Know Thine Enemy

Did anybody catch the interview on the Colbert Report last night with the author of this book?

Yeah. . . It's been a long, long time since I've wanted so vehemently to throw something at a woman on TV. (Lots of men, most notably the president, inspire this desire in me, but not so many women.) At the same time, I kinda want to read the book--for the same reasons I found one of those alarmist books on declining fertility among educated women to be so interesting (the title eludes me right now--sorry). It's a different way of thinking, and I like to get into people's minds. Such books help me to engage more meaningfully with people whom I appreciate having in my life but with whom I almost always disagree (e.g., my mother-in-law). ;)

Oh my god, what a train wreck that was! Both Mr. Jane and I were screaming obscenities at the TV.

It seemed like Steven Colbert was completely disarmed, too...he didn't seem to know how to react to the fact that this woman was completely agreeing with all the over-the-top stuff he threw out at her. It was certainly, er, "interesting".

Bitch Ph.D has a link to the video, in case you have not been punished enough . . .

Yeah, I couldn't decide if she was trying to play along in the parody spirit of the show, or what. In any case, she was appalling with her little breathy voice and twee hairdo. Oh, and the ridiculous hypocrisy of her book!

Yes, we thought it was a joke at first. Goes in the category of: sometimes you just gotta laugh, but then you better make sure you're carrying a big stick.
