Read: . . . "Blowing Smoke: Why the Right Keeps Serving Up Whack-Job Fantasies about the Plot to Euthanize Grandma, Outlaw Christmas, and Turn Junior into a Raging Homosexual"
by Michael Wolraich

An interesting and informative look into what and who is the man and the brand that is Pat Buchanan. I don't always agree with the man and find myself cursing him as often as I hail him but there's something about him that I admire and respect. He's definitely a unique personality and this book offers a clearer picture into what makes him tick. Recommended.

There some minor mistakes and a few places where editing and rewriting would have made it a better book, but overall it is a good read for anyone wanting to know more about Buchanan and his role in modern conservativism and politics generally. I enjoyed learning about some of the folks who influenced him, some names I had never seen before. The author is clearly not of the same political persuasion, yet he does a fair and balanced analysis for the most part. The fact that he is young and not an American does hurt. At points, he rambles a bit. He provides too much detail and background sometimes. On a few occasions I was wondering "Now what does this have to do with Pat Buchanan?" Some of it could have been pared down.
