Man Robs Bank Wearing George W. Bush Mask

Man Robs Bank Wearing George W. Bush Mask

Pa. cops hunting presidential imitator in swing state stickup

Police in the battleground state of Pennsylvania are looking for a man who robbed a bank Thursday night wearing a George W. Bush mask. The holdup man, who did not flash a weapon, demanded the money from a teller at a Commerce Bank near York. As seen in the below bank surveillance photos–provided to TSG by the Northern York County Regional Police–the robber wore gloves, a ski hat, and a fixed grin. A police spokesman would not say how much the Dubya doppelganger got away with.

That’s just not right.

    Keanu Reeves will catch him!

  2. McGehee says:

    There goes Pennsylvania. I wish George wouldn’t do things like this right before the election.

  3. Bithead says:

    Personally, I’m waiting for John Kerry to tell us that it WAS in fact W, robbing that bank.

    I’ve no doubt many of his supporters would take Kerry’s word for that one.

  4. Heh – he just doesn’t look that much like the President.

    AHHH!!!! HELP!! The weird Bush mask guy is chasing me!

    I would surmise that this robber had a feel for local politics.

    I happen to live near this bank, and my precinct went for Bush over Gore by about 91% to 6% in 2000. And I would describe the Northern York County Regional Police force as being philosophically somewhere to the right of G. Gordon Liddy.

    If the robber would have been wearing a Kerry mask, he probably would have been shot before he even made it into the bank.

    I thought that was a Rod Serling mask!

  7. If I hadn’t just seen Team America over the weekend, I’d say that was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.
