Read all about it -- Rick Perry, Republican presidential candidate, is coming soon in another book. The Texas governor and newest presidential candidate to enter the race is the subject of a forthcoming book from Henry Holt and Company titled, "Adios Mofo: Why Rick Perry Will Make America Miss George W. Bush."
Holt, an imprint of Metropolitan books, says it will publish "Adios" in early 2012. James C. Moore, co-author of the bestseller "Bush's Brain" will co-write the book with Texas political consultant Jason Stanford.
Loathers of Perry, a God-talking, loose-tongued rock-star type politician, will likely be among the first buyers of the book. The publisher says the book presents Perry as an "idealogue wtih scant interest or success in governing."
The title comes from an incident in 2005 when the governor, unaware the microphone was still on during a television interview with a Houston reporter, made an embarrassing slip of the tongue on air.
Perry has already made headlines for gaffes since he officially announced his candidacy for the Republican party's 2012 nomination last weekend. Tuesday, Perry suggested the integrity of Fed Chairman Ben Barnanke.
Perry suggested that if Bernanke were to initiate another round of quantatitive easing -- buying U.S. Treasury bonds to push more money into the struggling economy -- he would be committing a treasonous act.
"If (Bernanke) prints more money between now and the election, I dunno what ya'll would do to him in Iowa but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas," Perry said. "Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous -- or treasonous in my opinion."
But on Wednesday Perry said the off-hand comment got him into trouble.
"I got in trouble about talking about the Federal Reserve ... I got lectured about that yesterday," said Perry, during a breakfast at Saint Anselm College while on a campaign tour in Bedford, N.H.
Random House's Crown imprint is also releasing a book on Perry. "Rick Perry and his Eggheads" will be released next week as an eBook. Written by Sasha Issenberg, the book is according to the publisher an inside account of Perry's successful 2006 re-election campaign for Texas governor.
The eBook is based on Issenberg's "The Victory Lab," scheduled for publication by Crown in the fall of 2012.
Perry has had success with his own book, a first-person, 240-page account titled, "Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America from Washington." Released by Little, Brown and Company in November, 2010, the book has a foreword written by Newt Gingrich.
"FED UP! lays out the truth of how far our Washington politicians have driven this nation off track," wrote Michael Reagan in a book endorsement. "It's refreshing to read that at least one of our leaders understood what my dad always knew. The Government works for the people and not the other way around."
