George Bush reading Camus..? come on guys

Details of President Bush’s summer holiday reading reach The Daily’s news room. Silence descended on the usual cacophony of chimp noises, typewriters and tapping telex machines as it emerged that the President is reading The Stranger by Albert Camus.

Some people, such as Crooks and Liars, have suggested that the President may not really be capable of reading such a book. We at the Daily would never be so cynical.

In the trial of the main character in the book, his prosecution focuses on how he does not cry at his mother’s funeral. This is seen as more important than the death of an Arab. There’s a lesson in there somewhere, but we’re all a little too shell-shocked to think about what that is.
