today i turned off the tv when bush appeared onscreen, and picked up the eggers book instead. this is a passage from what i read:
he speaks like a president, not always authoritative or anything but he can form sentences, complex sentences with beginnings and ends, subordinate clauses--you can hear his semicolons! he knows the answers to questions. he knows acronyms and the names of foreign leaders, their deputies. it is heartening, it makes our country look smart, and this is an important thing, something we have too long been without.
no need to mention to whom he's referring.
(hint: the book was published in 2000.)
