Greatest Liberal Book Title Ever
Charles Pierce should sell a great many copies of his book
, Idiot America, subtitled How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free.
Isn't that just a perfect title, encapsulating the real attitude of the left towards America? And why are we "idiots"? Because we don't endorse the liberal program. BTW, note where Pierce gained his fame:
Enter Charlie Pierce, whose wickedly funny and incisive observations first wormed their way into my brain when I started listening years ago to NPR's game show, "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me." In his new book, Idiot America, Pierce eviscerates this Epoch of “Dignitude” and bemoans the mainstreaming of the American Crank. Taking on the likes of would-be soapbox stars such as Jonah Goldberg (whose Liberal Fascism Pierce describes as having been "written with a paint roller"), the founders of the Creation Museum with its dressage saddle-wearing dinosaur, and the defendants in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District, Charlie Pierce pulls away the curtain on the selling techniques that have duped the country into its current state of imbecility.
Yep, another America-hating crank who got his big start on NPR.
