technology makes it really easy to stay connected because you can do this kind of thing,” he says. “Bush 41 or Reagan, they were on paper. And even for Clinton, you didn’t have this.”
