Some of the loudest applause was reserved for George H.W. Bush, the former Republican president who has devoted nearly 70 of his 86 years to public service, starting when he joined the Navy on his 18th birthday. He served as a congressman from Texas, U.N. ambassador, Republican Party chairman, U.S. envoy to China, director of central intelligence, a two-term vice president and one term as the 41st president.

"His life is a testament that public service is a noble calling," Obama said. Bush's wife, Barbara, and their children listened from the front row. "His humility and his decency reflect the very best of the American spirit. Those of you who know him, this is a gentleman."

What planet are we living on? I feel like I'm in the middle of a very bad science fiction movie where alien monsters resembling humans have taken over the planet. Either that or a horror movie where zombies have taken over the place.
