Conservative Hypocrites Exposed

Hi, everyone! This is Amanda Marcotte, and I spend most of my time as the executive editor at Pandagon and as a columnist/podcaster for RH Reality Check. I'm also the author of the new book It's a Jungle Out There: The Feminist Survival Guide to Politically Inhospitable Environments. I'm going to be your PEEK blogger for two weeks, and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to share all the things that I'm reading but not usually taking the time to blog about at Pandagon. Here's a post grabbed from my own blog this morning.

Glenn Greenwald sent me a copy of his newest book Great American Hypocrites, and I have to say that I liked it even more than his last one. It's Glenn at his best---he never fails to muster the proper outrage at right wing behavior, even when lesser humans start to lose our ability to be outraged because it's just so common. And his sense of humor is on full display, causing me to laugh pretty hard throughout the book.
