Well, the NYTimes has a new bestseller. And what a bestseller it is.
“The Savage Nation: Saving America From the Liberal Assault on Our Borders, Language and Culture” is riding high… but why?
It’s essentially a regurgitation of freely accessible NewsMax collumns.
It’s essentially nothing more than calling everyone from the Clintons to Daschle communist traitors who love terrorists with little more than a few illogical invectives to go on.
If he was funny, I could understand. I mean, Michael Moore is little more than a demagouge who invents facts to serve his critiques, but he’s at least amusing somtimes. Savage is, at best, just utterly incompetant at expressing what should be rather simple thoughts. When I actually sat down to read his stuff, it was almost as bad as reading that Timecube guy or any AOL’s homepage. I mean, even if he were conservative line (which he isn’t), I can’t see how any conservative could think that this guy was a smart, articulate spokesman. Even if you agree completely with his points, you have to admit that this is probably the most scatterbrained, incoherent way to make them. Maybe he’s better on the radio. But in print, it’s just a disaster. Witness these train wrecks of word-association collumns:
Are Jewish Liberals to Blame?
Good Versus Evil
From a Melting Pot to a Chamber Pot
If this is really “a man with the courage to say what millions of conservative Americans have been thinking but are afraid to say out loud” then it is all the worse for those conservative Americans, because what they are “afraid to say” is nothing more than a bunch of factually ridiculous and shameful diatribes.
But then, I must be part of a cabal to enforce “mandatory suicide for sick seniors” to even think of criticizing this “brash, passionate and smart” (official MSNBC blurb for his new show) genius.
