Sneak Preview of Bush's Book

News Item: The decider has decided to pen a book... or as Comrade E.B. Misfit remarked, "The correct word is 'crayon.'" The first linked article above notes:
In contrast to the traditional blow-by-blow presidential memoir, George Bush's tome, provisionally entitled Decision Points, will describe how he took on 12 key political and personal decisions, including the invasion of Iraq, his response to Hurricane Katrina, running for president, and giving up alcohol. "I want people to understand the environment in which I was making decisions," Bush said. "I want people to get a sense of how decisions were made and I want people to understand the options that were placed before me."
Now being a world-famous, internationally respected blogger has its perks... and never more so than in this case. The G.W. Bush Lieberry has granted me exclusive rights to pre-publish Chapter 3 in its entirety. Prepare yourself for a stunning glimpse into a mind of presidential caliber.

CHAPTER 3: Wherein I Grapple With Uncertainty

Then there was that time I got "tails," but I'm uncertain what i I wuz grapplin with that time. I think it mite have been over Saddam having a smoking gun, or somethig liek that. or mebe it was over which one ends in 'n' and which one with 'q,' cause I never did get that one strait. I like George Strait too! Did I ever tell you why? well, both his names is good: George and Strait! I wouddent like him if his name was "George Gay!" Heh, heh, get it? George Gay... Heh, heh, heh! Sometimes I crack myself up!

The End (of Chapter 3)
I, for one, am holding my breath to read the entire text from beginning to end. I think suffocation would probably be preferable.

Followup: The G.W. Bush Lieberry and the publisher wish to make it clear that this excerpt has not undergone careful proofreading and editing yet, and that minor editorial changes will undoubtedly be made prior to publication.

"Decision Points" does sound vaguely like a connect the dots book which would be appropriate.
