In the truest of iconoclastic forms, not even the icons of common 'iconoclasts' are safe. This book is intent on expressing genuine viewpoints without regard for the interconnected pigeonholes that most assume are supposed to go together. It makes for an interesting read.
And, of course, it's good to see any non-Southerner able to properly understand and analyze the use and value of the word 'yall'.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention: he is a hilarious writer. Many times I found myself laughing out loud as the zingers zoomed by in all directions. Humorless ideologues will harrumph (or, perhaps, foam at the mouth and start throwing things) when reading his opinions, which only proves he's on the right track. He's a graceful and highly literate author whose work is a thousand times better than the typical pablum currently atop the bestseller lists.
If you want to treat yourself to a literary cocktail as bracing as an extremely dry martini, then buy this book. You will find yourself challenged, occasionally outraged, but, most of all -- highly entertained.
