I love the first graf of this book review in the NYT:
To paraphrase H. L. Mencken, nobody ever went broke overestimating the self-absorption of the Democratic Party. Of late, authors like Jerome Armstrong and Markos Moulitsas Zúniga (“Crashing the Gate”), Peter Beinart (“The Good Fight”) and Joe Klein (“Politics Lost”), as well as magazine essayists like Michael Tomasky and Paul Starr in The American Prospect, have offered magic formulas to turn Democratic dross into electoral gold. Add to the list the odd couple of David Sirota, a Montana-based blogger with a take-no-prisoners mind-set, and George Lakoff, a Berkeley linguist with a grab-no-readers prose style.
(The author, Tobin Harshaw of the NYT op-ed page, has edited my work a few times.)
If you’re deeply interested in Lakoff, check out Anthony Dick’s excellent NRO review here.
