Eh. Brock's still more or less a self-flagellating opportunist. It's worth reading if you enjoy (as I do) getting the dirt on some of the shadier characters in the right wing. I loved hearing that Grover Norquist has a giant portrait of Lenin (!) in his living room, and that Newt Gingrich is pretty much as awful as you would imagine he is, and reading of Laura Ingraham crawling around on all fours, drunk, at a gay club while whacked out of her mind on cat tranquilizers just brings a small glimmering tear of joy to my eye.

matt Exactly! Ahh schadenfreude...but there does not yet exist a word that describes the feeling of seeing the enemy show their true colors through hypocrisy
