Basically Silly
By Gail Heriot

Basic Books used to be a great publisher. Now it is reduced to publishing a book with a title like "Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election & Why They'll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them)." The author is a professor of media studies at New York University, and as the title suggests, the book is the product of a fevered mind. How do I know? I was unlucky enough to see an advance copy sent out to drum up book reviews.
