What I'm Reading

The Rebellion of Ronald Reagan: A History of the End of the Cold War

Reading these books and others on the Reagan years, I have come to believe that he was a better President than I gave him credit for at the time, but nowhere near the demi-god of today's rightwing mythology, which is actually ironic as both books contain good accounts of strong criticism of Reagan by the conservatives of his time.

Shrub: The Short but Happy Political Life of George W. Bush

George W. Bush is promising to do for the rest of the country what he has done for Texas. There it is.
If only we had listened to Molly Ivins.
