Whither Bruce Bartlett?

 

Remember him? He was the supply-side conservative think tanker who lost his job for opposing Harriet Miers’s appointment, and also for penning a book whose title openly compared Bush to Reagan (Bush lost). Bruce checked in with us yesterday to send along a Publishers Weekly press release. You can call off the guilty liberal pledge drive. He’s going to be just fine:

After The New York Times reported the news of Bartlett’s firing, Doubleday (which is pubbing Impostor) quickly bumped the book’s release date from April 4 to February 28. The imprint has also upped the book’s print run from 30,000 copies to 50,000.

So much for the rewards of loyalty.
