    Disappointing

    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".
