The Bush dyslexicon: observations on a national disorder

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
First edition.
The Bush Dyslexicon is a raucously funny ride--whether it's Bush envisioning "a foreign-handed foreign policy" or Miller skewering vociferous cultural conservatives like William Bennett and Lynne Cheney for their silence on Bush's particular "West Texas version of Ebonics." But there is also a strong undercurrent of outrage. Only because our elections have become so dependent on television and its emphatic emptiness, says Miller, could a man of such sublime and complacent ignorance assume the highest office in the land.

display_description It seems like too easy a target, but Miller, with the deftly trenchant wit that always distinguishes his writing, uses the blunders and malapropisms of George W. Bush to make a larger point about the way Americans elect their presidents
