|I have absolutely no interest in reading Ed Klein's poorly sourced, factually challenged sleaze book on Hillary Clinton. In case you do, here's a succinct take on the book from someone who has read it: John Podhoretz (in the NY Post):
Even most conservatives can't abide the book, and by the way, Klein has now backed off the most dispicable charge in the book, namely the charge that Bill conceived daughter Chelsea by raping his wife. While we're going around demanding apologies, I think it's time someone demanded that Klein apologize to the Clinton family -- especially Chelsea. And Klein might take a second to apologize to genuine rape victims, too...
This is one of the most sordid volumes I've ever waded through. Thirty pages into it, I wanted to take a shower. Sixty pages into it, I wanted to be decontaminated. And 200 pages into it, I wanted someone to drive stakes through my eyes so I wouldn't have to suffer through another word.
Though Klein suggests in his subtitle that he has written a study of a power-hungry politician — "What She Knew, When She Knew It, And How Far She'll Go to Become President" — he's produced something quite different. An unduly celebratory biography is called a "hagiography." Klein's book is a "hate-eography."
