Dick Cheney Sells His Memoir

225px-Richard_Cheney_2005_official_portrait.jpgFormer Vice President Dick Cheney has sold his memoir for a deal that’s “likely worth at least $2 million,” according to the AP. The book is scheduled for publication in early 2011, a few months after George W. Bush‘s memoir hits bookstores.

While writing, the former VP will collaborate with his daughter, Liz Cheney. The memoir will be published by the Threshold Editions at Simon & Schuster, an imprint edited by Republican political consultant and former Cheney adviser, Mary Matalin.

Here’s a statement from Cheney: “I’m persuaded there are a lot of interesting stories that ought to be told … I want my grandkids, 20 or 30 years from now, to be able to read it and understand what I did, and why I did it.”
