For a lot of people, what they witnessed in their own country as the Global War On Terror unfolded sickened them: an entire political party that believed their own President was the enemy rather than the psycho Islamo-fascists that want to destroy us.
Should make more interesting reading, especially in the run up to November 7th. I'll review when I'm finished. In the meantime, Kathryn Jean Lopez of NRO interviews Jim (also an NRO contributor) about the book.

Now that it's pretty much done, I plan on hitting the ground running. And I'm starting with:
The New American Revolution, by Tammy Bruce
For a long time now, the Left has been pushing their Liberal agenda and Political Correctness down out throats, demanding that we sacrifice our individuality to their groupthink. Well, since Sept. 11, the rest of America is tired of it and we're not going to take it anymore! Bruce excoriates the Left (where she once resided) and explains how the nation is currently undergoing a "New American Revolution".

John Hawkins at Right Wing News interviewed her and the transcript is here. She has a fascinating analysis of the "hate-America first" Left based on her personal experiences. Tammy is considered by many to be a voice of the Right, but she started her political activism on the Left. Her personal philosophy, which emphasizes individualism and personal responsibility, became too incompatible with the "collectivist" mentality of American Liberalism. Upon reflection, she admits she's still not quite used to being labeled a Conservative:
"...itÂ’s still odd that IÂ’m now considered a conservative, but thatÂ’s because the left has gone so far to the left theyÂ’re fascists.
So someone like me is considered a conservative and it comes down to being willing to accept -- and IÂ’ve discussed labels in the book as well -- be willing to accept what youÂ’re called but also be clear for yourself about what you really are. In todayÂ’s day and age, I am a conservative, in the sense of what that stands for. TodayÂ’s conservative is yesterdayÂ’s classical liberal and IÂ’m determined to try to help make that label more popular, more broad, more accepted, and more understood and I hope IÂ’m doing a good job. "
The whole thing is definitely worth a read. Tammy's blog can be found here.
