Renowned blogger Teri O’Brien has written the nicest review of my newest collection of essays, The Bookworm Returns : Life in Obama’s America:
One reason that conservatives have a much easier time making logical arguments is that we constantly see our positions under siege by the popular culture, by academia, and by the legacy media. We are have to defend our positions, which are laughingly characterized as “out of the mainstream” by people who think Bill Ayers is just a college professor from Barack Obama’s old ‘hood. We see our values and traditions mocked and denigrated on a daily basis. Not so for liberals. They spout crazy talk that goes unchallenged. They repeat threadbare clichés to each other as everyone nods in agreement.
Someone who demonstrates the value of engaging in actual debate is the author of this book, Bookworm, a common sense conservative living in one of the most liberal bastions of the bluest of blue states, and the publisher of a popular blog, The Bookworm Room. Her many fans know that she uses her well-honed intelligence to slice and dice liberal foolishness, and to expose liberalism’s inherent inconsistencies with clever wit, humor and well-researched, hard evidence, delivered in extremely readable prose that is a delight to experience. Now, she has compiled some of her best into a new book, The Bookworm Returns: Life in Obama’s America.

By the way, when it comes to political writing, Teri is no slouch herself.
