14 Times I Made Decisionings, by George W. Bush

A little over a year ago, I shared the great news that former president Mondo Fucko was penning a memoir about all the notable decisionings he decisioned as the Decider of the USA.

Well, hold onto your seats, Shakers, because Decision Points—focusing on 14 "critical and historic" decisions and "bring[ing] readers inside the Texas Governor's Mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One on 9/11 in the gripping hours after America's most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; inside the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and behind the Oval Office desk for his historic and controversial decisions on the financial crisis, Hurricane Katrina, Afghanistan, Iran, and other issues that have shaped the first decade of the 21st century"—is set for release "exactly one week after November's midterm elections" later this year.

Why do I get the feeling that a book which promises to take us "inside" the key moments of the Bush presidency should just be a picture book featuring images of Bush looking clueless, confused, frozen, and/or captured in the midst of goofballin'?

The book will carry a suggested retail price of $35, but 1,000 cloth-bound and signed editions will be available for $350.
Please, Baby Jesus, please tell me that the cloth-bound editions will be swathed in mini-reproductions of his Optimistic Rug!
