Her take on living in Obama's America, delivered from what some people might call the heart of it alternately made me laugh and reflect seriously at what we're becoming as a society, and I think it will have the same effect on you. It is, more or less, a diary on what we're going through right now. And being a collection of short essays, it's a great mental snack when you feel like giving your brain a treat.
One very notable example of 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. Her many fans know that she uses her well-honed intelligence to slice and dice liberal foolishness, and to expose its inherent inconsistencies with clever wit, humor and well-researched, hard evidence, delivered in extremely readable prose that is a delight to experience. For example, in a little over 600 words, she demolishes the anti-freedom, anti-choice Obamacare scheme by comparing it to grocery bag bans. Then I was the one nodding in agreement.
This book is not all wonky public policy--and even the entries written about serious public policy aren't written in a way that is the slightest bit wonky. I cheered when she busted a liberal professor's attempt to conflate the nihilistic world of Lena Dunham with the respect for traditional values permeating Jane Austen's wonderful novels. I marveled at her profound insights about the cycle of life and death inspired by, of all the things, the death of a mouse.
The book is organized into short essays, which makes it perfect for a quick break during the day. Grab a cup of coffee, and be inspired and intellectually refreshed.
You will thoroughly enjoy this book, but beyond that, it will provide you with the evidence and solid arguments that you need to withstand the relentless liberal assault against what you hold dear.
