Bookworm Bush's Holiday Reading

Does anyone believe this crap?

Maybe some enterprising journalist (pardon the oxymoron) should simply ask him what he is reading. See if he knows the titles. If he knows them, ask him what each is about. Then ask him the names of the authors.

I'm sorry, but I'm a reader. Being a reader teaches you (forces you?) to think. It teaches you grammar. It enables you to speak with clarity. It makes you curious, if you weren't before. It helps you see around metaphorical corners and ascertain the potential outcomes of any action.

I do not believe this jerk is reading these books, much less reading, period.

Just how much of this trans fat does this administration expect us to swallow?

Update (08/23/2005):

It appears one of the authors cited in the above article doesn't believe the story either!

Second Update (08/24/05):

Kir Slevin writes the following in Alternet.
The significance remains that the summer reading list is about the most transparent example of the administration using the big lie technique -- that is, playing the public and the media for fools. That the lies haven't been watertight, that holes have quickly appeared, that critics have vented a sea of ink in outrage, doesn't matter. The administration's lies give reason to policy and create enough ambiguity for action. And after action, it's too late for critics and opponents.

Remember what a senior official told Ron Suskind in 2002: "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating new realities ... we're history's actors ... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

Over and over again, after exposing the big lies of the administration, columnists and pundits have claimed the jig was up (in the war lead-up, and especially before the election). Father Andrew Greeley wrote that Bush's big lie was "coming apart" in September of 2003. The same year, Robert Scheer said, "Bush has pushed the Big Lie approach so far that we are seeing dramatic signs of its cracking." In 2004 Nicholas von Hoffman wrote, "It's not easy to pull off the Big Lie and George Bush has failed."

But the lies live on, not unscathed, but still operative in some quarters. And worse, the lies have permanently changed the course of history. They have induced an alternate reality in which lies and facts occupy the same space.

Thom Hartman, writing last year about the big lies that smeared Kerry's war record, probably had it the most right: "History tells us that, over the short term, the Big Lie usually works. Over the long term, though, the damage it does -- both to those who use it, and to the society on which it is inflicted -- is incalculable."

    "BREAKING NEWS"
    ===============

    -Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
    the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
    REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

    These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
    be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

    Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
    Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
    make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

    the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
    as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
    the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
    time to replant and develop new root systems.

    Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
    with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
    growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

    Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
    As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
    EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
    about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

    Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
    Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
    Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.
