for the week ending 3/10/07:

Jenna Bush, in a rare interview, says her forthcoming book for teens — about a 17-year-old single mother in Panama who is living with HIV — will end with a "call to action."

HarperCollins announces today that it's publishing Bush's Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope this fall.


The president's daughter, 25, says the book is not political. It's aimed at "getting kids thinking and involved," Bush said Monday by phone from Panama, where she has worked since September as an unpaid intern for UNICEF.

With the publication of "Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope," HarperCollins, a subsidiary of News Corporation, is proud to welcome its new imprint, New Reality Books, to the HC family of quality literature and nonfiction.  Karen Hughes, renowned author, former Under Secretary of Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs with the Bush administration and now President of New Reality Books, is thrilled to bring a fresh perspective to the world of nonfiction.  "Just because it's based in fact doesn't mean it has to be 100% accurate," says Mrs. Hughes.  "Because really, life is just a series of personal perceptions."

Under Mrs. Hughes' direction, New Reality Books has already garnered an incredibly exciting catalogue of titles:

Flipping My WHIG, by Karl Rove.  A poignant and revealing memoir by the patriot who put God and country first and who served as the key to unlocking the greatness of George W. Bush.

Everyone Looks Good in Ochre, by Laura Bush. The First Lady of the United States isn't just another pretty face!  Mrs. Bush is a fashion expert, and shares her tips on how to dress to impress everyone from foreign dignitaries to your husband's mother.

Two Birds, One Stone, by Richard B. Cheney.  The Former Vice President and current chair of the department of international affairs at Liberty University provides a step-by-step guide on how to further the country's interests abroad while protecting our interests at home, and still maintain a healthy regard for the principles upon which this country was founded.

I Still Believe in Me, by Judith F. Miller. Ms. Miller brings her formidable reporting expertise, broad-based world views, and longstanding history of volunteerism to a journalism ethics class for female inmates wrongfully imprisoned in the federal penitentiary at Danbury, CT.

Other titles include:

Misunderstood, by Ahmad Chalabi
Muffin Top – My Life as a Fraternal Twin, by Barbara Bush
Fits in Print: Managing a Successful Newspaper, by Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger
Hey Man, Nice ShotTips for the Hunting Enthusiast, by Richard Whittington
Digging in the White House Dirt, by Barney the First Dog

Feh. Like anything of import happened this week. 

The Rude Pundit proffers a bit of advice to the White House regarding a Libby pardon. Roger Ailes (you know which one) finds it a bit difficult to muster the tears for pauvre Scooter Libby. The Kenosha Kid wasted a perfectly good quarter.

Happy Furry Puppy Story Time's Norbizness provides us with the Washington Post Libby verdict editorial that got pulled at the eleventh hour. Carl at Little Green Fascists reacts to the Libby verdict. Pretty much emblematic of the general right wing reaction.

Doghouse Riley at Bats Left Throws Right fisks the "Newt Gingrich, Adulterer Extraordinaire" story.

TBogg introduces us to Mitt Romney's latest addition to his Internet collection. Rising Hegemon's Podiatrist to the stars, Dr. Atta J. Turk, has a photomographical homage to Rudy Ghouliani.

Oh, Mr. Wolcott, how I adore thee. Especially when you set fire to Pammycakes' blatherings. The Editors at The Poor Man Institute turns the fire into a conflagration.

Over at Hoffmania, Ann Coulter gets hers. World O' Crap's maryc is keeping a running tally on the droves of advertisers fleeing the carnage that is Coultergeist's site.

dedalus at Blah3 heaves a heavy sigh and notes that once again, Michelle Malkin is utterly, completely, 100% wrong.

Steve M. at No More Mister Nice Blog puts in an advance order for Mayan priests for President Bush's return from Latin America. 

Bring It On!'s Ken Granlund alerts us to yet another Bush "D-oh!" moment had at the expense of the neglected soldiers at Walter Reed.

Blogenfreude at Agitprop is absolutely addicted to Conservapedia. And really, can you blame him? Pictures of Jesus riding a dinosaur sidesaddle…

This week's winner of "dirty fuckin' mouth" contest is Bitch, Ph.D.! Please come pick up your goddamned, piece-of-shit  trophy.

Uh. Mah. Gah. According to Thers at Whiskey Fire, I'm supposed to feel sorry for Dick Cheney? 

Hey, nobody told me! General J.C. Christian has accepted the position of Internet Director for Michael Savage's presidential campaign. Congratulations, General, you magnificent, heterosexual bastard!

Let the games begin! Brad Altrocket at Sadly, No! has opened up voting for Glenn Reynolds Roboshop Challenge. I recommend donning your astronaut diapers before reading.
