Oh look, Joe the Plumber-ish has a book.

Yup. Check out the "editorial reviews," which are attributed to random people with no identifying details and somewhat shaky syntactical facility. Featuring the ringing endorsement of "I read it in two days."

Western civilization's last gasp? Maybe, but check out the things with which people have tagged it and be heartened. The top four are "american idiot," "go away," "waste of time," and "white trash tax cheat." And it only gets better from there. By my count, one hundred fifty-six of the tags are clear insults, while a mere fifty-five are neutral or positive (and that's a conservative estimate--is the dude who entered "conservative thought" being sarcastic or not? Who can tell?).
