Yesterday a friend of a friend pointed to a quote from The Reagan Diaries (HarperCollins), which went on sale 53 weeks ago: “A moment I’ve been dreading. George [Bush Sr.] brought his ne’er-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political [son] who lives in Florida — the one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I’ll call [Michael] Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they’ll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work.” — entry dated 5.17.86.
