I don't seem to be alone in that estimation.Michelle Malkin: HILLARY ON THE SHELF has an excellant rundown of conservative reaction to the book. My favorite line is from John Podhoretz:
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."
This book is so over the top I have to wonder if maybe Klein is working for Hillary to make her more sympathetic. And believe me, I have even less a desire to see a distaff President Clinton than I did to see the first one.
