George Allen 'Writing' Book Seemingly Targeted At 8-Year-Old Boys
Likely GOP nominee for president in 2008 and self-loathing Virginian Jew George Allen has landed hisself a fancy book deal, following in the footsteps of his idol, Ken Layne. It is titled The Triumph of Character: What Washington Can Learn from the World of Sports, so readers should expect an aesthetic mash-up of Matt Christopher and Leni Riefenstahl.
Here's the publisher's press release describing the book that Mark Salter or whoever will be ghostwriting for Allen:
In The Triumph of Character, Allen brings together two all-American passions—politics and sports—and reveals what Washington could learn from the enduring principles found in athletic competition and team sports. Having spent the better part of his life with one foot in both the world of sports and the world of politics, Allen will draw parallels and contrasts between the two arenas. Using his own engaging and entertaining personal stories, Allen will illustrate how “characters with character” in the meritocracy of sports can provide principled, competitive examples of the ways to surmount challenges facing America.
Blah blah blah, we all know he's just going to write about how the blacks look like jungle monkeys for a couple hundred pages.
