Reader contributor Ted McClelland (read his account of sailing with Great Lakes shippers here) reviews the new book by Sun-Times columnist and Douchebag of Liberty Robert Novak for Salon.

Speaking of the Douchebag of Liberty, here he is on the Democrats’ crazy crazy plan to run a brown or female person for president:

“Republicans are very pessimistic about 2008. When you talk to them off the record, they don’t see how they can win this thing. And then they think for a minute, and only the Democratic Party, with everything in their favor, would say that, ‘OK, this is the year either to have a woman or an African-American to break precedent, to do things the country has never done before.’ And it gives the Republicans hope.”
