Greil Marcus' imagination, dead at 64.

Marcus imagines a future GWB obit, which adds little to the post-election mood except a healthy dose of bad taste. But the kicker comes right after the article ends:

Greil Marcus is with Sean Wilentz co-editor of just published The Rose & the Briar: Death, Love and Liberty in the American Ballad (Norton); his book Like a Rolling Stone: Bob Dylan at the Crossroads will be published next May by PublicAffairs. He is working on a book about prophecy and American identity.

Which is to say, he's republishing the same book three times. And this book has already been published, first as Invisible Republic and later as That Old, Weird America.
