Bushie Books

September 25th, 2007 at 3:40 pm

Am I the only one getting really sick of the glut of books on Bush? Does this administration deserve to be publicly lambasted, scrutinized, and held severely accountable for their hubris? Yes! Of course. But aren’t we taking cheap shots at this point? Isn’t this topic really easy at this point? Isn’t it time to stop writing books out of frustration and demand true accountability from, oh I don’t know, Congress? Oh, but that’s right, they’re all too busy neglecting their jobs as they pursue their future job, as president! Argh.

So now we’ve got “The Big Con: The True Story of How Washington Got Hoodwinked and Hijacked by Crackpot Economics” which is guilty of what so many books are similarly guilty of these days, which is a subtitle that is just too long and rambling and lacking a simple, succinct elegance that should be the very definition of a title. But that’s neither here nor there. Evidently, it’s pretty good.

And there’s also The Evangelical President.

I hate that word. Evangelical. I hate it semantically for what it has come to mean in the present culture of our society and its dominance therein. And I hate it linguistically. It seems to be some perverted combination of ejaculate and lick. It’s a dirty word. In every sense.
