The New York Slimes has panned "Bubba's" book My Lies, I mean My Life. Said the Slimes,
"The book, which weighs in at more than 950 pages, is sloppy, self-indulgent and often eye-crossingly dull — the sound of one man prattling away, not for the reader, but for himself and some distant recording angel of history.

My Life reads like a messy pastiche of everything that Mr. Clinton ever remembered and wanted to set down in print; he even describes the time he got up at 4 a.m. to watch the inaugural ceremonies for Nigeria's new president on TV. There are endless litanies of meals eaten, speeches delivered, voters greeted and turkeys pardoned."
In other words, a real page turner. This is only a small, small sample of what the Slimes had to say. Go read the article for more.

This really surprised me. I figured the Slimes would hail this as the second coming of War And Peace or The Dark Tower, Stephen King's masterpiece. Go read them, it's an awesome story. But that's for another post. But this Michiko Kakutani just didn't like the book.

Here we see two pictures of candidate waffles' great-grandfather during the Civil War. A little know fact, Kerry's great-grandfather was a senator during Lincoln's presidency. As you can see, taking both sides of an issue is in Kerry's blood. Historic fact, these pictures were taking just after Al Gore's great-grandfather invented the electric microphone. I guess inventing revolutionary things is in his blood as well.
