Tenet's tell-all and Gore's polemic

The Washington Post reports that former CIA director George Tenet takes some shots at Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, and Paul Wolfowitz (who's made himself an easy target) in his soon-to-be-released memoir, At the Center of the Storm. With Tenet's publicity tour kicking off on "60 Minutes" on April 29, I'm sure HarperCollins thinks this tell-all will be a slam dunk.*

The Post also says that Al Gore's forthcoming book, The Assault on Reason, "is a polemic about how the enemies of reason -- using fear and secrecy and blind faith and cronyism -- are doing a number on democracy in this country." No doubt after denouncing Bush along these lines, Gore will make the ironic case that the courts and the UN must impose measures to save us from certain death by global warming.

* Sorry, couldn't resist the pun.
