‘Tis the Season, Far Too Long

The Department of Education announced an official White House site called “Season of Stories,” in which the White House presents stories and read-alouds, some by senior White House officials. Not only that, continued the press release, but “At the same site, every weeknight at 8:00 p.m., bedtime stories will be read by administration officials.” Secretary Paige even reads “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”–as Freud says, there are no mistakes.

I understand the following stories will be presented later this month:

President Bush: The Very Hungry Budget Deficit Caterpillar

Secretary Rumsfeld: Dude, Where’s My Weapons of Mass Destruction?

John Ashcroft: I Know What You Read Last Summer

Colin Powell: Kick it Up a Notch: The Protracted War Cookbook

Cheney: Babar and the Insider Contract
