No, because there wouldn't be anything in there of value for me to read.

I don't mean that in a he's-f*cking-stupid way, mind you. I just don't care that much for him, or his ideology, or really anything that he has done. At the current moment, I wouldn't even read a book by Obama because there simply isn't anything of value there for me. I'd be more interested in reading a book by Lindsey Graham, in all honesty.

Why would I read something about the conservative mind? I know it doesn't exist! Ha-ha.

Here are ex-politicians with books that are/will/would be worth reading; Jean Chretien, Paul Martin, Bill Clinton, Stephane Dion, Boris Tadic, Gordon Brown, Stephen Harper, Jean Charest, Jimmy Carter, Vladimir Putin, Bob Rae, Gary Doer, and many others.

I would probably read it because it would be mostly crayon drawings and stuff anyway so it would be a quick read.

Lol, I never even noticed; the list has other current politicians as well, it just slipped my mind. But, it does work out quite well, doesn't it?

Yeah in all honesty, I would read it for this very reason.

Depends who by... Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and Hunter S. Thompson's autobiographies are awesome.

Amen. Especially when "value" is the goal.

Jimmy Carter: The ONLY guy with two books in the Osama Bin Laden reading list.
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

Just have to say vitage volkov I agree 100 percent
the most important source for muslim Arabs:

"And thereafter We [Allah] said to the Children of Israel: 'Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd'.".

- Qur'an 17:104 -

Any sincere muslim must recognize the Land they call "Palestine" as the Jewish Homeland, according to the book considered by muslims to be the most sacred word and Allah's ultimate revelation.

Probably not, for a start he lacks the intelligence and education to do so. Such a book would be written for him, and would simply be easily discredited lies.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Well come on... is it really all bush's fault...

i think dick cheney was running the country for the past 8 years... bush was just the face and the voice carrying out the message of a bad cabinet.

But i am sure you guys will tell me how dumb of theory it is.

George Bush doesn't have a perspective. He's not a smart guy. He got ahead in life because he was rich and his father was powerful. He got by in politics because of his charisma and right-wing policies at a time when it was convenient (after 9/11). Everything he says and does is the result of political analysts telling him what's best to do for his career. In reading his book, we'd only see the handiwork of his editor and other help he acquired for the task, in addition to adding to his overwhelming and undeserved wealth. Why would I do that?
