Seven Figure Deal Struck On Bush Coloring Book
Crawford Texas After months of shopping his memoirs and searching for the correct publisher, Dana Perino announced today that George Bush had made a deal with Rupert Murdoch's publishing house, HarperCollins for an undisclosed amount. But sources close to the White House confirm that is in fact a seven-figure deal. Bob Woodward was given unprecedented access once again for an exclusive interview with the Bushs.

He is so excited about this deal, said Laura Bush to Bob Woodward. George was worried that if he didnt write this book himself, and instead used a ghostwriter, the late night comedians would be merciless.

And if I time this right, said George, obviously excited. Itll come out around the same time as my libury. Hahaha. And you know, its not JUST a coloring book; its also a mem-u-ar, a mem-er-r a history of my White House days.
Here, look at this, what do you see? asked George pointing to a page of light and dark blue swirls. Thats Katrina, remember that? That was a storm I think it was on a Tuesday. And this here, pointing to a picture of light and dark blue swirls. Thats wat-er-board-ing. Thats not torture you know Well, thats all I got so far, but you can tell its gonna be big real big.

Thanks again for your time, Bob, said Laura. Were very busy now, but were so glad to have you write about this. Its about time people started taking Georges intellect seriously.

2. But, if it's blue swirls...
...it's pre-colored?

There's a real meta joke in there somewhere.....

Oh, of course. Because if he wrote it himself, the comedians would have no ammunition :eyes:

14. heh-heh!
Speaking of Laura Bush, can you imagine having to sleep with that retarded monkey every night, and to actually bear his children? Knowing how badly he has shafted the human race, she still choses to climb into bed with that slug. I mean she is not a bad looking woman and could have done much better than him, but she saw the sliminess as an attractive point, I guess.

"Hey Laura, come on over here, I want you to experience first hand what I plan on doing to the country...heh-heh."

"Oh you big stud, does that mean what I think it means?"

"That's right sugar plum, no KY this time either!"

"Oh, George...................!"
