The Gawker Perspective on Laura Bush's New Book


"The New York Times' Anahad O'Connor got his grubby little grey-lady hands on a copy "at a bookstore" right now and spilled the beans. And while it's no Overton Window, it has its fair share of thrills! Speak to us from the heart, Anahad: What's in the book?

Intrigue! In the sexy thriller part of Spoken from the Heart, the Bushes and their staff are poisoned, which she knows happened because "They all became mysteriously sick, and the president was bedridden for part of the trip," and also, "several high-profile poisonings" happened, in the past. Hmmm.

Romance! Laura loves her husband, and will defend all his decisions, like the time he "responded" to Hurricane Katrina by flying over the resulting devastation, in his plane: "'He did not want one single life to be lost because someone was catering to the logistical requirements of a president,' she says about the Katrina fly-over." Hmmm."

Etc. etc. and so forth...from
