More Funny Things From Inside the Bush Administration!


You have to love these presidential tell-alls. In addition to the revelations we’ve already written about, former speechwriter Matt Latimer’s book also discloses that Donald Rumsfeld wanted to edit his own “Wika-wakka” (a.k.a. Wikipedia) page, that Karl Rove spread a rumor that one of Obama’s potential vice-presidents had beaten his wife, and that despite backing a constitutional ban on gay marriage, George W. Bush once quarreled over a speech because he didn’t “want to tell some gay kid in the audience that he can’t get married.” Wait, did we describe these as “funny”? We meant odd and disturbing. [HuffPo]
