Birds of a feather after all. The original anti-Conservative tirade is on

Book Chief: Conservatives Want Slogans

WASHINGTON (AP) – Liberals read more books than conservatives. The head of the book publishing industry’s trade group says she knows why—and there’s little flattering about conservative readers in her explanation.

“The Karl Roves of the world have built a generation that just wants a couple slogans: ‘No, don’t raise my taxes, no new taxes,'” Pat Schroeder, president of the American Association of Publishers, said in a recent interview. “It’s pretty hard to write a book saying, ‘No new taxes, no new taxes, no new taxes’ on every page.”

Schroeder, who as a Colorado Democrat was once one of Congress’ most liberal House members, was responding to an Associated Press-Ipsos poll that found people who consider themselves liberals are more prodigious book readers than conservatives.

She said liberals tend to be policy wonks who “can’t say anything in less than paragraphs. We really want the whole picture, want to peel the onion.”

The book publishing industry is predominantly liberal, though conservative books by authors like former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., and pundit Ann Coulter have been best sellers in recent years. Overall, book sales have been flat as publishers seek to woo readers lured away by the Internet, movies and television.

Rove, President Bush’s departing political adviser, is known as a prodigious reader. White House spokesman Tony Fratto said Schroeder was “confusing volume with quality” with her remarks.

“Obfuscation usually requires a lot more words than if you simply focus on fundamental principles, so I’m not at all surprised by the loquaciousness of liberals,” he said.

Look where the same article interesting appears, unsurprisingly. It’s almost as if those Civic Platform boys are admitting to being liberals, after all if they weren’t why would they be so exited by this article, and statements made by a political hack aimed at stroking the egos of White liberals who lead otherwise boring and unremarkable lives?

The post has a little dig at me in it, but being one of the 66% of “Conservatives” who reads more than one book a year it didn’t really apply. What books you ask?

Here’s a list of five of the most interesting books I’ve read this year, all of which I heartily recommend:

Three Major Plays by Lope de Vega. Classical Spanish theater at it’s best. Punishment Without Revenge has actually one of the best endings in theater.

Primitive Wilderness Living & Survival Skills: Naked into the Wilderness. I am, of course, a crazed survivalist. This book is pretty good if you’re into primitive camping and trekking.

The Masks of Odin. I re-read this periodically, it’s an examination of Norse myth through a theosophical lens. Interesting to ponder whether all religions, as the author claims, contain the truth in code.

Life is a Dream and Other Plays. Contains Cervantes’ epic Siege of Numatia as well as The Trickster of Seville by de Molina. Cervantes play is considered a national treasure, and de Molina takes on the Don Juan legend by presenting the audience with a sinister, dark nobleman in defiance of God himself. The suave and alluring versions of Dracula seen on stage and screen were likely the result of de Molina’s Don Juan.

Duty Calls. I’m a Warhammer 40k nerd. So sue me.

Civic Platform doesn’t reveal it’s Green Party membership in just the childish glee in linking to the above article however, they happily support anti-Capitalist, Eco-Extremist, anti-War lefties even if theoretically there should be a world of difference between those “enlightened liberals” and inbred racists who live on Canada’s dole. But for some reason there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the two groups at all.
