Hey y'all, Bill Clinton is gonna be at Barnes and Noble today

Posted By on Thu, Nov 10, 2011 at 10:27 AM

Bill Clinton is going to be signing copies of his new book at the Barnes and Noble on Moreland today at 12:30. What else is there to say? PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON is going to be at a strip mall near you. Close your eyes, put on Pavement as loud as possible, and pretend that we're in the greatest decade ever and that the world isn't falling apart quite yet.

What about the book? Since you asked, New York Times critic Michio Kakutani says that it's a few books in one: "It’s a lucid one-man rebuttal of the Tea Party’s anti-government agenda. A series of shrewd talking points for Democrats trying to hold on to the White House and battling for control of Congress in the midst of a sour economy and growing voter discontent. A self-serving reminder of the prosperity the country enjoyed during Mr. Clinton’s tenure in the White House, meant to burnish his legacy. And a practical set of proposals — some borrowed and some new, some innovative and some highly sketchy — for restoring economic growth and creating jobs." Sounds stressful. Probably best to stick to the "Remember how sweet it was when I was President" chapters.

So there you have it, put on your favorite blue dress and head over to your favorite big box book retailer and get yourself a copy signed by the coolest dude ever. On a side note, you will be my personal hero if you get him to sign as "Dirty Bill Clinton" or any version of any lyric from Goodie Mob, for that matter.
