(Newser) – It sure ain't the G8: George W. Bush, nine months retired, is headlining a motivational speaking "mega show" in Fort Worth next week, which promises "more inspirational firepower than a stick of dynamite!" As the event's screaming website reveals, the former president is appearing alongside Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani, as well as the "legendary" quarterback Terry Bradshaw and an alleged "top sales expert." Cost to see the former commander in chief: $19, helpfully glossed as "not per person, but per office."
