Coming Unhinged On A Friday Night

After a stressful week at work and on the blog, I came home this evening to a pleasant surprise. My copy of Michelle Malkin's new book, Unhinged: Exposing Liberals Gone Wild, arrived in the mail today. I'd normally take a quick read through the book and write a review for the blog, but I've already had the privilege of reading it ahead of time during one of Michelle's final draft stages. She has put together quite a list of nutcase eruptions from the far Left, and sometimes even the nearer Left as well. (I read the book and offered a scant few suggestions for edits, none of them particularly momentous, and Michelle very graciously thanks me in the Acknowledgments section.)

Those who enjoy Michelle's blog and her efforts during the past election to ensure that the excesses of the lunatic fringe of Air America, Howard Dean, MoveOn, International ANSWER, and the assorted unhinged activists that have hijacked the party of Scoop Jackson and Harry Truman will definitely find a lot of fun with Unhinged. She details many of the stories she only had time to mention in passing on the blog, plus many more instances of political insanity and foolishness from the last election season.

One of the highlights -- or lowlights -- comes when Michelle opens her e-mail Inbox and shares the hatred and vitriol that she gets from some readers. In fact, hers is the first book I've seen where the back cover doesn't include testimonials to the book, but a sample of hate mail directed at the author: "an ugly, obnoxious, and semi-literate gook", "a fetid heap of parrot droppings", and who could forget "ought to be shot between those Viet Cong eyes"? Michelle refers to this as "Unhinged Liberal Praise".

I'd encourage people to get a jump on the release and place your orders now, online at the above link. Everyone (except the Liberal Avenger) will have a great time with this read.
