Summer Reading: Bushie weighs in

This week, fellow Jersey native Jon Stewart noted on The Daily Show that the President's summer reading included The Stranger by French existentialist Albert Camus.

I don't know about you, but when I can't remember what L'etranger is all about, I think of the Cure song, and its chorus: "I am the Stranger/killing an Arab."

Did Bushie think that the influential existential masterpiece was about war in Iraq? Was he reading the book to bolster his policies? If so, he sure got more than he bargained for.

The master of the idiot surreal tackles existentialism. Sacre bleu!
