As the temperatures cool off and autumn turns to winter, there are more and more opportunities to curl up with a good book in front of a fireplace. Here are the most recently published political books I’ve been reading in rainy Cambridge – at least when I’m not being forced at hemp-point to read aloud from Lenin’s Imperialism: The Highest Stage of Capitalism:
Bankrupt, David Limbaugh: Limbaugh’s Bankrupt is the finest summary of recent liberal outrages. He covers everything from the Democrats’ attempts to undermine the war on terror to their insistence that the federal judiciary remain a political tool of liberal utopianism. Every conservative needs to read this book before even considering sitting out Election Day.
Godless, Ann Coulter: Coulter’s latest book is perhaps her best. All the liberal ire surrounding her characterization of the Jersey Girls was an attempt to obscure Godless’ central thesis: liberalism is a cult-like religion reliant on flimsy slogans, bad science, and ridiculous airs of moral superiority. One of Coulter’s main points – that liberals consistently trot out victims as spokespeople to shield their arguments from attack – is fresher now than when she wrote it (see Fox, Michael J.).
Unhinged, Michelle Malkin: The American left isn’t merely wrong – it’s gone mad, Malkin argues persuasively in her newest book. Leftists claim that they’re the political viewpoint of peace and equanimity, but Malkin hilariously documents the leftist moonbattery that has plagued America since the election of George W. Bush.
The Politics of Disaster, Marvin Olasky: Olasky’s Politics is a well-reasoned analysis of just what went wrong in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Olasky reminds us why religion and the private sector are vital elements in any response to future disaster.
The Beast of the East River,Nathan Tabor: Tabor’s Beast is a heated and well-researched volume on the burgeoning usurpation of American sovereignty by the United Nations. Is the goal of the U.N. world government? Tabor argues that it is, and does so with gusto.
