image for President Bush Accepts Post at Yale
Professor George Bush

January 31, 2004 10:15 EDST: WASHINGTON. President George Bush has accepted a teaching post at Yale University to begin in September 2005. In a joint news conference at the White House, Yale President Richard C. Levin announced that President Bush would be teaching a course "The European Literary Tradition" The course will begin with Homer's Iliad, then concentrate on drama, focusing on plays by Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes; Shakespeare, Goethe, Moliere, and Racine; Ibsen, Chekhov, Brecht and Beckett.

When asked by reporters about his literary background, President Bush replied, "I don't read much, but my staff keeps me supplied with lots of good excerpts from "Cliffs Notes" and I own a shelf of real good encyclopedias." When asked about Racine, Bush responded with, "I got a lot of votes in Wisconsin… nice folks down there!"

Informed sources at the White House refused comment on the likelihood of the President becoming available for other duties after the Fall 2004 elections.
