I was alerted to another gem from Bush in the Brian Williams interview
. When asked about reading The Stranger
, Bush explained: "I was in Crawford and I said I was looking for a book to read and Laura said you oughtta try Camus, I also read three Shakespeare's."
It's as if Jethro from The Beverly Hillbillies
were President--not a real hillbilly, which I wouldn't much begrudge someone, but a Hollywood spoof of a hillbilly.
