Submitted by Blake on Wed, 06/18/2008 - 07:34

This Is No Doubt the funniest author interview ever published.

Sadly there is no audio available. "Well, it was a great pleasure talking to you. I doubt that."

McCain just finished writing a flattering children’s picture book about her father’s life [no Ron Reagan she], set to come out just as her father accepts the Republican nomination in September.
