it was ok
bookshelves: domestic-politics, humor

I'm generally a Moore fan--he's one of the left's best propagandists (and I mean that in a good way)--but this book is no fun and quite often logically suspect. Moore's films are usually a joy. They're evocative and provocative. They juxtapose interesting images and have moments of humor and poignancy.

Stupid White Men is none of those things. Maybe it would have been more interesting if I had read it during the Bush administration, but now it just feels half-baked. Ideas aren't fleshed out, there's very little documentation, and it's absolutely unfunny. I don't think I laughed out loud (LOL'd, natch) a single time. President Bush deserved to be pilloried for his horrendous policies while he was in office, and there are many good anti-Bush books out there, but this is not one of them.
