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.

Yeah, right.

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."

nice use of the photo!

60 books in 8 months!?! That's a book every four days! I've only read 25, or 26, books of poetry and poetry crit. And only a handfull cover to cover.

He's a lying sack of hammers.

EWD: You really think Bush would lie? When has he ever lied before? And when has he ever done anything as intelligent as a sack of hammers?

He colored them as he was reading them.

Jack: Do you know how long it would take to actually color 60 coloring books? Bush would have had to do nothing but that for the past eight months...

You guys crack me up. You publicly criticize Bush for being a dolt, you probably never read anything but the comics and liberal blogs, then get pissed that he's read 60 books.

I'm at least honest. That's about 54 more than I've read this year. And that's only because I'm in a book club.
