Good enough for Pat though…

I recently ran across some pretty scathing comments about a book that were disarming in their candor:

• “Ridiculous crap” — a New York Daily News editor

• “Absolute crap” — a Huffington Post editor

• “Never, ever contact me again” — a Time magazine writer

• “Sensational rubbish” — a Newsweek editor

• “Seriously, get a life” — an AOL writer

The book? The Manchurian President: Barack Obama’s Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists by Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott.  And guess who had one of the co-authors listed on his show’s lineup to pitch the thing last week?  You’re right: Republican Party of Marathon County 1st Vice Chairman Pat Snyder (who also has a radio program on AM 550 — thanks, Midwest Communications.) 

Now, granted, the review is from the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is not exactly a non-partisan group.  Perhaps some of the people shown above who commented about it aren’t, either.  Heck, some would probably say I’m not.  But neither is Wing Nut Daily — and, of course, neither is 55 Feedback.  So I’m providing the review in the unlikely event that someone reading this may have actually heard the show and taken any of the discussion seriously:
