Editorial evaluation

Stupidentity White males, Michael Moorecff0478#39;s screed towards "Thief-in-chief" George Bushcff0478#39;s energy elite, hit No. 1 at Amazon.com within days of e-publication. Why? Itcff0478#39;s as fulminating and stuffed with infuriating data as any proper-wing bestseller, as irreverent as The Onion, and as noisily entertaining as a wrestling smackdpersonal. Moore offers a extra interesting critique of the 2000 election than Ralph Nadercff0478#39;s Crashing the celebration (he argued with Nader, his vintage boss, who sacked him), and hecff0478#39;s severe at the same time as he advocates ousting Bush. however Moorecff0478#39;s rage is outrageous, couched in disgraceless gags and madcap comedy: "previous white adult men wielding martinis and wearing dickies have occupied our nationcff0478#39;s capital.... launch the SCUD missiles! convey us the highest of Antonin Scalia!... we're no longer [able] to carry unfastened and truthful elections. we'd like U.N. observers, U.N. troops." Moorecff0478#39;s ideas vary from on-the-money (Arafat should beat Sharon with Gandhicff0478#39;s nonviolent disgrace tactics) to over-the-most good: blacks should positioned infladesk white dolls in their cars so racist cops will suppose theycff0478#39;re chauffeurs; the ever-extra-Republicanesque Democratic celebration should be sued for fraud; "no contrihoweverions in opposition to advancing our civilization ever were given here out of the South [except Faulkner, Hellman, and R.J. Reynolds]," beresult in itcff0478#39;s too scorching to suppose instantly there; Korean dictator Kim Jong-il "has were given to boost himself beyond porn and John Wayne" via looking at higher movies, like Dude, Wherecff0478#39;s My automotive? (which incorporates "all you need to be informed about the us"). it doesn't matter what your politics, Stupidentity White males should make you blow your stack. --Tim Appelo
