The Bush Dyslexicon is a raucously funny ride. But there's no mistaking Miller's serious point. Only because our elections have become so dependent on television and its emphatic emptiness, says Miller, could a man of such sublime and conplacent ignorance assume the highest office in the land.

Someday he will think before talking, but that's not now. Some of the best oops Bush ever spoke.

Barbara Ehrenreich calls this: "simply the finest, most comprehensive, and masterfully annotated collection of Bushisms to date: a clear reminder to never "misunderestimate" the ignorance, intellectual lazAiness, and sheer meanness of our first unelected president."

Studs Terkel says: "This is a work of outrage. Never has the native intelligeence of the 'ordinary' American been so assaulted as it's been by the recent presidential 'election,' and Mark Crispin has sounded the tocsin of revolt. Unless we are suffering from a national Alzheimer's disease, this book will give us heart and voice, as well as a laugh or two along the way."

Classic shrub. 'Nuff said.

A book of observations about George W. Bush and his communication blunders and methods. A facinating study of the man and his rise to the presidency from a media point of view.

Shows Bush's stupidity; Is worth a laugh. Book discusses how people elect officials based on snippets and discusses why this is so scary.
