The New Ron Paul Autobiography -- Whether You Want It Or Not
It's what you've been waiting for -- the Ron Paul autobiography!!
Wait, you mean you haven't been waiting for it? Neither have we, really.
Nevertheless, the New York Observer, scrolling behind the subscription-only barrier of the Publishers' Marketplace website, reported today that Paul has signed on to write a "memoir of his career in politics, revealing his encounters with the major political figures over the last thirty years, and those events that shaped him and made him the man and politician he is."
No money was announced, although it was described as a "major" deal.
The Revolution: A Memoir will be a follow-up to Paul's best-selling The Revolution: A Manifesto, which you probably also didn't read.
We're sure there's an audience out there eager to read the tale of a fightin' gynecologist from Brazoria County who wants to take the country back to the 19th Century, but we don't think we'll be part of it.
We look forward to seeing summaries, though, of such chapters as "Rosa Parks & Mother Theresa: Impress Me First, Then We'll See About Giving You a Medal," "Thank God for Brazoria County Voters" and "I Hope This Book Outsells My Earlier Book, Ten Myths About Paper Money: And One Myth About Paper Gold."
