Books on Bush

At his press conference last week, George W. Bush, with a smile on his face, noted that there have been so many books written on his administration that it probably qualifies as some kind of world record. He almost seemed proud of this fact - which leads me to conclude that he has not read even one of the books in question, nor has he been advised as to their content. If he had, it's a fairly safe bet that he wouldn't have been smiling! This really doesn't surprise you, does it? He admittedly doesn't read any of the scores of newspapers that are available to him. With the exception of "The Very Busy Caterpillar", why should we expect him to do something as intellectually taxing as reading a book or two every once in a while?

If there is anyone reading this with any connection to the First Fool or the White House staff, I have here a suggested reading list of twenty-six excellent books. If you would kindly e-mail it to them, It would be much appreciated. They are all finely written and are not listed in any particular order of chronology or importance:

"Shrub: The Short, Happy Political Life of George W. Bush" by Molly Ivins and Lou DuBois

"Bushwhacked: Life in George W. Bush's America" by Molly Ivins and Lou BuBois (Molly and Lou mention in the intro that had we all read their previous book on Bush, which was written before the 2000 election, they wouldn't have had to write this one!

"The Lies of George W. Bush" by David Corn

"Exception to the Rulers" by Amy and David Goodman

"Static: Government Liars, Media Cheerleaders, And the People Who Fight Back" by Amy and Mark Goodman"

"The Best Democracy Money Can Buy" by Greg Palast

"Armed Mad House" by Greg Palast

"The Truth (With Jokes)" by Al Franken

"Fortunate Son" by J.H. Hatfield and Sander Hicks

"The Bush Hater's Handbook: A Guide to the Most Appalling Presidency of the Past 100 Years" by Jack Huberman

"Bush on the Couch" by Dr. Justin Frank

"What's the Matter with Kansas"? by Thomas Frank

"House of Bush. House of Saud" by Craig Unger

"Had Enough? A Handbook for Fighting Back" by James Carville

"Frontier Justice" by Scott Ritter

"The Price of Loyalty" by Ron Susskind

"Against All Enemies" by Richard Clarke

"State of Denial" by Bob Woodward

"The Book on Bush: How George W. Bush (Mis)leads America" by Mark Green and Eric Alterman"

"Worse Than Watergate" by John Dean

"Conservatives Without Conscience" by John Dean

"Thieves in High Places: They've Stolen Our Country and It's Time to Take It Back" by Jim Hightower

"The Impeachment of George W.Bush: A Practical Guide for Concerned Citizens" by Elizabeth Holtzman

"Articles of Impeachment Against George W. Bush" by the Center For Constitutional Rights

"The I Hate George W. Bush Reader: Why Dubya Is Wrong About Absolutely Everything" by Clint Wills

"American Dynasty: Aristocracy, Fortune, and the Politics of Deceit in the House of Bush" by Kevin Phillips
Those are but twenty-six of the literally scores of books that have to date been written about the most dangerously extremist administration in American history. Seek out any or all of them. It's well worth the time and effort.

Happy reading, kids!

I can't keep up with all the bush crime family's atrocities. Skull and Bones: Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask was my introduction to the BFEE ( Bush Family Evil Empire) and concentrates on the bush crime family with kerry having dishonorable mention for shredding information on the POWs eyewitness accounts condemning them to death - Village Voice Feb. 2004 when there was still time to nominate a different Dem challenger to bush. Deep Black Lies online and the book Kiss The Boys Good-bye Poppy bush's drug trafficking in Vietnam.

Thanks for the list. I've printed it out and am starting with James Carville's "Had Enough?"
Also thanks for your recent tip-off about Sue Kelly's voting record in support of the war. I think I'm going to write her and tell her why I'm not voting republican this time after doing so all my life!

Thanks, Tom.

I was hoping these past six years were just a very bad dream, but now you tell me someone has written books about them?

Yesterday I saw another gift from Bush to the Iraqis. All the depleted uranium lying around will poison the land, air and water for 4 BILLION YEARS!!! As a result,childhood Luekemia is is exploding.

