If you’re in a bookstore this weekend and hear alleged adults giggling like a Code Pink party when the cake finally arrives, it’s just these clowns re-arranging the shelves:

The special relationship is being turned on its head, with US peace activists following the lead of their British counterparts to launch a campaign to reshelve George Bush’s new memoir, Decision Points, “where it belongs”: in the crime section of their local bookshops.

Inspired by a British campaign which saw Tony Blair’s autobiography, A Journey, appearing under crime, horror and even fantasy in UK bookshops, the protest blog Waging Nonviolence is urging its supporters to “Move Bush’s Book Where It Belongs”, and post pictures of the autobiography in its new location on a campaign Facebook page.

According to the campaign organiser Jasmine Faustino, Bush’s memoir “defends several of the criminal policies that he implemented during his time in office, including the invasion of Iraq and the use of waterboarding”. She calls on readers to “reshelve the book to where it really belongs”, and “take a picture of your ‘mission accomplished’”.

There’s actually the occasional funny comment on their Facebook page about how this has prompted some people to give the book a read.

The bookstore-bound BDS left might as well put Bill Clinton’s book in the “traitor” section while they’re in the store, because Clinton said Bush’s book was “well written and interesting.”
