Overview

For years," Burt Prelutsky says, "the ranks fo the Right were so bereft of amusing people they had to point to William F. Buckley Jr. as their token funnyman. Finally, thank God, P. J. O'Rourke came along. Now he was really funny. I mean, on purpose." So beings the man who invented political incorrectness. In this delightful social commentary and rant on just about everything the Left does that offends him, he brings a biting wit. In 101 shorty, pithy chapters, Prelutsky applies his wit and wisdom to the big issues of the day. To quote him: "So Right-wingers, dig in and enjoy. Liberals, dig in and wise up.""

Although I almost completely agree with Burt Prelutsky in what world view concerns, this book was really disappointing for me. It's a collection of witty comments, pretty caustic and, yes, humorous, but after reading some few of them I just got tired of it. I don't exactly know why. What I read there reflects what I think, so I'm not able to get a clear explanation. Perhaps it's the fact that, more than voicing my concern/anger about the suicidal liberal politics, I am looking for practical ways to challenge it. Well, there are no suggestions of that kind in this book. Nor is there some kind of elaboration of thinking. It's just a collection of Seinfeld-like comments. If you are looking just for acid humour, this could be a book for you. I found what I was looking for in Phil Valentine's "The conservative's Handbook".
