Next on True Crime: The Bush White House!!!
Yep, you guessed it. The title is full of sarcasm. How did you know?
So I was in a book store earlier today and ended up staring in awe at the “True Crime” section. Well…it wasn’t really awe. Nothing I saw there surprised me. It was just completely ridiculous. There on the top shelf of the section all facing outward were the following four books: The Way of the World: A Story of Truth and Hope in an Age of Extremism by Ron Suskind, What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception by Scott McClellan, The War Within: A Secret White House History 2006-2008 by Bob Woodward, and Your Government Failed You by Richard A. Clarke. As you’ll see from the descriptions of the books in the links (or just from the titles), these are all anti-Bush books…in the “True Crime” section of the book store…not in “Politics,” “Social Studies,” or other categories in which political books are usually found…but “True Crime,” a section usually reserved for books about, you know, actual crimes.
Now toward the bottom of this section of shelving I did see a few political books that looked like they were out of place, and I circled around to the other side where the “Social Studies” category was and found all of the rest of the political books. But these books weren’t misplaced. They were on the top shelf and all facing outward. They were, in fact, the featured books of the “True Crime” section. Apparently the book store has gone from simply selling books to pushing a political agenda as well. Like I said, though…I’m not surprised.