PS Can it contaminate Bush's oil?

I am sure that Bush has not read a single one of these and like the story of the emperor's new clothes none of his flunkies would tell him that the books are not flattering. Of course, his flunkies have probably not read them either. Now if it were a book about a goat, that is probably about the extent of his reading level.

4 mins into the video, there's a huge explosion and subsequent mushroom cloud. Why haven't we heard anything about this since it happened?

How many american troops were injured? How many died? Why the news blackout? American voters want to know.
Nothing to see here. Just move along.
Whatever was blown into the air and thrown out of the left side of that mushroom cloud at 3:57 or so was HUGE. The media needs to ask what the HELL is going on over there. I wonder how many Americans were killed as a result of this rocket attack and subsequent explosions.
You will hear of the casualties after the election.

===Email the Public Editor @ the NYTs:
Public @

Ask him if they're sitting on this story until a year after the election just as they did the NSA wiretapping story.

Ask him= I blogged about it the other day...

And another blogger showed up in my comments and left this link:

He took the question of 'What happened with that ammo dump fire?' and ran with it. He's got a YouTube video of the fire on his blog. You gotta check it out - especially what happens at about 3:59 of the video.

A MASSIVE explosion, and I mean massive. It looks like a goddam nuke going off. Must-see

Why is there no news about the HUGE Ammo Dump fires?
This looks like a major disaster.

Looks like a nuke exploded at about 3.55 into the video.

How can you tell that the MSM is criminally complicit?They don't even report something like this.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Whee, World War III, Here We Come!:

==Click here to see the jihad's home video of the American base they successfully blew up in Iraq. I will note this ends with talk about Mecca, the Jihad, and cleansing Isalm of Western influences. The desert storm we unleashed wasn't the victory of the Christian/Jewish armies but rather a dark, blood-red storm that is gathering strength, not weakening at all.=A fraternal war of Shi'a versus Sunni isn't going to help us. And having these wars take place in the heart of the world's oil reserves is pure insanity. Only a madman who worships the Devil that is Death while laying in a coffin in a building called the Tomb at Yale would want such an outcome and this all goes back to why we are in this mess: it doesn't pay to follow the devil.

And this satanist wants to stay the course of course.

Over the past quarter century, South Korean theocrat Sun Myung Moon has been one of the Bush family’s major benefactors – both politically and financially – while enjoying what appears to be protection against federal investigations into evidence that his cult-like organization has functioned as a criminal enterprise.

W= Moon is already sitting on most of that aquifer Funny how those names get linked, isn't it?
= How does the government of Paraguay feel about this?

=. Have you read Robert Parry on the creepy connections between Moon and *Co?

The Moon-Bush Cash Conduit
Also Dark Side of Rev. Moon

Creepy, long-standing connections between Moon and the BFEE. Sooner or later the intentions of both will merge in plain sight.
= The U.S. does have an extradition treaty with Paraguay, butif they can repeal habeas corpus in the U.S., how hard will it be to change Paraguayan law?

=The extradition treaty exempts oliticians. Un real...this really creeps me out.

The Bushes are preparing to bail andleave the entire country in "Katrina'd" condition.

===Prensa Latina: Bush Paraguay Land Grab Incites Unease has an excellent article and comments about Rev. Moon over Paraguay and the boys from brazil - Barry and The Boys

Hi Tom,
Here is a link to a site that gives much info about the iraq war, direct from Iraq.
So far this month, 71 soldiers have now joined their forebears.
The large explosion was an ammunition dump.
The war is over, America lost. Bush and his masters are avoiding the truth.

Was anyone as disbelieving as I, when Bush claimed that he'd read 60 books, so far, this year? He also said his reading tastes are "eck-a lectic". One of my father's comments on hearing this (and the only one that can be repeated in polite society), was: "60 books?!? He hasn't read 60 books in his life."

60 BOOKS???
Ah, heck! He's never even watched 60 Minutes!
Of this, I have no doubt!
