Bad Press

As if Sarah Palin’s spectral literary effort wasn’t enough, here’s another sign that the publishing industry is making its way towards the event horizon of the black hole of WTF: somebody is paying Jonah Goldberg millions of dollars to write a book called The Tyranny of Cliches.

If it’s anything like his last lightweight tome, Liberal Fascism (which I started to read and then took Dorothy Parker‘s advice to heart), it will be a collection of disconnected rants strung together like a popcorn strand and coming to the conclusion that Barack Obama is a fraud and only got to be president because his mother had connections in the publishing business. (Oh, wait….)
