For those of you who thought Dubya was illiterate (“Not so. Mah parents were married! And t’ each other!”) think again, because Crown books will publish his biography of his father George H.W. Bush:
According to Crown, the book will cover the elder Bush’s whole life and his influence on his son, from George W.’s “childhood in West Texas to his early campaign trips with his father, and from his decision to go into politics to his own two-term presidency.”
The book will be “heartfelt, intimate, and illuminating,” Crown publisher Maya Mavjee said in a statement.
The book will be about 300 pages long (wide margins? Double-spaced lines?) and W done wrote it all by his lonesome, with a fresh pencil ‘n everything. Hopefully it will cover the famous drunken fistfight challenge with Poppy and be named something like, Everything I Ever Wanted To Know About Invading Iraq But Was Afraid To Ask.

Bush crime family macrocephalic exhibit A Not Chimpy, er, I mean Jeb stepped in it again. And he’s supposed to be the smart one?
Take it away, Tiger Beat on the Potomac:
On immigration, he said that those who come into the country illegally generally do so because they had no other means to provide for their family, and what they did is “not a felony.”
“It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family,” Bush said. “I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime. There should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.”
OK, I just threw up a little in the back of my mouth when the words “Jeb Bush” and “Act of Love” co-mingled on my screen.
Anyway, the primaries are when Wingnuttia look for purity (which in this instance involves electrifying a thousand mile border fence, with a moat and alligators, and gattling guns every 10 feet to keep out the dusky menace; Canadians please accept our welcome wagon), love action comes in the general, Jeb.
Whoops, threw-up a little again.
Oh, honest-to-blog, Chimpy McStagger is going to have an exhibition of his finger-painting at his Texas liberry, and NBC is promoting it with a hard-hitting interview with his daughter, Jenna.
From the Tiger Beat on the Potomac email thingie (thanks Charlie!) that I usually throw away:
MRS. BARBARA BUSH HOSPITALIZED: “HOUSTON — Following is a statement by the Office of George H. W. Bush on the hospitalization of former First Lady Barbara Bush: ‘Former First Lady Barbara Bush was admitted to Methodist Hospital in Houston’s Texas Medical Center yesterday for treatment on a respiratory related issue. She is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care. Updates will be issued when warranted.'”
Belief in evolution among Republicans has dropped more than 10 percentage points since 2009, according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center.
And I suppose after 8 long years of Chimpy McStagger, the Republicans might have a point. (Livewire)
…we offer this reprise showing:
UPDATE: Great minds think alike: One of the Internet Blogger Hall-o-Fame greatest stylists and a personal hero of mine, Jurassic Pork also is calling Chimpy’s Lieberry a collection of pop-up books. Also, too: What JP Said.
George W. Bush Library Set to Open at SMU
The Chimpy McStagger reading room…”will preserve for history the important decisions made by President Bush during his presidency and will embody and carry on the values of President and Mrs. Bush.”
I think that’s a long-winded way of saying that there will be an open bar and a pharmacy.
The so-called smart Bush Jeb (married to a notrorious tax cheat, father of an addict, an anger-management candidate, and a third kid who likes to have under-aged sex in public) is proud of his brother, Chimpy whom he says has no opinions.
This might be the first truthful thing a Bush has ever said on record.
…will be awarded to The Smart Bush–you know, the Bush married to the tax evader, with the addict daughter, the anger-management son, and the other son noted for underaged public sex– who will be on all the Sunday Talkies.
Hasn’t Bush crime family done enough to us?
