Chapter 6, page 68: "At the time, the education commissioner was recommended by the state board of education, but the Governor had to approve. My staff and I were involved in the selection process, which resulted in the naming of my first choice, Mike Moses. ... He had earned a reputation as an innovator, someone who was not afraid to try new things. I liked what he had done in Lubbock, where he advocated early intervention for at-risk students, and established an alternative boot-camp school staffed by drill instructors to try to redirect the lives of students with discipline problems."

Blink. Blink. Whut. Blink.

[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.]
