George ‘Doublya’ Bush Hits YouTube to Plug His New Book

After a long period of post-presidential silence, George W. Bush is finally speaking out. He went on YouTube to plug his upcoming book “Decision Points.” You know, ’cause he’s “The Decider.”

Love how he says this isn’t going to be a typical memoir about his life–it’s going to be an inside look at his presidency. Then he says he’ll start the book when he quit drinking at age 40. So it is about his life, just not about his wildly privileged upbringing. It starts at a low point ordinary folks can relate to, instead of the first 40 years of running around with daddy and friends’ money.

A pretty smart PR decision actually. Look at you Decider! Too bad you didn’t run the country like you’re running your literary career.
