Chapter 1, page 4: "Just before our last stop, Dad, Mary Matalin (ever the loyal soldier), the Oak Ridge Boys and I gathered in Dad's cabin on Air Force One. At Dad's request, the Oaks sang 'Amazing Grace.' It was a touching moment; Mary and I wiped tears from our eyes as we both sensed the impending defeat."

That, Shakers, is a George W. Bush anecdote about listening to the Oak Ridge Boys sing "Amazing Grace" on the presidential airplane of the United States of America just before his dad lost the presidency after one term.

If I didn't know better, I wouldn't believe George W. Bush and I grew up on the same planet.
