Obligatory Reading of the Day

The Authoritarian Streak in the Conservative Movement:

The despotic personality types we see in the Bush White House have their origins in the amoral politics practiced by the low-lifes of the Nixon administration.

That is an excerpt from John Dean’s new book (which is on my amazon wishlist….cough, cough…).

  1. Don’t you live near a library? Nowadays you can visit many libraries virtually and get on the hold list for a popular title. (I’m #6 in a queue of 26 waiting for the Dean book in my multi-branch county.)
    Support your local library!

  2. I am greedy that way. I like to own the book I read, keep it, come back to it over time, etc. That’s why our home collection is so huge.
