Crunchy Con Book Finished

I’ve had lots of e-mails over the

past couple of years from NRO readers wondering when my crunchy conservatism

book was going to be finished. We’ll, it’s done. Crown Forum accepted the

manuscript today, and publication is set for February 14, 2006. The title:

Crunchy Cons: How Birkenstocked Burkeans, gun-loving organic gardeners,

evangelical free-range farmers, hip homeschooling mamas, right-wing nature

lovers, and their diverse tribe of countercultural conservatives plan to

save America (or at least the Republican Party).

Callooh! Callay! I got the cover art over the weekend, and it’s very, very

cool. I couldn’t have done this thing without you readers, and some of you

will appear in the book. Anyway, we’ll be putting together ideas for a book

tour in the next few months. If you want me to come your way and talk about

this stuff in the late-winter/early spring of 2006, drop me a note at If you don’t know what this is about, why, check

out the NRODT cover story from 2002.
