The Washington Examiner solicited book recommendations that talking heads, including many of my favorite bloggers, have for President Bush. You know, maybe something more consequential than Salt: A World History. I have a few ideas myself…
Squandered Victory by Larry Diamond. Bush ought to know (a) just how bad he f**ked up in Iraq and (b) what he can do about it.
Terrorism, Freedom, and Security by Philip Heymann. Hey, Bush, you know that war on terror you started? Here's why it's wrong.
Top Heavy by Edward Wolff. This is for when Bush decides he actually gives a damn about wealth inequality.
The Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins. So Bush knows just how completely wrong intelligent design is.
Biological Exuberance by Bruce Bagemihl (hat-tip Andy). Dubya, you know those gay folk you hate? Turns out that there are gay animals you ought to be dealing with. James Dobson suggests slaughtering them.
Social Security: The Phony Crisis by Dean Baker and Mark Weisbrot. The Bush plan's dead already, but this'll destroy the corpse.
Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. He has to have something fun, and Gladwell always delivers.
