Not like Harry Potter, but...

Straight from the lips of my UPS guy. He says they've all been told to expect to work late tomorrow to meet the demand for the new tell-all book from Scott McClellan, Bush's former spokesman. They are comparing it to the push to meet the demand for Harry Potter, although not quite as feverish.

From a PR perspective, it's been funny to watch the reaction. They've trotted out the well-worn "disgruntled former employee," and the hints that he's trying to cash in. They've also added a newer defense: that they are "sad" and "puzzled" as if Mr. M has gone crazy.

What would be crazy would be if he actually believed the stuff he said when he said it. That would be sad.
