Re: Rod’s Cover

Ah, you can’t really blame Crown Forum for my

long title. It’s one of the three I suggested, and they thought it was best,

and I agree. The idea is mostly to explain, on the cover and in a

semi-humorous way, what the book is about, and more specifically, to whom it

is targeted. After all, what does “Crunchy Cons” say to anyone who isn’t

familiar with the NR/NRO essays and blogging about it? The subtitle — “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)” — intends to highlight the patchwork and eccentric

nature of Crunchy Con Nation, and it gives the reader an idea of the tone

and substance of the text (that is, that it’s not a book of political

theory, but a book about unconventional conservatives and why they’ve

chosen, for conservative reasons, to live as they have). My guess is that

you’ll read that title and either be intrigued enough to open the book, or

it will make no sense to you and you’ll move on.

A Tyrannical Minority and Silent Majority

As I noted Monday on the Corner, British journalist James Kirkup has done a great public service in sharing a document that helps explain how the transgender movement, which many privately admit has overreached and is unconvincing, has been so successful so quickly.
