Tina Brown on Bush Library: "This Is Going to Be ... Very Interesting."
Several SMU items of note today, because we'd be remiss if we went the day without mentioning something said yesterday on MSNBC. After the jump, Daily Beast Tina Brown's appearance last night on The Rachel Maddow Show, which was guest-hosted by Alison Stewart. The reason we mention it? Brown talks about President Bush's obsession with his legacy -- by which she means his library, which will, of course, wind up on the SMU campus, along with his so-called policy institute, about which he spoke to CNN last week. Alas, says Brown as she ticks off the disasters under the lame-duck president's watch: "One can only think that that library is almost like a Halloween House of Horrors." More fun and yuks after the jump. --Robert Wilonsky
