Via The Mudflats, the blog that did so much to bring attention to Sarah Palin’s less-than-starburstacular career before William ‘Wrong Again’ Kristol cruised Juneau:
To anticipate your next question, no this is not a joke, or some fabulous Photoshop creation by the Mudflats Art Department (flyinureye). It is in fact the real cover and the real title of a real book that will be in bookstores on November 17, also too.
“Going Rouge is compiled by Richard Kim and Betsy Reed, two top editors of the left-leaning weekly The Nation, and includes essays by Nation regulars like Katrina vanden Heuvel, Naomi Klein, and Katha Pollitt. It’s the first release from OR Books, a fledgling outfit founded earlier this year by publishing veterans John Oakes and Colin Robinson that “embraces progressive change in politics, culture and the way we do business,” according to its website.”
But wait, there’s more! In addition to those listed above, Mudflatters will be able to enjoy essays by Max Blumenthal, Shannyn Moore, and yes,…. yours truly! I was quite honored to be asked to write a piece for the book.
It is a deep, deep disappointment to me that Amazon not only has failed to make this thrilling tome available for pre-order, but when I typed GOING ROUGE into the search bar, they suggested I “meant” that other book, the unintentional parody. I may be dyslexic, Amazon, but I’m not a godsdamned idiot!
EDIT: Meant to credit Valdivia for bringing this to my attention.
And unfortunately WordPress (FYWP) won’t let me ‘fix’ the link:
