of George W. Bush--and allow you to seen them in a whole
new light. If you have read _Boxed In_ or the essay
Miller contributed to _Watching Television_, "Deride and Conquer"
(Todd Gitlin, ed.), then you know what I'm talking about..

It's a fairly representative sample, consisting of Bush's own words,
punctuated by Miller's commentary.
