One of the best thing about wring a book is sitting around and fantasizing about the list of whom you’d ask to write a blurb. With any book about a Texas Republican with presidential aspirations, that list includes former Democratic operative, author and current CNN commentator Paul Begala.
When Jim Moore and I finished the manuscript, I immediately called in a favor to get Begala to read Adios, Mofo. Today, he offered this blurb:
“Rick Perry is the perfect candidate for those who thought George W. Bush was just too dang cerebral. And Adios, Mofo is the perfect guide to his record, his rhetoric and his remarkable hair. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll vote.”
This isn’t the kind of big deal that everyone will think is a big deal. But if you’re reading this blog, you get it. To quote our Vice President, this is a big f*cking deal.
