1st, Signed Edition of George W Bush's book sells for $356

Hmm...I wonder how many copies he signed. Should be a pretty good futures collectible, if there is one.
This boring but highly edifying description of Dubya was written by non other than his own communications director, Karen Hughes.

Should I try to buy a copy of this hot collectible, or invest a little more and purchase the 16" bronze statue of Dubya in his flight suit.

Egads Huramph! Look at this, I can buy a first edition unsigned for $2 + $3.50 shipping on His signature means nothing to me anyways... Any more than his words, that are parroted by the corporate media. I believe that this is the best investment, but will try to keep my mind open for now...

The original ghost writer for this so called autobiography was Mickey Herskowitz, but the Neoconservatives didn't like many of the details of Dubyas life, and promptly replaced him with Karen Hughes.

—a longtime Houston newspaper columnist—has ghostwritten or co-authored autobiographies of a broad spectrum of famous people, including Reagan adviser Michael Deaver, Mickey Mantle, Dan Rather and Nixon cabinet secretary John B. Connally. Bush's 1999 comments to Herskowitz were made over the course of as many as 20 sessions together. Eventually, campaign staffers—expressing concern about things Bush had told the author that were included in the manuscript—pulled the project, and Bush campaign officials came to Herskowitz's house and took his original tapes and notes. Bush communications director Karen Hughes then assumed responsibility for the project, which was published in highly sanitized form as A Charge to Keep.
