Bush Memoirs-- Publishers are Less than Eager

Poor George.

It seems that when it comes to post-presidential book deals, The Bush Years are not in high demand.

The Seattle Times
puts it gently this way;

"If I were advising President Bush, given how the public feels about him right now, I think patience would probably be something that I would encourage," says Paul Bogaards, executive director of publicity for Alfred A. Knopf, which in 2004 released Bill Clinton's million-selling "My Life." (snip)

In a poor economy, it's not a great time for anyone to shop a book, and certainly not for a deeply unpopular president. Bush's approval ratings are in the 20s and Republicans are at a low moment after Tuesday night, when Obama defeated Sen. John McCain by a convincing margin and Democrats expanded majorities in Congress.
If this is true then I am going to reaffirm my belief in Karama.

I know I have absolutely zero interest in ever (in my lifetime) buying a book written by this war criminal and craven, morally bankrupt man. If I never have to see him or listen to him again it would be too soon. I can't wait for 1/19/2009 and when we can be rid of this idiot.
