Bush has read "60 books" so far this year?
According to US News & World Report, George Bush and Karl Rove are in a competition to see who can read the most books in 2006, and so far, Bush says he has read 60 books.
Perhaps by "read" Bush means "spotted out of the corner of my eye while walking past the Presidential Library."
Or maybe by "book" he means "comic book" or "match book."
As Bob Cesca says, "I honestly don't believe he's read one book ever in his entire life, much less 60. Furthermore, how can his feeble monkey brain possibly retain or comprehend anything he's reading? Does he look at the pages and just see a series of squiggly lines? I think he does. Why else would he say the following, while showing German newspaper reporter Kai Diekmann the Oval Office on May 5, 2006: 'That's George Washington, the first president, of course. The interesting thing about him is that I read three - three or four books about him last year. Isn't that interesting?' He admitted to reading three (or four - he's not sure about that either) books about George Washington, yet the only knowledge he could pass along to the German reporter was that...he read three (or four) books about George Washington."
If Bush is actually reading all those books, Cesca says, "I'd rather that he simply keep reading instead of thinking of new ways to screw us all or, as we learned this week, devising clever new fart jokes. Sadly, I think he has enough free time for all three."
