“If I had to choose, Laura’s. I heard a little bit about it this morning and I kind of want to read the part where she thinks she and the president were poisoned. ”

“Laura’s would be more interesting, George’s would be more comical.”

“Laura’s because I think historically any successful man does need the partnership of a strong woman who believes in his philosophy, and in who he is, and thereby complements the leadership of a man.”

Are you sure they are copperheads? We thought we had baby copperheads in our garage once but were told that black snakes are more brownish in color when they're young. Either way I stayed out of that garage. I have a bad snake phobia.

I already know whats in the books: Bush's book, paraphrased, "I'm stupid." Laura's book, paraphrased, "I'm with stupid."

I really hope that they don't really have to read one or the other.

With these books coming out, there is no better time to be illiterate! If I want to read a book about killing someone with a car, I would read Ted Kennedy's book. If I want a book about coke, I would read Rick James's book as both of these books would be better reads than the Bush's books

Neither, I rarely have time for fiction, unless I'm on a plane. Then I prefer action/adventure/historical...

Team Obama apparently feels threatened by Laura's book. Organizing for America has hijacked her web address.

uhhh tom, speaking of creepy avatars?

also, did you just see "Ghost Writer"? Cause I did and it was good. Not awesome, but good

also, Copperheads are way more interesting than Bushes.

I haven't found any snakes yet on my new country property. LOTS OF SKUNKS THOUGH! Double digits at least since I moved in this year. Most were road kill and a couple were shot by my neighbors. Live ones have been as close to my front door as a couple hundred feet chasing each other! eww...

Doesn't that just make you swell up with pride, beholding the dignity of your president?

Hard to believe but I still have an open mind about George and Laura.

Maybe he stepped in a pile when he took office and he lacked the experience to see what was happening around him.

Maybe I am naive about the Bush family.

Cheney, Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, and the rest of them you can toss in the toilet.
