This is a very funny post, but when you call this "cultural criticism," aren't you propping it up just so you can knock it down?

It's a poorly written, amateurish book review on what appears to be a conservative pop culture website. Surely the internet is full of poorly written, amateurish book reviews by conservatives, just as it is also full of poorly written, amateurish book reviews by leftists, apolitical people, people with unusually small ears, etc., etc.

(Unless I am missing something about this particular website or author that makes them a particularly good/representative example of "conservative cultural criticism." And I probably am.)

When I read the title of this post, I thought you would be writing about, say, something from The New Criterion. (Say what you will about The New Criterion -- and you'll be right -- but they definitely publish writers who are better than this hack.)


Hunter’s greatest gift is his style, his prose.


The author is army reserve kid struggling to get a CC education in southern Maine. Hat's off to him....he's reading and writing book reviews rather than getting into real trouble.

But yes, Andrew Breitbart and all his websites are loathsome.
