Bloggish: ...but Jimmy Carter is Smarter

As you may have recently heard, President Bush chose l'Etranger as part of his summer reading and discussed the novel with talk show host his Press Secretary, Tony Snow.

Here's a portion of the transcript of the dinner conversation:

Snow: Well, Camus can do, but Sartre is smartre!

Jenna Bush [laughing]: So original.

Laura Bush: How droll!

George: Yeah, well, Scooby Doo can doo-doo, but Jimmy Carter is... smarter.
