1.0 out of 5 stars Life Among People Smarter & More Ethical Than Arlen Specter, April 2, 2012
This review is from: Life Among the Cannibals: A Political Career, a Tea Party Uprising, and the End of Governing As We Know It (Hardcover)
On the one hand I must grudgingly congratulate Mr. Specter for his bold stand in writing this book describing the onset of Alzheimer's and dementia. But on the other hand I was dismayed with the homoerotic tone he took in lustfully describing his fellow senators in the shower room. There probably is a demand somewhere for this creepy tale of octogenarian man-lust gone wild but it's hard to imagine that it resides within the cultural mainstream. We also did not need to know the background on what his favorite color is and why that was important in the context of the judicial committee minutia. It was also not necessary to know who he did and didn't like (and why) on the staff of the Senate dining room. Perhaps he thought that it was critically important to know that his limo driver smelled of garlic, how the guy stuttered, walked with a limp and that he had "very bad dandruff" but I just found that whole chapter to be boring and repetitive. To be fair, though, the chapter on conspiracy theories about UFOs, Marilyn Monroe's bra size and bigfoot was entertaining.

When I am not working or mocking useless political books I can be found at itsaboutliberty dot com, the best conservative forum on the web. Please feel free to drop in and give it a spin.

Trapeze: You've won me over with your Doonesbury-like pithiness. I'm thinking--not really--of converting to Conservatism. But I will certainly check your website. Merci beaucoup!

You slay me.

No, not really.

But feel free to stop in at our forum and have a go at mixing it up with some conservatives. We will even be nice to you as long as you are civil. So, there it is, bucky...I'm throwing down the gauntlet.

Kahn...I'm laughing at the superior intellect.
