Chapter 3, page 23: "What Texans Can Dream, Texans Can Do."

That's the title of this chapter. We're moving on from the glimmering nostalgia of Bush's Texas childhood to the gritty nostalgia of Bush's Texas adulthood.

So far, on this first page of the chapter, he's already said Ann Richards was made of yuck and Kay Bailey Hutchison is the best. I'm paraphrasing, but only slightly.

[From George Bush's A Charge to Keep, gifted to me by Deeky, because he hates me. In the US, all people who plan to run for president write a shitty book. (Some are less shitty than others, by which I mean the Democrats' books.) A Charge to Keep was George W. Bush's shitty I-wanna-be-president book, published in 1999. I am blogging one random quote per page every day until I have either made my way through the book or lost it behind a couch.]
