Andrew Sullivan's Book Receives Rave Reviews, Pouring In Daily

One little catch: the reviews are by Andrew Sullivan himself.

Pretty hysterical.

I was scanning over his screechblog the other day, and I did notice an inordinate number of superlatives lavished upon his book, by no less a literary light than Andrew Sullivan himself.

Taranto collected up a bunch of his biggest self-raves.

Priceless.

"This is a book about ideas, not political prescriptions. . . . It's an attempt to start the long road back to conservative intellectual clarity. . . . If you still care about those first principles, and why they are more relevant today than ever, . . . buy the book."--Andrew Sullivan


"If the book can prompt the usually level-headed David Brooks to contradict himself in order to criticize it and has sent Hugh Hewitt into conniptions, it might just be on to something about what has gone wrong with American conservativsm [sic]."--Andrew Sullivan


"They're angry. They wouldn't be if they didn't know this book exposes them in ways few yet have."--Andrew Sullivan


"These people are truly rattled by this book. I believe it's a depth charge into the degerenacy [sic] of the current conservative movement."--Andrew Sullivan
"Why are so many contemporary 'conservatives' lying about the contents of this book? The only reason I can come up with is that they are deadly afraid of its arguments. . . . Which is why you should read the book."--Andrew Sullivan

Give him props, though: At least he's willing to express his excessive self-regard under his own name. No "Wilson" or "Rick Ellensberg" here.

He's too infatuated with himself to see that maybe it's a problem.

Thanks to Larwyn.
