Since the world learned that Monica had given the president, among many other gifts, a copy of Oy Vey! The Things They Say! A Book of Jewish Wit, sales of the compendium have skyrocketed (from Number 153,339 to Number 1,643-and-rising on the Amazon.com sales charts). This could be a better marketing tool than Oprah's book club! In that spirit THE SCRAPBOOK would like to point out that, according to lists provided to Starr by the White House, the bookshelves in the president's private study hold at least two other volumes worthy of the bestseller lists: Energy in the Executive by Terry Eastland and George Washington: A Biography by Noemie Emery. Both are contributors to THE WEEKLY STANDARD and, perforce, members in good standing of the vast rightwing conspiracy.
