When publishers announced the forthcoming release of “Adios, Mofo: Why Rick Perry Will Make America Miss George W. Bush” in August, The New York Times ran a notice referring to the book only as a work “with an unprintable title.”

The book, written by “Bush’s Brain” co-author James Moore and Texas political operative Jason Stanford, takes its name from comments Perry made on camera after an interview he apparently didn’t enjoy.

It gives us a chuckle to think the paper of record is too sophisticated to print something Rick Perry said on television. What an obscene man (or just an uptight newspaper)!
